    Cotton penalty was completely witless, I have never seen a 5 minute major called for interference, O'Neil went down like an EU footballer and stayed down until they called the major, but he did not miss a shift. Still a bad penalty to take and Greco doesn't have that much rope out there. When Giles comes back either he or Walker are sitting. I like Greco, he has a great motor but he doesn't have the skill to be making those mistakes and stay on the ice. Providence is a tough team, nothing flashy, just a tough gritty hockey bunch. I like Warren, he impressed me last night, good moves, good handle he could be very good for us. Newhook and Boldy looked good, lot of promise, need someone on that line that can get them the puck.

    Power Play is powerless and bad habits of the past few years continues with bad turnovers and poor decisions with the puck.
    Martin has full authority to fire any coach. No way he would have accepted the job if he did not have full authority over coaches. Daz had a winning record last year and was rewarded with a raise and extension. MJ believes that BC is near their ceiling, maybe an 8-9 win season every 5 years, but 7 is a realistic ceiling according to MJ.

    Go Eagles!

    Jeff Cox hinted at major decommit news in Hockey East but I am not a subscriber so have no idea who it's about

    It's how York is going after a current Merrimack recruit - Alex Jefferies, who is playing prep at the Gunnery. BC is said to being offering a full ride in hopes to get him to decommit from Merrimack and come to BC. Not the classiest look - but it happens in recruiting.

    Happens all the time, even to BC. Cam York comes to mind.

    what Cox said after -

    'A sign of the times...3 Hockey East schools have committed 3 or more players since May 15th who are another school's de-commits. There are no rules against it. This isn't meant to be incendiary, but it just shows where the state of college hockey recruiting is right now.'

    Yep.

    And I won't pretend to know every situation but at one time Cam York, Patrick Moynihan, TJ Walsh and Ryan Siedem were all BC recruits. I am pretty sure they never intended to lose at least York and Moynihan. Maybe all four.

    Heisenberg already has him de-committed from Merrimack. I know Heisenberg sometimes off or slow to the party on things but there's a lot of times where he's first to it. Who knows at this point and if he actually commits, I'll wait until he's on campus to believe it nowadays. Even then it doesn't always matter with the CHL.

    Back to the team, FWIW, I think they are vastly more talented and will compete this year. The schedule has been really challenging to start the year and I think it'll pay dividends when they get further into Hockey East. I thought they out played Providence for the first period and half then once Providence broke through, it kind of fell apart. I keep waiting for Newhook and Boldy to click but the talent is definitely there with both of them. I didn't know Helleson would be nearly as good as he has been.

    I'm hoping this UNH game will be what the doctor ordered for BC. Historically, and UNH has shown no sign of changing from this, the Mildcats (aka Skating Mother Theresas) have legitimately been a fairly clean team that plays up and down the ice. Skating and skill (not what it used to be at either program but still). Their games with BC have historically been enjoyable and typically it is hockey played the right way with very very few exceptions over the past 20 years.

    Given this team's absolute obsession with copious amounts of stupid penalties throughout the course of any given set of 60 minutes of hockey, I'm hoping this matchup will provide a template for BC to break some bad habits and set them on a course of smarter, cleaner hockey that involves more skating and less lazy stick penalties. That being said, following this up with a trip to PC, a very hard/tough team to play against, I wouldn't be shocked to see a W tonight with good behavior and then see PC's style bring out the stupidity from our Eagles again. Critical game tonight because I expect PC to drub BC again. Also would really like to see Knight bounce back and get back on track. He was abysmal last weekend.

    So Jerry isn't sure he has enough first rounders lined up? He has to mess with someone else's recruit? I guess its "do unto others, before they do unto you". Why did I think he was above that and able to win recruiting battles the first time around?

    Thatís the same way I feel. I could see pulling out all the stops for an Eichel or Kariya, but to do this for some random Merrimack recruit isnít a great look.

    I appreciate your observations Nick. i have always looked forward to these games. Usually a very wide open and fast paced game. If we are fortunate to go up by 2, your guys will find a way to wiggle back in for the win. Deeper skills find a way to win most of the time, but not always. I'm sorry it is on NESN and you are glad. Will even hurt our attendance!

    Times have changed. Adapt or die.

    Quite true. Usually the rules are changed so that we have fewer options and more is forbidden. This seems to be exactly the opposite. I wonder what caused the decommits from BC. It seems like a lot. These kids should have thanked their lucky start. Is it primarily questions over how long Mr. York will be there to run his finishing school? Is there a solid succession plan?

    Hustko in street clothes tonight. Without him the 1st line loses a whole lot. 0-0 after 2, they are dominating but can't quite make the finishing pass.

    You must be new to college hockey. BC themselves have had recruits "stolen" from them. Don't be a fool.

    Team will go absolutely nowhere without Hutsko so if he's gonna be in and out of the lineup all year it's gonna be another struggle.

    1-0 UNH in OT, nice goal but absence of scoring is killing us.
