    Woof. Shut out the first night, give up a 7 spot the second night. No need to panic after two games, but this team found out last year how important these early out of conference games are. They need to turn this around quickly.

    Really is stunning considering they have had good teams in league play. York likes to play the iron but it hasn't worked out recently.

    Claw to a .500 non conference record and call it a success based on last two years. But already facing an uphill battle going to Quinnipiac and then St. Cloud comes in. Needed one of those games against Wisconsin. Very disappointing.

    I guess I can offer a critique.

    I'd say that Woll fought the puck a little on the night. As a problem, that was compounded by D who probably weren't active enough in moving their feet and in bodying up and clearing Badger F's out, plus the BC F's were getting caught high in the zone too much. To be fair, the Badger's have a very good D corp and their in-zone offense is almost entirely get it low then move it high and across for the shot while the F's all go to the net. So, BC F's were sucked high in zone in part because everyone knew that was where the puck was going every time. But your F's still got beat back to the net when the shot came in too much, which left the D outnumbered at the net when the rebounds came loose.
    In transition I don't think your F's backchecked all the way like you'd like see them, plus they got caught changing behind the play on occasion. With the new rule you can't make up half a sheet of ice on a change behind the play, so that's an adjustment everyone has to make. Probably also turned it over in transition a bit more than you'd like to see as well.

    So I'd say when it went wrong, that's what it was. Other times it went pretty well, so I would think it's not a lot of hard fixes. Plus Woll isn't going to fight the puck on very many nights I wouldn't think. The PP looked really good for so early in the season, and in general, the rush was dangerous and in zone offense applied a lot of pressure and got off some very good shots that just didn't go. Could have easily been a different result on Saturday. But it wasn't. Ha!

    The problems they’ve had in these 2 games can be fixed and this is just early season kinks.

    I agree with that. The problem is that there is a limited non-league schedule in which problems with the PWR can be fixed. That needs to start being fixed immediately.

    Perhaps it says something about the strength of Hockey East the last couple of years.

    The D has been a mess for years. Has been problem #1 since McCoshen & Santini, IMO. Even then, they were the only two 'true' defensemen. Our guys spend more time behind the opponents net than on the blue line. That causes big problems for our forwards, as well as defensively. Straighten that chit out, bare minimum, for starters. Nothing you can do now about big forwards pushing them around in the D zone, they just have to work harder.... it is what it is.

    Re: Boston College Eagles �� 2018-2019

    Anyway, remember when our boys would go West for two in October, blow out some great western programs and return home with 2 wins? Those times seem to be gone.

    SCSU and QPac are huge.

    right, how about changing it up one year and NOT go out west early, have a team come to Conte for the first weekend of the season? Same old , same old has not been working for a while now.

    Remember when BC used to forecheck the crap out of opponents and convert for scores? And the opponent rarely forechecked BC or they'd be looking at BC odd man rushes on their net? Those times seem to be gone as well. Eagles get beaten by their old game plan now.

    I did see some good forecheck turnover/conversions against New Brunswick, so I hold hope that someday this trend will turn around. Better competition... work harder.

    Now that I just got my Frozen4 tickets to Buffalo I certainly hope this team rights the ship. Prices keep climbing and I may only buy when they are local (in the northeast) now. Great seats are still available including blue line in the lower level. I got club seats around the face off circle but there are very few club seats left except close to the goals or in the ends. Demand for tickets is way down for I never came close to getting such good seats before as the best I did was low in the corners of the balcony or high up(last row or two) center ice.

    The NCAA killed a good thing. I think I paid $120 for a strip of tickets to the 1998 FF in Boston if I remember correctly.

    I likely will go to Buffalo/Toronto/Niagara Falls for this event so I splurged and got tickets yesterday as well but I certainly didn't pony up and get 4, only got 2. If my other teammates/friends want to come, they will have to scalp them (hopefully for them, less than face that I paid).

    It’s not just the NCAA, unfortunately. It seems like in the last few years Beanpot, hockey east finals, and a lot of teams are way down as well.
