A good one. I follow McMahon the most for news. Kid needs to give it up.

Oh it's possible when you look at the bottom 6 of the roster.

All things considered, we knew the bottom 6 would be meh. We knew the forwards like Cangelosi and Fitzgerald will need time to develop. The biggest thing for me was the infuriating game from #5 (again) and the flopping around of Demko allowing easy goals. For a team built from the net out, there wasn't much to be impressed with from that group. Hanifin does look good though.

Taking a closer look at the goals given up, nothing stood out as egregious from Demko, but nothing spectacular either. If they play "defense" like they did the other night, Demko won't matter. Guys in front of him need to get their act together first.


Whoever of you knows The Kid personally, get him the eff under control, he's making BC look pathetic.

LOL. As far as I know, haven't seen anyone on here say that they know him personally. And no, he's not making "BC" look pathetic. He's making himself look pathetic. Just like some of the BU fools on twitter. Twitter sucks.


Tweeted that Eichel was being accused of rape, deleted it minutes later and claimed his account was "jacked."

maybe micheletto accused eichel of rape after that 3rd period


A good one.

Of course he is, for obvious reasons...duh


Kid needs to give it up.

Be a little more specific here, give what up? And if you come back with "tweeting anything about BU", i would completely agree. as a "BC" blogger, he should just stick to that.

Sheds some light on why BC is in this game. Hills calls York the most respected coach in college hockey. And also a blurb about how RIT will be at BC next season for a game.

only RIT but nice response in a hostile environment. always good when you can play in front of 10,000+. four goals from dmen...good sign. gonna need more of that. lowell beat and tied quinnipiac this weekend, so maybe they are better than we thought anyway. time will tell, but bazin is a very good coach, so i'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

beat CC!

yes, much better. Lowell is tough, they aren't going away any time soon. Bazin has built a solid program

Eagles were the much faster and skilled team, although RIT seemed to step up their speed and play in the third period.
BC controlled play for long stretches in the RIT zone in the first but never managed to set up any quality chances.
Second period was a different story as the Eagles managed to find the open man for quality goals.
Third period RIT cam out flying and scored a minute in on a BC defensive turnover caused by RIT pressure. The Eagles responded well, not allowing the Tigers to gain any momentum by answering both RIT goals in the period with a goal of their own.

Gaudreau scratch... Silk is off injured reserve. I can see maybe a rotation with Straight and Gaudreau until a winner emerges?

Offensively, the D is really stepping up in the offensive zone, as well as in transition. Forwards are doing a very good job covering. This is a plus, as we saw 4 goals by d-men last night. Until we see the forwards start to gel as units, I think we'll continue to see the puck dumped back to the blue line and the O quarterbacked by the D. No harm here... go with your strength.

PP... the Eagles worked very hard getting the puck to McCoshen to unload THE BOMB. They/he finally hit pay dirt with 2:30 to go. Good things can and will happen when the bomb is on net. :)

Defense... looked good breaking out of the zone pretty much all night, EXCEPT when RIT came out skating with an aggressive forecheck in the third. A forced turnover resulted in RIT's first goal. Against good teams, this is going to be a problem for the Eagles until they get it figured out. No time for hesitation in the D zone against better teams.

All in all, a win's a win. Hope to see this team improve each week, starting with CC and UMass at Conte next weekend.

Glad we won as I just checked the score. After Saturday's loss to Clemson I was afraid to check the hockey score. That was a painful loss by the football team ( But I had a good time as usual )

two HUGE drops, don't forget the one in the first period that may have helped set the tone. A game that we could have won..............so MG a scratch?? hmm, I thought with playing time he may get us 10 goals but let Straight keep piling up those minutes!!!:rolleyes:

Don't get Gaudreau either.

Nice to see Teddy put up some good numbers. Don't think anyone here ever understood why he got stapled to the bench at times over the last couple of years.

Barone was the back up again. Is Billet hurt or has Barone earned the spot?
Cam Spiro has looked good (no surprise to me... have always liked his speed & hustle). He's with Sit and Silk. Matter of time before these guys start producing, I hope.
I haven't really noticed Sanford, but he's quietly tied with Fitz with 3 points, 2nd on the team. All 3 assists came against RIT.
Looking forward to seeing tis team live this weekend.

Considering Barone played ahead of Billet in the exhibition game (Billet did play the 3rd period), it seems to me as if he has simply taken over as the backup. A bit of a head scratcher when you look at Billet's numbers last year, but then again, I'm not there every day at practice. For those who saw the exhibition, Barone really did look pretty good.

On paper, these are two games BC should win. Take care of business when you can. Every game is important, and more so for a team like this. 3-1 would look pretty good heading out to Denver.

Barone did look good in the exhibtion, agreed it is odd considering how Billet has played over the years in games but as you said we're not at practice.

Are the Denver games on the random Fox Sports channel?
