The silver lining is that BC was still a tournament team during a transition year. As much as casual fans assume that the team can often just turn it on, not winning the Beanpot or Hockey East Tournament served as a warning sign. BC didn't have enough to hang with Denver as the Pioneers won 5-2.
BC finished the season 21-14-3. Even with the loss, the guys and Jerry York still deserve our thanks for another very good season.
