Regular Season

Bedford resumed it's division II regular season on January 4, 2014 with a 5-2 win over Goffstown High School at Sullivan Arena. The victory would be the beginning of the programs most dominant stretch of hockey to date. Notable victories in the span included a come from behind 6-4 win at Dover that saw the Bulldogs score three times in the final four minutes. The February 19th road game at Spaulding High School of Rochester provided the most memorable win. With the Bulldogs Trailing 4-3, Bedford scored with :40 seconds remaining in regulation with the goaltender removed for an extra skater. Just minutes into overtime Senior Neil Soucy's goal gave the Bulldogs their 14th straight victory. Bedford ended the regular season with a senior night 3-0 shutout win over Goffstown, followed by a March 1st victory at Merrimack High School. The sixteen straight wins to finish the regular season vaulted Bedford to the top of the division II standings with a record of 18-0.

The first seeded Bulldogs opened defense of their state title on Saturday March 8th, hosting the 9th seeded Lebanon High School Raiders at Sullivan Arena. Bedford goaltender Stevan Tempesta's saves on two quality scoring opportunities in the opening minutes allowed Senior Harrison Voloshin to put Bedford on the scoreboard first. Taking a Mike Dee feed at 4:12 he snapped a shot home from the right wing face-off circle. Junior Asa Palker added to the lead at 7:34 giving the Bulldogs a 2-0 advantage at the end of the first period. The remainder of the game was dominated by Bedford's special teams. Asa Palker recorded his second of the afternoon scoring glove side on a breakaway at 5:49 as a Lebanon 5-on-3 three power play was expiring. Voloshin added another shorthanded goal at 10:26 to make it 4-0 at the end of two periods. Voloshin completed the programs second playoff hat trick, joining Luke McDonough's 2012 quater final effort, just 41 seconds into the third period, converting an Asa Palker shorthanded set up at the far post. A Drew Connelly power play slap shot from the right point at 5:42 finished the scoring giving Bedford a 6-0 quarter final win.

The Bulldogs victory set up a rematch on Thursday March 13th of the 2012 state semi final at the Rinks of Exeter, with the 4th seeded Spaulding High School's Red Raiders. After being stopped by Bedford Sophomore goaltender Alec Lindberg on a breakaway midway through a scoreless first period Spaulding opened the scoring just :26 seconds into the second with a Brent Phillips goal from the high slot. The Bulldogs responded at 2:51 of the period when Junior Drew Connelly moved the puck to defense partner Brett Silva, whose pass off the right wing boards, sent Asa Parker in alone to tie the game at 1-1. Bedford went ahead at 6:18 with Jeremy Myers scoring on a goal mouth scramble with Patrick Gagliardi collecting the assist. Phillips second of the game for the Red Raiders on the power play at 12:23 though sent the game to the second intermission tied at 2-2. The crucial third goal and game winner came at 11:56 of the third period, when Senior Nate Boyd redirected a Jeremy Myers pass from the left wing on a 3-on-1 rush past Spaulding goaltender Ben Toussaint. A breakaway save followed by a diving stick save by a Spaulding skater on a Bulldog attempt to score into an empty net gave the Red Raiders one last chance to tie the game in the chaotic final 3:04. When a redirected centering pass on Spaulding's last rush of the game went just wide in the final seconds though Bedford had secured it's forth trip to the state final in five years.

NHIAA Division II State Finals

Bedford High School entered the 2014 NHIAA Division II State Final on Saturday March 15th with an opportunity to join Notre Dame, Berlin, Concord, and Souhegan as the only high schools to win three consecutive state championships. The Bulldogs carried the play at the Verizon Wireless Arena to the third seeded Bow High School Falcons in the first period but were unable to take advantage of their opportunities in a scoreless first period. Bow recorded the games first goal at 1:33 of the second when Chris Mead beat Bedford goaltender Stevan Tempesta glove side from the right wing face off circle. The Bulldogs answer came at 3:51 on the power play when Jeremy Myers tipped Harrison Voloshin's low rocket from the face-off dot past Bow goaltender Robbie Margeson with Patrick Gagliardi picking up an assist. Nate Boyd gave Bedford a 2-1 lead on a spinning goal line backhand at 11:46, with both Voloshin and Junior Brett Veilleux earning assists. Less than a minute later at 12:34 Jeremy Myers feathered in a backhand from a difficult angle with assists from Ben Desrosiers and Asa Palker making it 3-1 at the end of two periods. The third goal provided all the insurance the Bulldogs needed as they allowed only five Bow shots in a scoreless third period. Bedford's division II journey which began with frustration and five consecutive losses in December of 2010 had ended with a 21-0 season, twenty eight straight division wins spanning two seasons, and the programs third consecutive state championship.
