Sorry for posting on this thread but coming down from NH for game today. What are chances of a sell out?An intersting question as the debate about 4 pm starts has raged on this board since the schedule was released. The Agganis website shows 61 scattered individual tickets available, 2 pairs of two seats together, and 69 tickets in the visitor section PC apparently returned yesterday. BU also sells several hundred standing room tickets and there are also always some tickets available from resellers/scalpers. Also the Ticketmaster ticket exchange shows 19 tickets for resale (4 pairs of two, 2 groups of 4 and 1 group of 3).

They also haven't released sections 107-109 yet, so there is likely a good number of tickets there.

Which is completely ridiculous. I thought that Quinn would probably sit him but in no way did it rise up to league action.You don't know Joe. ;)

Which Providence players were suspended for reaching out of the bench area, pushing, shoving, punching the BU players on the ice, and taking Greenway's stick and throwing it down the hallway behind the Providence bench?

Oh come on now, that pales in comparison to " one of the worst hits" Coach Leaman has ever seen.

So is today's game on regular NESN? Because there's a sports bar right next to my hotel and they said they would put the game on one of their eleventy million TVs if they can find it.

They also haven't released sections 107-109 yet, so there is likely a good number of tickets there.80 tickets at the bottom of 109 have been released. Also there are now 72 tickets available in other sections, some pairs and a group of 4 - I believe they may include the ticket exchange tickets. Only 29 tickets remain the in the visitor's section.

So I have to chime in here. First of all, the number of tickets sold is irrelevant, because many of those people won't go once they have realized that the Pats are playing at 4:30. Second, I get the whole "TV" thing and how the networks control the start times. Fine. But what's the excuse for Sunday? The game is not on TV, so why is it at 4? Under what scenario is that a good decision? We can't use any of the following:
- Team has to fly back
- They have class the next day
- They played late the night before so they need rest

Given that the NFL schedule is "flexible," it's understandable that when the schedule came out they probably assumed that there would be a Pats game at 1:00 (although 4 still makes no sense because how can you get to a 4 p.m. game when the football game wouldn't even be over until at least 4:15?). Fine. Why couldn't they change the start time once they realized the game had been flexed to 4:30? Yes, I know there's the DVR argument, but in Massachusetts it's almost impossible to not find out the result of a game like this before you can watch it.

It's hard to understand the logic...

Am I missing something? The game is at 4 today, not tomorrow. Or are you talking about something else?

No. I got completely lost in a time warp because of my job and actually didn't get home to watch the DVR of the game until 2:00 a.m. this morning. I didn't really look at the schedule, but I could have sworn (I almost feel like running it back just to check) that Tom Caron (of course, that should have been a clue right there) said "These two teams will go at it again Sunday at 4." But I may have been wrong. Sorry if I confused anyone (although I think the only person I confused was myself). :eek:

Dude, you just love to complain. Glad Tom Caron provided you some good material. :)

Not the worst idea in the world. Providence is a tough team to play against. They're physically mature, disciplined and patient. They prevent goals first and capitalize on mistakes. I think lost in the mix of them winning it all last year was that their "profile" is no different than it always was. They're a defensive team that is boring to watch and even tougher to play. It's been like that since the early 70's (which is as long as I have been watching). So DQ needed to light a fire under the team. At this point, what difference is another penalty going to make if they aren't going to score anyway?

Even the most mild mannered coach would be livid at this sham job. I've never heard the refs booed so loudly at Agganis.

They seem to get away with that style of play even more in their home rink and they keep pounding and pounding you. I remember a couple of our players were hurt at the Schneider Arena as the refs seem to allow a lot of that chippy play. That is how they play and how they win with the type of players they have.

One major each of the last two plus seasons on PC hockey and only one ejection in the last two plus years...yep physical but not dirty.

The officiating was atrocious this afternoon as they were calling penalties which were nowhere near penalties. The tying PC pp goal, the player who committed the penalty was right in front of me and did nothing wrong.
