It's been said before but it is worth repeating....gotta play a kid named Sullivan at BU!!!

I doubt Tim would play him in as many consecutive games, though...just a hunch he will go with Sirman.

i know it is extremely early, but is anyone else humored by the fact that we are tied for fourth in HE with lowell and have five games in hand on them? :p;):D

Considering Maines record at Agannis, I'll take the tie. Having Oneill and House out hurt so not a bad thing to come out of Boston with a point. Anyone know what happened to ONeill?. Also Sully looks to be the man. I wonder if Ouellette will play this year?

I'm gonna go with a no on Oulettte. Like I just posted in the game thread, not unhappy at all w/ the tie either. Could've won, but could've lost just as easilly. Sully is solid. Ride that horse. esp in league play.

I don't know it was so much playing not to lose, but trying to hold on without House and O'neil. BU is a great team.

Nothing wrong with a tie at Agganis when one of ur top D and captain both are out. What little I heard sounds like Nyquist had a good game. Sounds like Maine coulda/shoulda won it in OT.

Sullivan appears to be the go to guy. The danger in playing one goalie is a bit risky. If Sullivan becomes injured it would be good to be able to have someone developed with game experience to bring in.

I am surprised that Ouellette has not gotten any playing time...not tonight but only 1 game this season has me thinking he is the odd-man out at this present time.

I didn't see the blue team playing not to lose. I thought I was at Agganis tonight watching BU/Maine. Guess not.

I listened to the game on radio. Sounded like Maine and BU both played to win. Not sure how the inference that Maine was playing not to lose could be made.:confused: But, as I say, I wasn't there.

Maine dominated the first 30 minutes of this one. Milan was great and BU did a great job on D, blocking shots/passing lanes. Shots were around 22-4 in favor of Maine through the first 30 minutes... then BU got some mo on the PP half way through the second and started to bring it.

Third period was very even, with the Bears getting some very good chances (even while 'playing not to lose' mode :rolleyes:). There wasn't a whistle from about the 10 minute mark to 4:00 to go with fast action up and down the ice. Maine had some great chances there and thought they were going to get the cushion goal. BU just brought it on big time in desperation the last 4:00.

Both teams looked very good... the Big Four are back for sure.

Sullivan is the real deal in net.

I was there and Maine was absolutely playing to win. All night was back and forth. Nyquist scared me to death about four separate times in the OT. I thought it was a great game and Maine certainly looks like a team that can contend for a FF spot.

Thanks for the info. I can't wait to see BU for two at the Alfond.

This. It felt like Nyquist was on the ice all night. And he scared the bejeezus out of me.

How 'bout when he had the near breakaway in the 2nd? You musta been poopin'. ;)

Nyquist was great, but he didn't scare me even a little bit. :D

I don't know that I agree with you (I know what else is new) at times BU was able to dominate and they were playing with total desperation and Maine was running around. I don't think running around is a strategy. Also Maine had a couple of great chances to go up by 2, best chance was Corkum (boy was great to see hm despite the penalty he took) and he put it over the net.

Overall I thought Maine looked good, played with nice patience and adjusted after the O'Neil injury, which I missed. BU obviously has some nice freshmen talent, but for a game on the road without your captain and then having to adjust and play 11 forwards, since Cornell moved back to D, it was a very good effort. Robby Dee was huge on faceoffs tonight especially on the BU 5 on 3. Where Maine struggled tonight was on the power play. BU had better short handed opportunities.

Nice effort, 3 out of 4 points on the road at UVM and BU is good, now important to take care of business next weekend! Fun to see Maine Hockey!

Don't you mean.....


How 'bout when he had the near breakaway in the 1st, the 2nd and a few more times in the 3rd? You musta been poopin'. ;)


Nyquist was great, but he didn't scare me even a little bit. :D

When do you guys play Maine? Because he might then. :)
