Lots of penalties in this one. BU is dominating even strength play but I'll be much happier when they can score a goal or two. Rollheiser not being tested much

They mentioned the troubles in brief.

It was mentioned in the pre-game when they were showing the players walking out on the ice. Ken Hodge asked Jack about the "tough week" and how it affected the kids focus. He said the only time the players were smiling this week is when they were on the ice.

Thanks for the correction. My daughter has a big sleepover going on, so it's hard to hear. :o

Just meant that I think he normally knows what he wants to say and says it candidly, even if it makes some people cringe. (For example if he calls a player out in the media, people cringe and criticize him for it, but he is usually spot on.)

His comment about saying the culture probably can't change seems very odd and in stark contrast to his interviews he gave to the globe earlier in the week and also to his interview with Fed League that same day.... to me it seemed unsure of himself and grasping for something to say, which seems very unlike Jack.

You know, this team has lost 3 of its best skaters this year, to the Q and criminality. They are still near the top of the PWR and HE. They are now playing a dominating road game (against an admittedly bad) league opponent. Two thoughts:

- How good could this team have been minus w/o the criminality?

- I wish I could enjoy this team's grit, but it is hard to enjoy the play on the ice with all that has happened off of it.

And they are FINE. Nothing but yoga, tennis, and sun, every day. Chicka-wah! :p

No kidding! And, fortunately, it's BU 5 Vermont 0 in the third, so I can feel generous. "Ah, they're all singing together. How sweet!"

With all the parity in College Hockey right now- this could've easily been a Frozen Four year. Look at BC. I think any BC fan will tell you that their team this year is somewhat underwhelming roster-wise compared to years past yet they are probably the current favorites for the #1 seed and the national title.

Who is to say it still can't?

I'm not saying it can't. I'm trying to say that the expectations have changed. If they it make it to the FF, we'd all be stunned/surprised/ecstatic. Whereas if we had the entire team in tact, I think they could've played well enough to the extent that anything less than a FF would be a disappointment. I mean this is all hypothetical - just my personal views.

It's going to happen. And you're going to go through BC in Worcester to do it too. :mad::eek:

Great win, even if it was Vermont. Nice to see the boys bounce back well and have some good news here. Lots of smiling (relieved?) faces at the end.

The kids who (possibly) embarrassed the team "off the ice" are no longer on it. Enjoy the good hockey played by the kids who are earning their scholarships, not squandering them. No shame in that.

Oh, they most certainly already embarrassed the team/school regardless of what happens down the line, but I understand your point.

BC finished fourth in Hockey East and won a national championship a few years ago. Proving almost anything is possible, if you get hot and get great goaltending at the right time.

There is no favorite this year.
