    4-2 BC final. Watts 1-3--4.

    BC's been up 4-1 in every game this year. 5 on 5 it's been no contest. They really, really need to clean up that penalty kill, though. Of the 6 goals we've given up this year, 5 have been on the power play. Only one EV goal through 3 games against non-bottom feeder teams is pretty solid.

    Whatever. PK can be practiced. They're looking good and getting the wins. I'm happy.

    Women's hockey, we get the $h!+ days and times.

    QU put a legit 900+ in the stands for a rare 7:30 Saturday non-league game last weekend.

    ECAC mandates 6 pm Friday and 3:00 pm Saturday start times for league games. How stupid is that in terms of encouraging attendance?

    6pm Friday is terrible, but I actually don't mind the "weekend afternoon" niche BC has found.

    BC is 16% on the PP and only 75% on the penalty kill and still controlled every game this year. You have to feel like those numbers are both going to improve a ton.

    God, I'm just happy I got to watch a game, we haven't had a game in like two weeks...

    Very stupid. When did they decide to do that? Didn't they play at 7pm and 4pm before this change? Saturday at 3pm is fine but Friday at 6pm makes no sense at all. There's nothing to be gained by playing at 6pm compared to 7pm. Also, whenever I see games on Friday afternoons at 4pm I wonder what geniuses thought that time would be good for anyone. It's ridiculous.

    That is some intrepid reporting you did there
    China won 7-1. Game was close for two periods, 1-0 China after one and 3-1 after two. SHU just had nothing left in the tank for the third period.

    They changed from 7 and 4 to 6 and 3 for the 2016-2017 season. Not 100% sure on the reasoning. I think it had more to do with moving Saturday to an earlier time either to allow for earlier arrival back to campus for the road teams or more time between afternoon and evening games in the same facility, then the Friday slot was backed up an hour to ensure a proper rest interval, as I understand it.

    I agree that the Saturday time is fine, particularly after the holidays, but the Friday start time is terrible from an attendance perspective.

    Terrible for certain. Prime time to start any hockey game on a Friday night is 7pm. To take yourself out of that slot is to treat your sport in a lesser way than it deserves. Shame on all that voted to do this.

    I believe all the coaches did.

    I figured as much but didn't want to assume in case it wasn't their decision. Not too bright on their part. Women's hockey doesn't get a ton of fans at games in general so to make it harder for potential fans to get to a game after work on a Friday seems pretty stupid. Even the majority of D3 games are scheduled for 7pm on Friday nights (men's & women's). That extra hour makes a big difference to someone driving into town for a game but it really has no serious impact on the players and coaches. Boo to the ECAC coaches.

    I guess I shouldn't criticize just the ECAC since the WCHA has some Friday start times that are much worse. For example, today there are 2 games that start well before 6pm...one is at 3:07pm and the other is at 3:37pm. Crazy times for a Friday! And what's with the ":07" and ":37" starts anyway?!

    Players come on the ice on the hour or half hour for introductions and the National Anthem. That takes 7 minutes.

    Then the game starts at :07 or :37.

    So get out there for those formalities 7 minutes beforehand and start the game on time like everyone else.

    I see RIT hosts Yale at 2 pm today. I agree these are silly start times. If you are going to play afternoon games, why not just play Saturday and Sunday, and miss one fewer day of school? I wonder what the players' preference is.

    CCT v SLU on a home and home today and tomorrow both at 3pm. Caveat that the mens teams are playing each night at 7.

    Banner raising tomorrow!

    Or for parents who have to take a day off to go watch their daughters play. Makes no sense.

    The WCHA Friday afternoon games are usually due to men's hockey being in the evening on the same rink.

    As for the games starting at 07 or 37 rather than 00 or 30, that is to accommodate TV broadcasts. It's definitely a small subset that are televised, but the decision to broadcast is usually made fairly close to game day, and this way, no time change is then needed.

    2-0 Minnesota over UMD about halfway through the 1st period.
