Refs and linesmen collectively suck today. Simply brutal

Good job Eagles!
The PP goal to answer the NU goal was a thing of beauty.
Good stuff from Calnan and Gilmour today as well. Those 2 are starting to light the lamp on different lines.
On to BU and Maine next weekend.

What the hell happened to the Gophers? They looked like world beaters against us, now they can't beat anybody.

cant ask for much more from these guys sine the Minnesota game. Nothing will be easy but i like the compete level. The icing call at the end of the second period that resulted in a 2 minute 2 man advantage for NU was ridiculous

Sterlippo, right on. Supposed to wave it off at the dots and the guy basically didn't call it till the nu skater finally caught up at goal line. Refs and linesmen were bad all day starting with the jabroni who had a different shirt on.

You were also right about crowd. Not bad at all going head to head with pats.

i was surprised it was announced as 4600 or so, thought it was more. My section (MM) was, as usual, a kid fest and i think its great. Really surprised at this Yukon game vs UML

Screwed up and accidentally put "women's hockey" in the tag. Consider it a compliment.

As an aside, to someone who said something about their compete level -- I really like this team. They battle and they are easy to root for. I really hope they earn a spot in the NCAA tournament because they'll be a tough out.

A concern is how bad the PP is but glad they got one today. Santini has got to be more disciplined and not take stupid penalties. They cannot do this against BU and obviously need a strong effort by everyone on Friday to win. No game is easy for this team and UConn upsets UML.

Nice weekend, thought the Eagles played night-and-day different in terms of quality Friday into Saturday. Conte was also a pleasant visit, my first time there. BC fans were courteous and a joy to talk to during intermission. Hopefully the next meeting between the teams will go differently ;)

One question I meant to ask someone at today's game- seems like Demko flops around a lot in the crease. Is this normal for him, or is something different this year? His hip maybe?

I don't know what you mean by flopping around but he has surgery for his hips scheduled this off season

glad you enjoyed yourself................Conte IS a friendly venue for sure and it's inhabitants get a bad and unfair rap.......................I think Demko is pretty much like most goalies, dont think he is known for flopping around the ice like a seal :p and as far as his hip is concerned, if you find something out on your end, let us know. We've been wondering how his condition is all year but he certainly has stepped up his game in the past month. We hope it continues:)

Lol yes I am.

Burt is in Buffalo playing for Team USA for the U18 World Championship (she is under 18 lol). She'll be back next week.

Demko can flop all he wants if he keeps putting up these numbers. now has a .930 SP. GAA with him in there is almost under 2. THIS is what we expected from this team going into the year. assuming that mccoshen will be ready to go Friday. the PK shut down an on fire PP this weekend and the PP. and for as bad as the PP has been, seems like they have been popping in a few lately. you might not believe it but BC is now 16th in team offense. obviously what's missing is a real game changing forward or two but it's huge that calnan and gilmour are starting to emerge. gonna be scoring by committee. with demko as is and finally a full d lineup, they at least have a chance to make some noise.

Just some things that stand out to me of late...

Eliminating bad 'drop passes' and breakout passes to no one, which had led to odd man rushes the other way. Harvard & BU feasted on this against us.
Starting to click with the passing game. The D putting passes on the tape of a forward on the breakout. Crossing the blue line as a unit without coughing up the puck. Eliminating unforced turnovers.
Seems to be more chemistry with linemates, where teammates will be, etc.
Increase in hitting game... disrupting opponent.
Solid team D.
Overall, just playing a hell of a lot better as a team.

Still lots if work to do for the Eagles... eliminating bad penalties being near the top of the list.

Agree. Enjoyed the visit if not the score. BC folks seem to have lost some of the arrogance of past years. Not to criticize but I found arena security to be borderline stifling. Some of the ill-tempered "Red Coats" that plagued Matthews in recent years now seem to be wearing orange coats at Conte. Any of the BC regulars think it's overdone?
