Outside DCU Center, when UMD seniors walked out to greet teammates and families, BC and UMD players and families broke into applause.....

I hope y'all are embarrassed at being perfect all the time :mad: :D

Were you there in a BU jersey mookie? Saw several walking around.

BTW: RT @nateewell: Tommy Cross thanks the media for covering college hockey; last time I heard that was Ryan Shannon in this same room in '05.

:D

Me too. Flights are $600+.

We are so flipping spoiled. I'm just taking a step back and thinking: 10 FF's in 15 years. That blows my mind.

It's so tempting, I'll have to think about it. Good seeing you again and good luck with the family addition :)

Playing around on Kayak, I can get $400 by arriving the day before and leaving the day after the championship.

I saw on the USCHO write up that Parker Milner was named the region's Most Outstanding Player-- deservingly so. Who else made the All-Regional Team? I have to think Patrick Wey, Chris Kreider and Johnny Gaudreau would all be good candidates.

This team has far and away exceeded my expectations. It's hard to believe all they've accomplished this year already. What an unbelievable coaching job. Next time I won't be accepting a trip out to Detroit for Red Sox opening day when the team is slumping. I simply didn't expect them to make this type of run. I should have known better. Shame on me.

Play like they did this weekend and they will be tough to beat in Tampa. What a year. They've done everything last year's stacked team did and now they have a chance to tie the score with a couple schools...

I agree JD, they've done more than I'd expected after losing some very good players from last year. IMO they've overachieved and JY has done one of his best coaching jobs this year after their mid season slump. They have a very good group of seniors and juniors leading this BC team. Milner has really been solid during this streak.

Parker Milner
I don't know how Jerry does it, but WOW. The class of the East and really the country. Congrats
Parker Milner is a WOW also, unreal turnaround

So far, a huge note of thanks has to go to Maine, which sent the Eagles down the turnpike January 21 with two straight losses and their tails between their legs.

Congrats to BC....very impressive win yesterday. Milner's on fire right now. Might as well take down that other Minnesodda team while you're at it. Good luck in the frozen four. At least we have 1 competitive team in HE. ;)

Congrats. Every year since 2000 I'm so impressed with what BC does in the latter 2/3rds of the season.

It's incredible. I was almost foolish enough to think the BC squad wasn't going to be strong w/o Jimmy Hayes and Cam Atkinson.

It was looking pretty good for the rest of HE when you were 14-10...then Jerry and co did what they do. Just win. 17 in a row? Milner goes from shaky at best to all-world?

You have the best program in college hockey and they'll be a fifth star on the backs of the BC jerseys next season.

Enjoy this...it can't last forever, can it?

Boston Coll. is about as business like as possible. They were the only team of the four FF teams to not put on "championship" hats and glom for the camera like they won something this weekend. They shook hands, got off the ice like they just beat Providence in January. I cant remember a team as focused as this one. They obviously have great on and off ice leadership and I expect them to win again in two weeks. Great job by Milner, too.

Tommy is an excellent captain.

Thanks for the kind words. It won't last forever, but the ride is great. The kids love playing for Jerry and they respond to the teaching they receive. Especially Milner.

Not only those two... How about Gibbons, who was nasty all-around, and John Muse the 2-national title winning goaltender? Throw in Whitney and you have some serious departures. It's absurd they were able to win 31 games this year losing that even though they do reload continually. But it was a down year for college hockey which helped some I think.
