BC wins Hockey East Game 1

BC needed a big game from Woll to win Game 1 of the Hockey East Tournament Game 1. The sophomore shutout Merrimack with 37 saves. BC couldn't generate much offense, but their one goal was enough. Game 2 is Saturday.

They need to win tonight and in the next round to make the NCAA tournament. If they lose tonight then they will need to make it to the finals of this tournament to make the NCAA. They are literally on the bubble based on pairwise.

True that. Tied for 16th with Northern Michigan. And if Northeastern or Providence are upset (unlikely, as both won last night), beating their opponent wouldn't help as much in the PairWise. It's all a moot point if the Eagles win the tournament since we'd get the automatic bid. All in all, not too bad for a team with 6 freshmen and 12 sophomores. Let's hope we don't have a lot of sophomores leaving early. Again.

We are a little lucky because Bowling Green is playing Northern Michigan and North Dakota is playing Omaha, all four of these teams are direct competition for the last 1-3 spots depending on auto bids. Atlantic Hockey, will get one freebee. The others should have tourney winners already in the tourney, unless its....well BU or BC, Don't sleep on BU either. A BC-BU semi final could decide that last bid, although BU has a few more teams to catch. That BU-BC would be fun! It would be great to get these kids in the tourney for the experience. But first things first. Just beat Merrimack this evening and keep climbing in the pairwise.

Does anyone know why the radio broadcasts of these HE playoff games have been taken down by BC?

I emailed SIDEARM Showcae, the provider, and they claim it was BC's choice not to have them broadcast!!

If you are outside the Boston area, you are out of luck. Last night's game was not on WatchESPN or on Radio via SIDEARM Showcase.

This lack of broadcast does not keep up fan support.

As far back as I can recall, the Hockey East playoff games have been broadcast differently than typical BC home games.
