    Great, thanks! I was worried there would be some sort of prep needed, and now I know there is!

    There is seriously something missing with this team...first goal the forwards cover nobody...the second goal Krys just floats in and hands them the puck for a 2 on 1....just absolutely no battle from a number of players...everyone wants to float around and hope the puck squirts to them...can Bellows win one freaking battle for a puck???

    MUCH better effort. Now I know people will say "Well, YEAH...they won" - but that's the point....that's WHY they won because they were engaged and into the game and gave a lot of effort. I think that's all that a lot of us are asking for.

    If the Providence/ND game stays ties (it's in OT now), we only have to win one out of two next weekend.

    ND and BC both tie. So if we win two next weekend and BC splits with Lowell, BU wins the league (owning the tiebreaker over BC).

    The NBCSN announcer said that a ND win would give them a bye. That didn't happened, but BU did win to reach 27 points, which is how many ND would have had with a win. I looked at the standing after all the games ended and it does appear that BU has locked up a bye with the 3 points this weekend. ND and UML can still pass BU, but the best PC can do is tie BU for fourth with 27 points, and no one else can reach 27 points. If BU and PC are tied for 4th with 27 points BU will be seeded 4th as they win the tiebreaker. If BU, PC and UML all finish tied for 3rd with 27 points it looks like BU (2-1-1) would be seeded 3rd, PC (also 2-1-1, but 0-1-1 vs BU) 4th and UML (1-3) 5th.

    I would much prefer a sweep of ND however, as I want the team going into the playoffs on a winning streak and hopefully playing well.

    Nice W, with a nice balanced scoring attack. Have to say I am surprised that Quinn stuck with his Friday lineup.

    First place is still a good possibility.

    It was good to see a solid 60 minutes of action last night. Maybe it was the large sheet of ice, but they skated well. Still some eye-rolling moments, like Krys's miscue that led to UNH's second goal, but light year's better than they've been playing the last couple of weeks. I know Harvard and UML are better than UNH, but BU hasn't been playing well in general so regardless of the talent level of the opponent, I think it was a definite improvement.

    As for playoff seedings, BU has clinched a bye. As for where they finish, BU should just concentrate on themselves and not worry about the other games. Same goes for me. They'll end up where they end up and if they don't get the position they want, they have no one to blame but themselves. It is good to know that their wins over BC and Providence could help them down the road.

    The number of cars pulled over by MA State Police on the ride home last night was excessive.

    So, the final weekend features series between 1-4 and 2-3 in the standings and any of the four could come out on top.

    Well, as someone else pointed out, it's not quite clear that they have changed that much. The '90-'91 team (26 years ago!) was the best and most exciting BU team I ever got to see, and they lost a ton of talent early. Of course, that was back in the day when the US Olympic team was made up from college players, so we knew every four years that we would be losing some guys (McEachern, Tkachuk, and Lachance left BU at the end of that season to play for the Olympic squad).

    However, having said that it does feel different these days. Nowadays if you recruit a kid who is as promising as Chris Drury (for example) you're probably not thinking he's going to be there for four years. At this rate, it doesn't look like anyone is going to knock John Cullen off his throne anytime soon.

    You got me thinking so I looked to see how many players left BU early after every season since the start of Hockey East. I included all players who played in at least one game (i.e., Erik Udahl is not included in last season's count) and were not on the team the following season if they had eligibility left, except players who missed a season but returned to the team the following season.

    It wasn't any one thing. In some cases, there were some attitude issues (the Lappin brothers). In the case of Matt Pesklewis, it was an injury. Overall, it was addition by subtraction because the team improved dramatically the following season. It was too bad about Pesklewis though; he was a good guy who played hard every shift.

    I think Sean's greater point is that the "leaving early" thing is not anything new...it's been going on for a long time. Which, of course, begs the question: Parker was still able to "absorb" these losses and maintain an elite program. What has change? (not speculating...just throwing it out there)
