Man, Ruck is really awful this year. What the hell happened? Why hasn't he been benched yet?

Nothing he could have done on the 5th goal. NU was changing lines and an awful clear was caught at the blue line. Recipe for failure

3-1 lead.. bit of undisciplined play.. then goalie continues to avg. giving up 5 goals/gm.. all she wrote. Congrats to UML.

Well....if that wasn't snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, I don't know what is. I'm not finding as much fault with Ruck as I am with the porous defense, which hung the kid out to dry on more than one occasion. Light at the end of the tunnel (maybe): Matt Filipe.

The silver lining is that there is nothing to complain about with goal tending tonight. Ryan Ruck had a solid game. Young defensemen in front of him - not so much. Jeremy Davies with two gaffes leading directly to goals. Tough nights for a few others too. Eric Williams on ice for 4, Ryan Shea 3, Kurker 3, Collier 4, Filipe 3. Lowell came back hard after a very slow first period. Lowell blew a 3-1 lead last week and NU did it tonight. The games weren't boring, that's for sure!

the other 3 Beanpot schools took care of business tonight except us. Not to sound pessimistic but HU will pick apart both, our D & Ruck, come Monday. Just being realistic.. & hole i am proven wrong but I doubt it.

Lowell was the better team 5 on 5 and deserved to win. The BU boys were absolutely brutal once again. The 4th line wasn't much better. I felt it was always gonna be tough to win this one after it became clear the officials put the whistles away. They just didn't generate enough sustained attack 5 on 5. The Harvard matchup will feature statically the two best power plays in the country which is something I never thought I'd say.

just watched again Lowell's 3-2 goal & 4-3 goal..
as much as i'd like to 'blame' the D.. & there is plenty to go around.. that is just absolute horrendous goaltending on both those goals. Ruck has had an awful week.

Hopefully he can shake it off & get ready, come out sharper Monday (fingers crossed).

Unfortunately, I don't think he played poorly by his standards, that's just who he is. Primeau can't get here soon enough. We probably have to score 5 on Monday to have a realistic chance to win, which is an awful way to go into a hockey game.

...NU still needs better defense and goaltending than it has been getting...

It's bad manners to quote oneself but...

Gave into the urge after a few cold ones and bought tickets for Monday. Pretty crazy that we have a chance to reach the final for the 6th time in 9 years.

We're not the only ones who need score 4, 5, goals & its not enough.. tonight's Bruins gm was a fitting reminder..

Here's hoping for some sound goaltending & more, Monday..
Go Huskies! :)
