Its really too bad that, although they picked a great pair of teams to show on this national NYE broadcast, both teams are missing high quality players. Personally I don't care if BU gets chosen for these games, as long as it is a game that will get people interested in college hockey. I hope that the game will be good even without those high profile players out at the WJC.

It's hockey. -nobody will be watching (except the 43 of us who care)
It's new years eve. -so 27 of the 43 who would watch are going out).
It's college hockey. -so nobody else cares.

Of the sixteen who aren't going out, four of us will be watching at my house, flipping over to the NHL channel during the breaks, to see the the WJC. Happy New Year everyone.

I'm in the same boat. Looks like there is only audio available:mad:

That was borderline unwatchable. Bad product. Honestly, how much 5 on 5 hockey was there? 33%?

When is the coaching staff going to clamp down on the penalties? Leading the nation in short-handers? I'd hope so since this BU team is short-handed 40% of the time.

Also...Ruikka is a traffic cone and Notre Dame dives.

Other than that is was OK.

Happy New Year.

Yea....., making NCAAs is going to be tough with this team. Uh ohhh. Might be the beginning of a bad losing streak.

Might just be Jeff Jackson. Seriously...what's Parker's record against him? 2-22?

Looked really disjointed and out of sync much of the time.... guess that was expected to some extent. Faceoffs were an issue without a doubt. I didn't see the statistic but I'd be surprised if we won 25% of them. That being said, we did have some moments where we were moving the puck. Gonna be a work in progress for a while til we find our stride. Interested to see if the lines stay the same.

I imagine it will be based on the result of his case. He can't very well play in the NHL if he's in jail can he. Though I would bet he will be in the Islander's system come September.

I will go out on a limb :rolleyes: and say that when the facts come out Trivino will most definitely not be in jail although his parents will be out a lot of $$$'s for legal fees.

Did anyone listen to the pregame on the radio? I would like to hear how (and if) Bernie Corbett addressed what has gone on over the past four weeks. Either with Coach Parker or with Tom Ryan.

If you take a look at the story in the freep blog, it says down low in the article that the RA's story about opening the door being a BU policy is total hogwash, there is no such policy that an RA has to open their door every time someone knocks, especially if they fear for their safety. So how one can "break and enter" when they knock on a door and the person willingly opens the door is a bit of a stretch to figure out. I wouldn't be shocked if a lot of charges are dismissed, he pleads to some minor misdemeanor charge, does some community service, and everyone moves on.

Notre Dame is in for a tough game.

Good call.

I was actually wondering the same thing. Does anyone associated with BU media ever plan on asking Parker about Charlie Coyle?

Freep reporters did an article yesterday on the blog.

Tough one to watch indeed. I for one was commenting to (my dog) that we take far too many penalties. Until/unless we suddenly find guys who gain a scoring touch we will have to win games with great defense and goaltending.

As for the broadcast, the PBP guy commented on Kevin Gilroy being the brother of Matt Gilroy who "plays for the Rangers." I liked Eddie O's color commentary and pointing out that some ND goals were the result of second chances where the forwards and D did not step up to clear.

Let's see how we do this weekend when hopefully we will get back into a rythym.

Nice rink and the balcony was something BU wanted for Agganis as if to replicate the Boston Arena where there are some great spots to watch a game
