This version of the Miracle on Ice takes place at the CHE hockey tournament in lake Placid in April, 2008, where Alex Scalise of Pittsfield, MA and Terri Bullett of Chateauguay, QC were both registered for the tournament for the first time.
Alex went to Lake Placid because he was asked to play for another Massachusetts team that needed a goalie (not his regular team). It was Terri’s team’s first time playing in Placid too. They met on the Thursday night as their teams were both staying at the Golden Arrow on the same floor, two-three rooms apart.
After Alex’s team was eliminated on the Saturday, he was sulking in his beer when Terri stepped in to make him feel better. He saw some potential so decided to let her try and make him feel better for the rest of his life.
Terri and Alex spent the next few years living the miracle in QC and MA, running the Northway (Route 87 in New York) every other weekend so they could see each other and for their kids to spend time together. This past August (2014), they got engaged and are planning their wedding in Lake Placid for next September.
Proof that miracles do happen in Lake Placid, on and off the ice ☺
