Was just about to post about that.
York was on something called Perch Podcast and they mentioned how Hutsko hurt his hamstring in the Colgate game. Didn't say Cotton was banged up. In the pics I saw yesterday, Cotton appears to be fine but Hutsko was skating in a red no contact jersey. The fact he was skating is a very good sign but from listening to the podcast I got the sense he will probably be out at least this weekend. Guess we'll see.
Which would be a huge blow when you're trying to beat a team like Denver. They haven't played the toughest competition yet but still, 4-0 on the road to start the year is pretty good. Home opener for them tonight. Tall task for BC this weekend.
Saw that pic of Hutsko in the red medical jersey. Sucks. This kid canít catch a break.
Anybody know whatís going on with Giles? He hasnít been in the line up at all yet this year. Is he injured?
Broken hand, out till around Christmas.
Hey Luke, that's not what we're looking for.
Didn't see it either, just checking in on my phone
so Bucky hangs 11 on Mack in North Andover after our opener then they beat defending champs, Duluth, 6-2 tonight....... meanwhile, Colgate wins in OT at Tsongas. Third period starting, 1-0 DU
Yes those are positive developments
Iím pretty sure we just saw the worst 4 minutes in the history of BC hockey. Not surprised with a sweep given the opponent and lack of Hutsko. Shocked to see the sheer stupidity of taking a minor penalty every few minutes like clockwork over 4 games and seeing them completely unravel like this.
Hope they learn from this.
Good response from that point on at least. Disappointed they didn't get something out of this weekend but penalties absolutely killed them. Hopefully Hutsko is ready to go soon. These two games should help them in the long run.
If McPhee can't hang with those guys maybe you try McBain or Hardman
Missed the first home game, looking foward to Friday. Two close games against the a top team in their barn without one of their first liners. Would have been great to get a point but it was a good learning experience for the Freshmen, which is why JY schedules these games. Need to get after it on Friday. Can't wait.
The kid from Andover can't stop throwing interceptions in the Ivy League and the BC starter got hurt vs UL and the backup has acquitted himself reasonably well, almost pulling out a road win in relief and beating NC State. So reasonably this kid from Andover would 4th string and basically a D1 waterboy. He made the right move heading over to Brown. Education upgrade and he was never going to play here anyway. The other kid that transferred out is a walking disaster at Rutgers (0 TDs, 5 INTs, 48.3%).
Regarding this weekend's results...
- Penalties penalties penalties. A lot of stupid lazy penalties. A LOT. These two games were pretty winnable albeit in a tough environment. Maybe some lazy penalties can be attributed to lack of oxygen at altitude and not moving the feet enough? Hopefully. Pretty soon we're going to need to see some accountability. Friday was a de-facto 1-0 loss due to a PPG on a 5-min PP. Saturday, tough to figure. The game was over 4 minutes into the 2nd if we're honest but they
- I'm a big fan of Greco's but to take a penalty in a one-goal game with 2 minutes left... I mean Jesus Christ smarten up. He knew it too, you could see he knew when he sat in the box. This has been somewhat of a pattern the past few years under York as well (the penalties in the last two minutes). Can we just play smart hockey and let the skill settle the score at the end of the night? We never used to be so dumb but the last 5 years or so have been brutal with the bad penalties, etc. Do we have a sports psychologist with all this ACC money?
- I was shocked to see Knight completely unhinged there while his team disappeared for a brief stretch. It was like watching Mike Ayers in a Frozen Four without the bottle throwing and temper tantrums. Hopefully he can stand in and weather the storm while the team gets going more often than not. Needed it the other night but it didn't happen.
- Hutsko clearly is a huge cog in the machine. Duh. It showed last year how things fell into place when he got back and got hot. It showed this weekend without him again. Gotta get him back and keep him healthy.
- The first 4 games on the schedule may prove to be a real difficult stretch by the end of the season so to be 2-2 isn't terrible. Colgate and Wisconsin don't seem too shabby.
- The adversity of a road environment like this, losing Hutsko, etc... gives the coaches chances to try some things and hopefully evaluate a little more than normal so hopefully in a lot of respects this weekend pays dividends down the road to offset the season-long PWR drag from a sweep at the hands of Denver, our only NCHC opponent I believe.
- Let's start the Hockey East season off right. 5 of the next 7 are road games.
