Not our night

It wasn't supposed to be like this. We were supposed to build on our momentum, beat BU and send Jack Parker into retirement. It was going well. BC was up 2-0 and putting the pressure on. Then things all fell apart. BU tied the game quickly and then went ahead and won 5-2. BC really hurt itself with dumb penalties. This leaves us out of the Hockey East Tournament. Let's hope everyone regroups for the NCAAs.

The BC Women will break through at the Frozen Four...just not this year. They lost to Minnesota in OT. It is a tough pill to swallow, but it doesn't dampen another strong season.

The men's game was bizarre. The first period was the best period BC has played in 2013, if not the season with great speed, aggressive and physical defense and just total domination. But then it all fell apart in about three minutes with two big blue line mistakes (Linell's whiff on both the puck and the man in the offensive zone and Wey's ditto at the defensive line). A couple of crappy whistles -- no way Johnny's was a fiver, and Matheson's "trip" was actually the BU guy tripping over Milner's stick after Milner made the save. BU only got one goal during those, but it was 7 minutes of defense-only for BC in the third and it turned the game.

No matter. BC still goes to the NCAA tourney. BU may play it's way in tomorrow, damn it. Go Riverhawks!

Turn the game off early, ATL? I don't blame you but it ended up being 6-3.
