A little off topic, but does anybody know if buying the b2 feed for tomorrow's game is worth it? I know tonight's game is on NESN, jw about tomorrow's game and maybe Sunday.

LOL on your thread title. So glad it's your week to watch him;)

Good Luck to BU this weekend

Happily (for us, sadly for you) he still seems more interested in your team this week.

Some people may be interested in this. My blog interviewed Merrimack coach Mark Dennehy and asked him some questions about the playoff series. We have talked with him before and always seems willing to help out Merrimack alums.

I would suggest if possible avoid it. I've only used it once or twice but pretty much every game someone is on warriorrinkrat.com's live blog complaining about it not working.

I bought the b2 feed of last year's quarterfinal game 2 and it was not worth it. But that's because we lost 6-3. Regarding the feed itself, though, I do recall one or two instances where I had to reload it because it lost connection.

BU completely outplayed Merrimack last night but I am disppointed with BU's first two goals. The first goal was an obvious breakaway after a BU played knocked over Merrimack's defensemen.

BU's second goal was a scrum in front of the net and there was a clear cross-check yet still no call. I wish I got the player's name as this post would have made more sense.:p

that was an obvious pick at center ice by Zach.... but throughout the game MC was allowed to get away with penalties at will. it was only fair that BU was allowed too as well. :p

Fun game to watch last night. Good work 'Mack. I gotta say I loved the tactic they used to keep BUs offense down to 4 men. Really ballsy, but it was fun to watch!

I just like to see a coach trying something new and different.

Never mind that Bonino was hauled down 10 different ways while wrapping around the back of the net, or that Mack had a sizeable advantage in total powerplays. You're barking up the wrong tree if you're complaining about officiating last night.

Disappointed in the result, but a fun game to watch. Random thoughts: No complaints about the refs. BU turned up the "physicality" in the 2nd period, and won virtually all the battles on the boards. Looked up to see a 2 on none for BU's 1st goal...didn't see the pick, but mookie said it was (that's good enough for me) and now I know why Ross was fuming.
BU penalty kill was excellent, quick puck movement out of the zone. MC's lack of faceoff wins was glaring.
I thought Vellaca was far and away MC's best offensive player last night, and Cannatta was very solid. For BU, very impressed with Warchofsky and Saponari.
The "hanger" strategy worked for MC's 1st goal, but I though BU managed to defend it pretty well otherwise.
Hope MC can extend the series tonight.

Or the time Gryba got into that mix with that Merrimack thug, who hit him in the face 5 times, but they both got roughing AND Gryba got an instigator.

Or the time where Connolly got hit in the head and got blindsided and the blind refs missed it.

If anything the officiating benefited the less skilled team. The first 10 minutes of the game was Merrimack exhibiting just about every penalty in the book and the Hansen Wonder Twins stunk it up letting it go.

Huh?? Is this the Gryba that BU fans love to tout as a tough guy? Gryba wasn't involved in the initial play and then came up and got into Bigos' face. I give him credit for starting with a guy 20 pounds heavier than he is but to refer to the other guy as a thug?? Maybe Bigos will be the career leader in PIM's at Merrimack someday just like Gryba is at BU.

The Connolly hit looked like it was a bit of retaliation. Could have been called, just like the Cohen hit on Ross to spring the breakaway on the first BU goal. Of course, nobody on the BU side is complaining about that missed call.

Now it's my time to say huh???? Do you mean the hit on Connolly or by Connolly? The hit by Connolly was called. The hit on him was not and TBA just complained about it. So I don't know why you said no one on the BU side was was complaining about it. And if you want more of us to complain about it, add me to that list. Because it should have been called. As should the slash on Perreira that started that whole skirmish where Gryba got thos penalties.

Was talking about this last night with some people, but if there was fighting in college hockey, are there any two guys you'd like to see go at it more than Gryba and Bigos? That's a big time heavyweight bout right there.

Or the time where Connolly got hit in the head and got blindsided and the blind refs missed it. Or the time the blind refs missed the blatant pick by Cohen on Ross which led directly to a 2 on none breakaway goal by Saponari? (see mookie post) And I agree, Bonino got tripped/hooked/hauled down coming around the net before the tying goal.

Poor Gryba. I guess the instigator penalty means he won't win the HE sportsmanship award this year? There really wasn't much of a "mix", until he got into Bigos' face. There was an absolutely bogus cross check call on BU (when Bigos was slding the puck back to Cannatta) but there was an obvious make-up call on MC not long after. Again, it happens, no complaint from me.

Yes, the refs miss calls, both ways, imagine that. Get over it. BU won, MC lost, new game tonight.

Scarlet, WRD357 was referencing that none of the BU posters are commenting about the uncalled penalty on the pick play by Cohen. Why would they complain, it led directly to a BU goal?

There was actually a delayed penalty coming on that if Saponari hadn't scored.

We need to get over it? It was a Merrimack fan that started this discussion on bad calls, so I find this statement amuuuuuuuusing.

Ah, OK. It did't read like that. Thanks for the clarification.

any mack fan complaining about officiating should read the powerplay section of the boxscore then read the part where you had two pps in the 3rd after we went up 3-2..you got the calls and had your chances.
