    Didn't see last night's game but it could just be a different approach based on opponent. Gotta know your personnel. If you don't have the weapons to play how you want to play, adapt and put them in position to be successful.

    Nice to see the progress this team has made now that they're through the Denver/St. Cloud portion of their schedule. Two very nice road wins this weekend, especially at Matthews, always a tough place to play on the road.

    And on an unrelated note, AJ Dillon is a beast. That is all.

    I don't know how long they can sustain this but we know this is how they must play to win.

    This was the best game I've seen them play this year in all three zones.

    They kind of laid back in the 2nd period but went back to getting more shots on net and got those goals to put the game away.

    McPhee's wrist shot was a laser from the right circle and what we need more from him since we don't have a true sniper on the team.

    We're an offense by committee.

    In many of the games, their shots are blocked and harmlessly deflected away from the opposing goalie. Learning to take good shots

    at the right moment is what they need to do more. (Quick release)

    The next 5 games including Harvard are winnable games if they keep sustaining this type of consistent play.

    Their non conference record is horrendous so they need to pile on the points in league games and hopefully they can

    make the NCAAs this year.

    It's OK. The Eagles are wide awake and playing well.
    Their play against NU last Saturday gives me high hopes. Exceptional defensive effort shutting them down.
    Let's see if they can keep it rolling.
    Go Eagles!

    You around? I may have an extra.

    Harvard is still a tough foe and after last year watching them them thoroughly trounce BC 🔥the Crimson will not be taken lightly.

    They played Minnesota 2 tough games and Madsen is a very good goalie that can stone BC again.

    But I am more confident BC will play them a much better game this time.

    BC must avoid stupid penalties as last year they really made the Eagles pay on their power plays at Bright Arena 🥅

    Hopefully BC can return the favor this time in their home Rink 🏒⛸⛸

    If this is correct, it will be at the BU and Northeastern games not the Harvard game. The NU game is December 9 not November 9 as stated below.

    From the BC Promotions page:
    Friday, November 24 vs. Harvard | 4 p.m. •Autograph Session: Now is your chance to get the autograph of your favorite Eagle! The team will be signing autographs immediately following their game against Harvard. Posters and markers will be provided.
    •Giveaway: Posters and Magnets will be given away at the main gates.

    Friday, December 1 vs. BU | 7 p.m. •100th Anniversary of the BC vs. BU Rivarly: Help us pack the house as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Comm Ave!
    Annual Men's Hockey Toy Drive: Please consider bringing new, unwrapped toys for the team to deliver to Boston Children's Hospital this holiday season! The team will also be collecting toys on Saturday, Nov. 9, when they face Northeastern.
    •The BC lacrosse team team will be featured on-ice during the first intermission. The Eagles competed in the NCAA Championship game inMay, and will begin their 2018 road to the championship this February.

    That was a very entertaining game probably deserving of a tie. I would think Harvard turns it around like BC has.

    This tie felt lie a loss but we'll take the point.

    They did not play as well as last Saturday against the Huskies.

    Not enough SOGs, too many penalties and mistakes.

    I guess we can blame it on too much turkey ))

    Good crowd at Conte for a change on a holiday weekend.

    Looking at point totals, pretty good balance across top three lines. Pretty encouraging when all would be expected to return next year. And to think Eeli Tolvanen was supposed to be in the mix for a year or two. Ultimately they still might not be a tournament team this year but i think we've seen the market correction in regard to roster building. Things look very promising going forward.

    Dead tired from driving to Syracuse and back in one day but we finally crush the Orange in the Carrier Dome with our backup QB 🏈

    Not sure what bowl but a good finishing for the seniors without Anthony Brown and Kamrin Moore, etc. I did not see #7 either Landry.

    Our hockey team needs to bury 1st place and possibly the Hockey East Tournament to get into the NCAA 🔥

    Iím sure you notice our OCC games are not pretty⛳️

    Love this team. Good old fashioned fundamental hockey. Not boring at all to this fan.
    What's your take CC?

    Iím sure both teams will be pumped up Friday and Saturday 🔥
