The last game hasn't gotten any love, so here is a thread for it.

Thanks for starting a thread. Not sure why nobody created one before, because it shapes up to be a good game. I'd expect a low-scoring contest, but then I wasn't expecting BU to play a 7-8 game last year, so who knows.

Agree, expect this to be a good game. Even though these two teams don't often play each other, lots of former team mates on each side of the puck in this one.

I'm looking forward to seeing Clarkson play, as I can't remember when I saw them last, and they have some dynamic players. Hopefully BC - Harvard solve their problems in regulation!

Lots of talent on both teams - should be a really good game. Both teams have top notch goaltenders and great offensive threats so it'll be interesting to see if this is a defensive battle or a more high scoring affair. I think key for BU is to stop taking so many darn penalties. We were lucky not to get burned against NU but not sure the same will be said against Clarkson. Good luck to both teams.

I think ditto for Clarkson as far as taking penalties. If BU can stop Rattray and Mercer, I think Clarkson will be in trouble. Clarkson only skates 3 full lines so as the game wears on, in the third period they may have difficulty keeping up with BU. Howe has to play great in goal.

I am hoping that the women can solve the post season jinx that has haunted the men's program when playing BU. I will definitely be watching this one tomorrow at 3PM. LGT LGT LGT.

Clarkson has a very good PP.

If there is one thing I can't stand, it is that Train Horn at Clarkson. Not cause I detest the team, but cause it is so fricken loud, it could pop your ears out. As soon as Clarkson scores a goal at Cheel. my first reaction is to cover my ears. First time I heard that thing, almost had a heart attack. If you are at the end where the band is, it blows you out of your seat.

The first time I heard it, apart from being loud, I thought it was great...goes perfectly with the "last train" analogy.

Clarkson factoid:

All the players except one is from Canada including the two co-head coaches. The one player who is not is from Little Canada, Mn. (which is a suburb of St. Paul).

What are the odds of that?

Too bad the game is being played at Walter Brown. :(

WHOOOOOOOOOOOO WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :)

So with Cornell and Harvard losing, the ECAC Banner is being carried by Clarkson and they are losing 1-0 after 1. The difference so far in the first 2 games, GOALTENDING. Maschemayer's five hole and Slobodnick's penchant for rebounds were no match for the solid goaltending from the BC and Mercyhurst goalies.

Must be a brown out in Baston or they're using those curly light bulbs.

Howe's slides look really slow...could cost her. It might have already on Kohanchuk's goal but without instant replays..not sure.

Why does this game feel like a yawner?

2 goals for BU in 26 seconds. That game changed quickly.

4-1 BU with 10:12 to play.



Clarkson answered in 12 seconds, 4-2 BU.

Crazy 38 seconds.

Congrats to BU and good luck in the Frozen Four Womens Division.

Glad a game finally broke out. Bantam level error by Howe in not guarding the post made the difference.
