Cant say I'm surprised. Going into the year I thought they would end up where they did tonight, however it is a bit of a let down after expectations were exceeded in my opinion up until about a month ago. I definitely think the team performs better in front of Wall though.

I said they SPECULATED. They have a right to their opinion. That's all. They wondered if starting Hernberg caused a problem in the UML locker room.

Sorry, I forgot. There's no free speech in this country anymore unless the speech police approve.

Thank you to the seniors for four great years. The best of luck in the future.

I didn't get a good look at the hit as I sit on the penalty box side. It's too bad the game had to end that way. I'm sure the league will take a look at it.I saw the hit from probably the perfect angle. The BU player's face was completely surprised- no idea it was coming. Bush league hit. Glad it resulted in a suspension. NO reason for that BS. Ever. I didn't really see the guy who was hit doing anything to be an irritant before that. If it was #15 I could have understood. He was a hack - at least one of our guys is not OK d/t what he did that was after the whistle and unprovoked. There were a few interesting hits on him tonight when we had the momentary non-somulent moment (any other night I think both teams could have had a zipcode in the box).

I wouldn't expect a lot of penalties today unless the game itself gets out of hand. Refs won't call a lot.It was out of hand but they swallowed the whistle for both sides.


Don’t know anything definite but there was speculation on BU radio that the decision to not start Wall might have caused a little dissension in the locker room. As the old saying goes, “if you have two goalies (or quarterbacks) — you have none”....

The first BU goal was a beautiful play that Corey Price wouldn’t have stopped. But the next two Hernberg sort of froze on. Just my opinion.He didn't seem to find the puck well at all.


What do you mean facts? I said they SPECULATED. They have a right to their opinion. That's all. They wondered if starting Hernberg caused a problem in the UML locker room.

Bernie has been doing the games for 40 some-odd years. He's one of the most respected college broadcasters in the country. It's not like he's some 20 year-old coming out of left field.

(I'm sorry I said anything...jeez)He might not be 20 but that is really odd to say. No idea why he'd say it. There hasn't been any rumbling in the locker room about it. Many teams rotate goalies. In the past we've had 2 goalies rotate even thru the playoffs. Both have played well in spurts and both have had team play well in front of them. (or not- they have not played at all for both of them too)

Well watching today's mess looked like it was the red army team playing a slow footed bunch of grinders but I loved the.hitting need more skill and speed hope next wave has a couple of them

Well I can't speak for him but I think he may have been going on having watched Wall for a couple of years. I can't go back and look at stats, but I assume he has been good against BU so I'm sure they were surprised. As I said, rotation or no, sometimes you have to go with your gut.

They both had a patch where they were very good and not so much.

First off, thank you to the seniors. Been a pleasure watching you play these past 4 years.

I went to all 3 games and it was clear to me that the better team won. A majority of the time BU out-hustled, out-hit, and simply out-played UML. By mid way through the 2nd period yesterday UML look exhausted and could not keep up with the speedy Terriers. Got a little life back when they scored in the third, but the adrenaline only lasted a few minutes.

Hats off to the Terriers, Also hats off to the Riverhawks. While always disappointing to end the season without making it to the Garden, you exceeded most people's expectations and the future is bright. Thanks again to the seniors and wish you all the best health and happiness in your future endeavors.

I also didn't understand why Wall didn't start. I fully expected to see him in net when I walked in, and when I saw Hernberg, I saw the end of our season immediately. And it's nothing against Chris, but Wall is the one I personally want to see when a game means something.

We came out flat and BU came out flying. You fight all season, and one of the major goals to fight for is ... getting home-ice in the playoffs. And for the second straight season, we blew that. As someone else noted, BU was the more talented team. But you know what, when you look back over the past few years, we've always been the less-talented team. But we've had more heart, and more we GAF. That was missing last year. That was missing most of this year.

For the first time in a while, I'm looking forward to a freshman class of forwards. While Bazin has done a great job of coaching up the kids, it wouldn't have hurt if he went out and recruited some more talented players. Grinders are great, but at some point ... you need f'in talent. There were a couple of walk-ons playing last night in a deciding game. That really shouldn't happen.

And yes, I'm upset, so don't mind me.

That's what they "speculated." And IMO, being at the game, Wall is clearly the better goalie, rotation or no. Not saying it would have made the difference, because you play differently with a 3-0 lead. Who's to say that if he started BU wouldn't have come out with the same strong start? So I'm not at all saying because Wall shut them out that they "would have" won. But I have to say that I was surprised to see Hernberg.

Just not sure how they would have any idea.

Don't be thick. This is free speech. The announcer said what he wanted. You said what you wanted. I said what I wanted. Just because you don't like what I said doesn't mean there's "speech police". Grow up.

THEY DIDN'T KNOW. They were SPECULATING!!!!!!!! What doesn't everybody understand about that word? Would you like it better if I said "guessing?" It's basically what UMLFan just said...they were surprised that Wall wasn't starting the biggest game of the year, so they openly "wondered" if there was an undercurrent of doubt, disagreement, whatever in the locker room. If I'm playing in the biggest game of the year and they put the "other guy" in net, I might react the same way. They don't have to KNOW. It was a comment based upon their surprise when they saw the lineup.

I don't think it made a difference who was in goal. BU was obviously a better team. Way faster and way more confident. They zipped their passes on the ice tape to tape all night, especially around the perimeter in our end while our passes were wobbly, weak and often to no one. BU abruptly pulled the trigger all night long while we mailed them letters informing them we were finally gonna shoot.

That's a pretty serious thing to speculate about without any evidence whatsoever. You are basically saying a coach lost his locker room.

This is exactly what I'm talking about when I mention free speech. Why is it "serious?" Are the players listening to the broadcast (on the BU station)? It doesn't matter anyway...the world is going to end in 12 years...(but apparently THAT'S not "serious" if the "right" person says it).
