They seem to be recruiting ok but your right, i think cav will ultimately top out at uconn as a middle of the pack hockey east team

Maybe they used the same counting method there that they used at Agganis!

where is BC attendance expert Brian Gentry when you need him!:)

biggest concern was coming back and finding the car on cinderblocks

i wonder how long cav is for that job. get them back to middle of HE, spin it as a miracle and GTFO for a big time program (wisco?). i wonder if he would leave the northeast.

Drove up from New York for the game. Grew up in Brighton and lived in Hartford for 11 years. At entry they told us that per UConn policy, they couldn't let my girlfriend her take her camera into the arena. UConn, of course, is the 800-pound gorilla in that state.

So be it. I brought her camera back to my car and put it in the trunk. Then, when we tried to enter again, some thuggish female security guard who probably couldn't spell Connecticut got out a tape measure and told her that her purse was too big. We made a stink and they let us through, but put a silly green wristband on the purse. I asked if that assured us free roller-coaster rides and they gave us dirty looks.

Nice to see BC hang a four-spot in the first 11 minutes. By the way, if they announced a crowd of 7,200, they were lying.

Just so many things to love about uconn and that building, right? This thanksgiving, i am thankful for joey bertagna.

I do admit I enjoy going back to the building because in my sports journalism days I loved covering the late, great Whalers for smaller Connecticut media outlets. But the security thugs were another story. They were far worse than anything I've encountered covering MTA board meetings in New York.

Given the recent ISIS events, I would imagine they were probably overdoing things a little bit. Somewhat understandable.

Hartford seems more a recruiting pool than a victim pool!

this is interesting, from the kid "For the first time all season, the staff rolled three lines as neither Peter McMullen nor Travis Jeke saw any ice time." vs Yukon no less which i guess i understand given last year's debacle. Jerry wasn't taking prisoners here

When it gets to a point where mcmullen dresses, it's clear they don't want to play him. So that really makes it a 3 line game. Not ideal long term but can get away with it temporarily. No idea what's going on with silk but would be nice to get either him or calnan back as soon as possible.

makes sense . Always hard to get info on any injury and with Silk, who knows? The Kid only mentions both being out but no reason given for Silk

You missed it...
As for the visitors, they will be without senior Brendan Silk (separated shoulder) and junior Chris Calnan (upper body). The staff will go with the same lineup as Saturday night with the only exception being Peter McMullen taking Chris Brown's spot on the fourth line.

Happy Thanksgiving All.

Upper level seats are bench. It shouldn't be hard to find empty lower bowl seats for this game.

by the time he hangs it up, if not already, Luke Kuechly will be/is the best player in any sport that BC has ever produced and is just as good a role model

Ummm, Joe Mullen, Brian Leetch, should I continue? ILB isn't considered that important of a position in pro football. He's a great player, but many BC hockey alums are far better in their sport.
