    I think marketing plays a big role. There is none.

    Not only should each individual school be badgering students to buy tickets (which NEED to be cheaper, btw) from the second they set foot on campus in September; whichever organization runs the Beanpot needs to do more than throw a few recycled TV ads on NESN every year in January. Do outreach with youth leagues; run a social/digital campaign to attract young alumni; and for the love of God, start promoting it earlier! I remember a few years back they didn’t even have the ticket landing page on their archaic website ready for use until December. Pathetic.

    I agree with your ideas but a game that ends at midnight on a school night will be a tough sell to a lot of 10 / 12 year old leagues.

    Sure, but worth a shot since they don't currently offer ANYTHING in terms of outreach to local hockey communities. High school teams, prep teams, travel leagues etc. may jump at the chance to get their players to an event like this.

    NU winning tomorrow night will help. BU & BC winning every ****ing year is bad for the brand.

    Crotty and Olsson expected to play, Harper not expected to play, says Quinn per the BHB.

    Remains to be seen if Griffin will be in for NU. He missed Friday.

    I'm rooting for Northeastern tonight, but most of all, I'm just rooting for chaos. Let's see a repeat of the 2011 final!

    Also, my friend did some digging and found that tonight's game will likely be a sell-out. Great news. Hope the atmosphere is crazy.

    Not just not expected, he was ruled out. BHB's coverage of Harper's health status has been horrible. It took three weeks of him not dressing for them to even report a single thing on it. At this point all that's been reported is he has the flu but no one has asked or been able to get any further info on his long-term status or why this has taken so long.
    I was formerly a tasty 7-11 beverage. Now I'm a fan of defunct hockey teams.

    As best i can tell he has not played since 1/6? There must be more to the story?

    Their coverage of the team this year overall has not been good. It has kind of been on a downward trek the last few years but it has been especially noticeable this year. Did they have a large season preview issue this year? I don't remember. I would check but their website is down the day of the Beanpot Championship.

    Re: Beanpot LXVI: The Tong Wars Resume

    Or how about this: "Take us through that last goal."

    "Um....he gave me a good pass, I shot and scored."

    Insightful....I remember a quote from the 1976 Olympics (it's always stuck in my mind). It was from US hockey player Steve Jensen: "I looked up and it was in the net."

    Ugh, I hate that so much of their game coverage are verbal rehashes of the goals. If I want to know how every goal materialized I would watch the highlights. I would guess some of the people in the athletic department's PR department must be laughing hysterically at how easy their job has been this semester keeping the media members off DQ's back. For heaven's sake, our leading scorer suddenly doesn't play and no one at the Freep bothers to ask "Coach, why didn't Patrick Harper suit up tonight?" or "Coach, your leading scorer hasn't played in a month. Just how sick is he? Is his general health all right? Is this a season-ending thing?" All 100% legitimate questions to ask a coach, not one of which seemingly has been asked or reported on. If they did ask and DQ didn't respond, then write that. Sports Journalism 101 - Team A's best player doesn't play, ask the coach why.

    BC’s going with the underrated 11 forwards, 6 d-men, 3 goalies line-up in the B(eat pot) C(insulation) game.

    Lol, lohan is a dman but he got listed with the goalies as an extra dman

    I think that was the right call on the no goal. There was a nudge from the dman but not enough. Looked like the BU forward could have made more of an effort to avoid primeau.

    Looks like the “Northeastern” factor has saved the attendance for at least one more year...
