    Hide the women and children, those ne'er do wells from North Andover are coming! Actually, the Warriors are far less "Merri-hacky" than they have been in recent seasons. There's no big scary defenseman to leg check your youngsters (Bigos is long gone), and MC averaged less penalty minutes per game than the Eagles (and even less than those "SMT's" from Durham). It's a good thing they keep the penalties down, because their PK is horrific (7th worst in the country).
    BC has owned Merrimack in the playoffs and especially at BC. While I can hope for an upset, not likely to happen (Grant, great job on that HE Playoffs KRACH).

    Oh, and Jerry York should be UNANIMOUS Hockey East coach of the year.

    Not to be ignored, the ladies are on the ice at 1 PM at Conte against the ladies from OSU. A good turnout for BC would be great on Saturday afternoon.

    The Frozen Four is on the line. One and out is the rule.

    As far as I know, NESN no longer has a contract with Hockey East (not sure which party did not renew). They have been showing ECAC playoffs for a few years now - they can't show Hockey East playoffs anyway (at least before the semis and finals which apparently they feel is "worthy" of televising) because Hockey East TV is streaming them and charging independently for that. The reason there have been many UMass (Amherst) games on this year is because they went out and made their own TV deal. So it's not about showing the "best" game. It's all about (as usual) money.

    He absolutely should be but I'm sure it will be something cutesy like him sharing it with Madigan or something stupid like that.

    On top of that, if there was still a deal with NESN they wouldn't be showing the 1 v 10 matchup. Most likely would be the BU-UConn game.

    despite the dismal crowds at Conte Forum this year, BC led the league in average home attendance (all games) . Sadly, no school averaged 5000

    There was hardly any life out there on the ice. A very boring and lackluster game to watch. BC was outshot badly and lucky to win 1-0.

    Someone needs to kick this team in the butt and wake them up.

    I’m sure the Womens team will be much better to watch Saturday afternoon 📌

    Last night at BU, you could hear the players' chatter during the action. Attendance maybe 1,200. Students on break, but students have comprised a diminishing fraction of attendance at BU for several years now.

    It's ironic, the caliber of play has never been better (one man's opinion), but attendance down all over.

    BC with 2400 had the largest crowd of all 4 hockey east games
    Blame has to go to league for stupid playoff format
    CT got a bye but no home game
    An interesting development is the Maine-Providence series on NBCSports Boston
    Someone probably paying for telecast but can never remember the channel covering college hockey
    don't tell the Globe- don't even have list in their sports TV section

    BC doesn't deserve the credit for that attendance. Merrimack brought a big student section and band.

    They actually did. There was a time in between NESN stints where comcast had a package. Started with Sean Grande and Cap Raeder. And then Eric Frede. Forget how many years but know they did games around '98-'01.

    BC’s SOG numbers look anemic through two games, at HOME. If they survive Merrimack they’ll have to scare up more offensive chances to make the HE Final.

    So do you think you will see NU or Providence in the final?

    Oh stop sandbagging 💄 BC and BU are equally bad this year. But I suspect NU will end up winning Hockey East anyway

    Not only the low SOG but the poor quality of the shots. Shot selection is very poor. When they have a good shot they usually pass and end up with no shot in net. A lot of poor passes and the timing is usually poor leading to many of their shots blocked or deflected harmlessly away. If you also notice Fitzy has had a number of shots blocked at the blue line.

    How many shots close in where they completely missed the net ?

    If they make the final Saturday that should be the end of their season. This team just doesn’t have what it takes this year but give them credit for winning 1st place and making it respectable with 20 wins.

    Jarmond fielded a few questions upstairs at pikes before the game about the athletics at BC.
