Anybody watching on TV know what happened to sit?

According to kid: Mike Sit has a minor lower body injury. Just kept him out because it was a blowout when he left the ice. He is fine.

Wow! I guess UVM and/or BU are getting no respect for next weekend.
Congrats on the regular season championship.

how has Alber gone from a player you never wanted to have the puck or be near it to where you are almost or even in fact are comfortable when he is on the ice especially in the offensive end? To me, very quietly he has improved his game big time........i know he isn't all world but for those of us who have seen almost all of his games, we understand the huge improvement

Absolutely true. D3-6 have all made big jumps but Alber was horrendous for a good stretch and lately has been playing great hockey.

Don't underestimate how big the emergence of Macleod has been for this defense. He is getting more ice time and is playing well.

MacLeod needs to work on his shots and one timers from the point. Dumoulin and Cross can give him pointers.

I know it's either you or Nick P but one of you tooted the Wey horn towards the end of last season and I pooh pooh'ed that (btw did anyone else see Happy Birthday Pu Ping get on the board, I chuckled) but jesus has Wey taken a step up post injury. The team D has improved as a whole but he has stood out to me the past couple of weeks.

Brought this up on EA but I was intrigued by how leaman handled the first period. No timeout, no goalie change, didn't even gather his team during a TV timeout. Looked like he was storming into the room at intermission though...prob let em have it. I don't know his coaching style but it's as if he was testing his team to see how they'd react on their own to adversity. Like he was seeing which guys he can count on going forward.

the last non-BU HE team to beat BC at Conte was UNH on 11/5/10 2-1

By the way, while we should wait for BC hockey attendance expert Brian Gentry to officially make a statement, I'd like to point out that BC had 7,419 for a SELLOUT at Conte. Hmmmmmmm... yea BC counts tickets sold. RIGHT!

Re: macleod

Agree that the one area he needs to work on are his puck skills, including his shot. He's been very steady though.

Obviously wey didn't make a huge impact right away coming back from injury, but him getting into a groove has made it easy to roll out three consistent d pairings. That's all they need. They've had the exact same lineup for each win during the nine game streak.

Colleges--and the NCAA--are whacked out when it comes to attendance. You watch when the NCAA (basketball) East Regionals are held in Boston in March. Attendance will soar over 19,000 even though the official capacity for TD Garden for basketball is 18,624. That's because they count press up in the halo as 'tickets sold.'

he had a high ankle sprain which lingers for a real long time. i would surmise he is finally healthy. he looks much quicker and that makes his decisions seem better than the plays he attempted earlier in the year. same with hayes really from the time the calendar turned.

OK BU won in OT 3-2

BC needs 3 pts. next weekend to clinch 1st place. VT has nothing to play for but looking to spoil BC's goal of finishing 1st in HE.

umass won and their rpi went above .500 becoming a tuc (added a W and two Ls to y'alls tuc record).

(umass and afa moved back into the tuc's after both falling out last night bringing the tuc list up to 32 teams from 30)

Mookie, so BC should be rooting for a chance at UMass in the playoffs to eliminate them as a TUC? I want UMass anyway...
