Hopeully the ref karma train comes back to bite Miami. Michigan deserved to win last night and the Hockey East refs stole it.

I was rooting for Miami, but that was a bad call.

Is there a consensus out there whether BC is a faster team than Miami? That could be the determining factor.

I'm of the opinion that Miami comes out nervous & tentative against BC (owing to the past NCAA playoff history between them).

Disagree. I think Miami's ****ed about last year vs BU and the thumping from BC in Worcester in 2008. This looks like a destiny year for them.

I think BC can beat Miami, if they stay out of the box (as previously mentioned), and they spend two weeks practicing transitions out of the defensive zone. I also worry that Miami's offense is sufficiently skilled to exploit Muse's weakness to high shots. They also have awesome goaltending.

I am also encouraged by Michigan's performance in the 1st OT. They showed that Miami is vulnerable to crafty offense, which BC has in droves, much more so than Michigan.

I think this game will come down to goaltending, but I hope it doesn't, because if it does it doesn't bode well for BC.

As an aside, I had to chuckle as the rest of the college hockey world got a nice little glimpse of Hockey East officiating last night.

This team proved that they can play up and down offensive games, like this one and the Maine game, as well as tight checking close games like the Alaska game. They seem to play to the opponents style, yet come out on top most of the time. As the negative fans on this board continue to point out, they are not perfect and can always improve, but time and time again they prove to be just good enough to continue moving on in a win or go home situation.

By the way, for all the garbage spewed on this board last week, I thought Sneep was a man among boys out there all weekend.

I put this in the BC thread too... but...

Nice work Eagles... good luck in Detriot and go make it 3 in a row for Comm Ave and for Hockey East.

Ugh. I really don't wanna go through this again as you have some fanboy tendencies about you that I don't like, but yes, you were proven right yesterday. Giving up seven is still a concern, but they did what they had to do to survive and advance. Can they win in Detroit if they have a game like Maine/Yale? I guess nobody knows.

You really do have an issue concerning yourself with other fans and spewing this propaganda that there's an overriding negative attitude about the team. What is wrong with being thrilled they advanced yet still concerned at what the end result might be if they don't clean some things up? I don't get it.

As for Sneep, what a surprise, we disagree. He has the ability to make plays and he showed that this weekend, but he also showed the ability to make crucial mental/physical errors. To say he was a man among boys is way overstated. Sorry if that was too negative for you.

X 2 to everything you said.

I will add that Miami looked a bit tired in the first OT (I didn't watch the second OT). That might have contributed to their defensive breakdowns against Michigans crafty forwards.

I was very impressed by Knapp in OT. He'll be a tough nut to crack.

Yeah, he was great. Don't forget their other guy is the CCHA POTY.

Miami has been rotating Reichard and Knapp each game, no matter how the goalie has played.....so we may not face Knapp, but as others have said Reichard is the CCHA POY and a Hobey finalist.

"We had a lot of good and a lot of bad tonight," senior winger Ben Smith said after the game

Stop being so negative Ben!!!

But I thought they wouldn't make it to the frozen four if they played a game like the Maine game in the HE championship? That was reiterated on this board a few times last week, yet here we are with the same exact game and, what do you know, they are going to Detroit.

A win is a win is a win. Now they have won 3 ugly games and they are HE champs headed to Detroit. I just hope they fix what's wrong before they are national champs.
