    St. Lawrence vs Boston College

    St. Lawrence putting the blocks to BC in the first period...faster skating, quicker decisions and better passing, so far.

    Completely brainless move by Webster to take that penalty especially when her team was enjoying the decisive benefit of the play.

    Until Kent's late power play (nice wrist shot) goal SL had more shots on goal than BC during that power play...which the goal rendered academic.

    Like both teams but would like to see SL win.

    Anemic sized crowd from what one can tell.

    BC seems to have solved this problem; now up 4-0.

    BC up 5-0 after 2. Some poor goaltending, good defense by BC. This one is over.

    5 goals on only 17 shots against is not what you want defensively in the playoffs, especially during the NCAAs. I feel very bad for SLU right now.

    You sure got that right, and one more just before the period ended. Total SL meltdown.

    SL's inability to convert on a few good opportunities in the first in conjunction with Webster's boneheaded penalty came back to bite them. I wonder if her role in this has dawned on her yet?

    SL, unfortunately, is more bark than bite today. Where is that offensive juggernaut that I've been reading about all season? Disappointing performance that started well.

    Grauer penalty looked to be an invented call.

    Major error on the 4th goal by Harrison. Camera angle made it look like she didn't know where she was in her crease.

    Before the 5th goal I was thinking that SL is looking at having to climb Everest in the third period with not much so far in the game to encourage the climb. Now they have to do it without equipment.

    Wonder if Harrison gets pulled to start the third? But it's all academic. SL looks defeated (can't blame them). Weak shots and less than stellar goaltending...bad combo. Offense has let down the defense and the defense has returned the favour.

    Too bad.

    So do I! The've got kind of a worst case/nightmare scenario going on. On the third goal, the first shorthanded, SLU looked liked they had a good PP going. Then I partially looked away, but I thought I saw the Saints just hand the puck over to BC to set up the shorty.

    Re: St. Lawrence vs Boston College

    I thought that the only likely blowout today was going to be UW vs RM...SL's Frozen Four dreams have been violently dashed against the rocks of reality.

    Inability to hit the net...feeble shots...terrible performance in the clutch.

    I ask again, where was Webster, Marchment and Miller's offense?

    Can't help but feel badly for them but they wrote their own ticket.

    They blowed up, they blowed up good, they blowed up real good.

    Congratulations to BC.

    somewhere on this forum somebody said defense wins championships
    SLU didn't, it wasn't even a warmup for BC to face WI

    On the last goal, (I think it was), Reyes just lets Newkirk skate in unmolested and comfortably watches as her team gets scored on. And Webster did about the same thing on the same play because she was aware of Newkirk's presence. Both of them were making cocktails in the kitchen.

    St Lawrence pulled up the tent stakes in the second period and seemed like they wanted to get a head start on beating the traffic heading back to NY.

    Yeah they really did. In the third period they called timeout while it was 5-0 in what appeared to be a sort of "you're getting run out of the building in your last game of the year, finish with a little bit of pride" kind of moment. I don't even think it as after an icing.

    It did give SLU a bit of a spark for a good minute or so and then BC scored #6 shortly after.

    With having a couple of tighter games before this, does it concern you that you got the equivalent of skating through whipped cream for resistance from SLU? Especially now that facing Wisconsin is a reality. A reality that is as good as Minnesota was last year while your squad, Keller aside, doesn't have the firepower it had last year.

    BC definitely has enough firepower to beat Wisconsin. The questions for the Eagles will be defensively. Despite all of her offensive accolades, and I agree that they are deserved, she's not in the top handful of defensive D in the country. It comes in handy to have those when playing the Badgers. North Dakota has a very good blue line, and that was a big reason why the Fight n Hawks were able to hang as late as they did a week ago. When I've seen BC, they don't always play D for 60 minutes. The Eagles will certainly have the incentive to do so on Friday.

    Let's frame it a different way:
    Desbiens has one loss this year. In that game she gave up one goal. She has been in net for four games that ended as ties. In those game, she game up a single goal three times, and pitched a shutout in the 4th game.

    So BC either has to do something few teams have done this year, get a second puck past her. Or they have to shut Wisconsin out.
