    Boston University vs Northeastern 3/5 and 6

    As the Jay-Z song says ad nauseam, "on to the next one" something these teams surely want to do after combining for a whopping 1 point last weekend.

    For both teams the Hockey East Tournament Title is almost certainly the only possible path to the NCAA's so this weekend is really just for jostling for seeding and possibly home ice for the quarterfinals.

    Have at it...

    We need 4 pts.. we seldom get what we need
    We need 4 pts.. i think we'll manage 2
    We need 4 pts.. it'll head to splitsville regardless
    We need 4.. but we'll share two with you..
    We need 4 pts.. but who's counting

    Did i mention, we need 4 pts

    Let's be honest. At least in the context of saying they have to win it all, it's better than a geeky fanboy running scenarios all day and posting about how great it is that BU has a 1/2,231,095 chance of making the NCAAs as an at large team. I'm sure we'll get a post or two like that anyway, right up until the end.

Trivino has never been one of those players. Even outside of the rink, he'll say hi and is plenty of friendly, but has never been even close to saying or doing anything inappropriate.

    Both primary goaltenders looked less than stellar for their respective teams this wknd. While Millan was pulled in Friday's gm.. Rawlings gave up a very soft goal in Saturday's gm as well.

    I think they'll both play some of their best, this wknd -especially at home. It'll be tough (not impossible), for either team to steal one on the road.

    Re: Boston University vs Northeastern 3/5 and 6

    I think much like last year, bu does enough the last weekend of the regular season to make sure they end up in front of NU by one place in the standings. bu ends up 4th, NU ends up 5th, and off we go to face each other at least two more times.

    Funny though, if either team gets swept, they could be out of the playoffs depending on how the other games go.

    I haven't run the numbers, but since it appears that in order for either of these teams to get home ice they would have to take 3 or 4 points this weekend, I don't see how the team who takes only 1 or 0 points can end up ahead of UVM and UML, since they are also playing each other.

    I didnt look at it closely before, but I guess not.

    both teams could still get knocked out though if swept.

    To get home ice, BU must either:

    1. Sweep Northeastern (and end the regular season with 28 points) and there is no sweep in Lowell-Vermont series, either way.

    2. Take 3 of 4 points vs. Northeastern (and end the regular season with 27 points) and there is a split in the Lowell-Vermont series.

    Bottom line is BU cannot lose on Friday if they want any chance at home ice.

    Re: Boston University vs Northeastern 3/5 and 6

    Should be a fun one this weekend, don't expect the double ties again, though NU will take that because of the tiebreaker....

    NU and BU can't play each other in the first round the way the points will fall in place...

    Should be fun hockey indeed.. but unless I'm mistaken BU and NU is ending spring break... expecting less than stellar atmospheres from these two usually very present student sections.

    It hasn't taken me long to realize, everybody here knows a lot more than me about college hockey...

    Our spring break is ending, so it remains to be seen if a lot of students come back early. Luckily for us, there are a lot of co-op students still on campus.

    That's good. I was worried they'd have to shut down Quizno's over break.

    I'm expecting the worst for the student crowd size on saturday...I think most of the student body will be staggering back Sunday afternoon and evening. The casual NU sports can could care less about shortening their break to catch this matchup, which is unfortunate because it should be an awesome two games.

    yeah our students won't be totally nonexistent since the dorms are open friday night, but few to none of ours will be at matthews saturday since they close saturday morning. i saw a few just now at agganis picking up tickets for the home game friday so there might be a section or two full. i saw the picture of the crowd before the nu-unh game at matthews on friday of last week, so would the crowd might be similar/less than that? those balcony seats in the endzone were totally vacant in quite a few spots, and it wasnt like it was a merrimack game.

    i thought i put a stake in this two weeks ago when i showed the best they could get to was 13th.... and that had to go assuming nobody else ahead of them or around them plays any games. (and this was before the 1-3-0 run)

    I'd be fine if Jack and Cro agreed on a split this weekend beforehand. Just saying.


    Although I'll go on the record for liking our chances to get more than 2 points. We've played well save one night at bc, we deserved 4 points last weekend (look we outplayed unh both nights, saw both games, we deserved 4). I'll be rooting for the huskies first and then the black bears, bu fans should be rooting for the black bears as well.
