I think most rational fans could give a flying **** where they are now in the polls. It's more important later when it matters, the end of the season or 2nd half when things get closer to post season time.
Nah... polls never matter. PWR matters.

Yeah, of course polls don't matter yet but they are ok for conversation's sake on places like, I dunno, a hockey forum?..

Granted it's early but with the limited HE games this year getting 4 points this weekend and sitting at 5-0-0 at the quarter mark would be huge to separate from the large middle in HE.

Think UMass will have this guy in net this weekend? http://www.uscho.com/stats/player/mid,22724/alex-wakaluk/#20132014 :eek:

Looking at the stats a little this morning:
BC is the #1 offensive team in the country, by a decent margin at 5 goals per game. 3 of top 8 scorers nationally (Gaudreau, Hayes & Arnold)
Granted small sample size but Cav has Yukon's powerplay as #1 in the country (5-15)

Thursday is a tricky game in my opinion. Random trip out to Amherst on a Thursday, coming off an 11-0 win in a glorified exhibition. UMass coming off a 9-0 loss. Something about this game has me worried. Be ready to play. Haven't had an easy go of it out there in recent years.

I agree UMass has been very tough at home lately. But I'm confident BC will not take this game for granted and play 2-way hockey for 60 minutes. I think the depth gives confidence even though Santini is out for this game. I can't believe what a dumb thing to do on Sunday when the game was won early and a major brain fart by this frosh. I'm sure the coaches had a talk with him about this and a learning experience.

I agree, not a place that we have played particularly well in the past few years and we all know what a pain in the arse they have been in the HE quarters

hey claver, you're a rangers fan, right? every time i look up, kreider is in on another goal. he isn't putting a ton in himself just yet but he now has 10 points in 11 games. Seems like he's finding his groove with Vigneault as coach.

Army won at Sacred Heart tonight 6-2. Somehow Sacred Heart won at Lowell earlier in the season. Crazy.

Apparently, they took advantage of their day off Sunday at Conte. ;)

That I am.

He's really finding his groove and it's awesome to see. He could've had another goal last night as he was alone with Marty but couldn't settle the puck.

When he got called back up, he was placed on a line with Stepan and Zuccarello which has been great as he's always worked very well with Stepan (even back to WJC). Safe to say he's up to stay. He's also really upped his physical game, which was something we didn't see a ton of at BC though by his JR year I recall a couple of the HE favorite "hitting too hard" penalties.

In previous years it really was a chicken egg problem. With his skill set he had minimal value as a 4th liner but to earn time with Torts you have to work your way up.

Them laughing at how unfair he is was hilarious.

Any news on who will be between the pipes for UMass tonight?

Sounds like Doherty is in for Santini.

Despite the record, haven't had the easiest time in the past at Mullins. No TV for this right? Wasn't it a game at Mullins where some channel had a feed that looked like it was transmitted via iphone?

The Springfield CBS affiliate sometimes airs UMass games. Not sure of the quality. If Mastalerz isn't in this could be blowout city.

that article thinks Demko tonight, I would agree, give Billet the home game.......that TV broadcast was insane, the famous WBIN..........they've been better on other games from different venues. I am going to pay to watch if i can, anyone know if ZooMass has that capability? Have not had a chance to look today

A lot of f bombs

Assume it's Demko just to keep the straight rotation which I have no problem with. Though in my eyes it's clear it's Demko's job.

Line charts for the game. Billett (BC) and Haight (UMass) are the starters.

York said pregame that Demko will be out for about a week with a slightly strained/pulled hamstring. His next start could come against Maine. Good opportunity for Billett over these next three games.
