There is truth to the fact the BU had numerous outstanding chances to score, and so Woll deserves a lot of credit. It's how the BC goals were scored, and how bad BU looked in the second period that leaves such a sour taste in my mouth. That SHG was embarrassing - Three BU guys behind the play, while the BC guys skate their butt off and get a goal.So, was that due to bad coaching or too many selfish players and no TEAM play? :rolleyes:

A thought I had regarding the way the game ended: wouldn't it make sense that if a penalty gets called in the last 2 minutes of the game the coach of the team going on the PP can elect to reset the clock to 2 minutes (or 5 minutes for a major) and play out the entire man advantage? If a team is leading and get a PP, they can decide to decline this option. It has always seemed dumb to me that players are taught to play disciplined the entire game, and then in last 30 seconds, they basically can hack, slash and hook and there is very little consequence. In a situation like last night, I assume Fitzgerald would have played it differently had these rules been in place, regardless if you thought it was a penalty or not.

I agree with the thought process but I'd prefer something like certain penalties in certain times lead to a penalty shot. An intentional delay of game would qualify. I'm not for resetting the clock arbitrarily.

Not sure i follow this logic. We'd never have any new rules.

Brass...as you stated earlier...everyone needs to stop focusing on the last 9 seconds and start focusing on the reason this team is never ready to play and can't score goals...where is all this supposed skill?..I'm not sure DQ has any clue how a team scores goals other than to open the door for Eichel and Keller....the guy he has running his PP is the worst I have ever seen making decisions with puck...so let's double shift him after the shorty and sit the best decision maker on the bench...this guys love affair with #7 is comical and leads you nowhere but a second straight one and done

And why are you posting here now? Shouldn't you be at the game?

I think a better way to look at this specific argument is, when was the last time a major sport implemented a rule change that would allow the clock to be adjusted as a direct penalty on a team, not as a corrective or secondary action. I can't think of one.

I can't think of one.Well, there's also soccer, which allows referees to play with the clock so that a team always has time to have a corner kick/free kick and the follow through action. However, I don't know if that has always been allowed and if there is an written rule about it. :p

Yeah I thought of that but had the same though as you that the clock finagling there isn't a penalty directly resulting from play. I think the penalty shot scenario would be the one to consider if the rules committee went down this road.

As someone who can't stand either school but loves college hockey, I agree with this. Much like Red Sox/Yankees, it's gotten kind of stale. Who would have thought a semifinal featuring BC/BU would be the least attended semi since '06.What is your source for this statement? I've been researching home and tournament attendance for a year now and according to the figures I have found this year's semifinal attendance is the lowest since at least 2001. I'm missing attendance figures for 1998, 2000 and 2001, but I'm guessing it is the lowest since either 1998 or definitely 1997.

How many did you see against Northeastern?One in each game (total 2)


..ND?Three in the 4-1 win, one in the 3-1 loss (total 4)


..last night?None

That's a total of six 5 on 5 goals in the last 5 games.
