    A fun fact, BC hasn't lost at home to a HE team not named BU since 11-5-10 a 2-1 L to UNH. One of the best games at Conte in a while. It is a streak of 24 games
    one of the very few home games i've missed over 6 years. Funny i gave my tickets to a UNH grad.........


    and, this from The Kid who answered the email in record time, on Brian Dumoulin:

    It is a bruised knee and I believe he will sit out todays practice.
    With a weeks rest, I think Dumoulin will be more like 90 percent for
    Friday.

      Good to hear, as I said last week he's our most valuable player as we enter the stretch run. He's been the best dman in HE since the day he stepped on campus.

        If only BC didn't throw out a 4 year offer, he'd be a wildcat.

        But really, enjoy the run while you got it. York was a miracle worker keeping him his junior year. I am on the BC bandwagon this year and this year only! The UNH bandwagon ran out of gas sometime back in September

        Good luck down the stretch!

          Thanks. We are definitely spoiled under York.

          He's also done a great, great job at keeping the top players and picks at least 3 years which has allowed the sustained level.

          Thanks to our friend Priceless on the Bracketology thread:
          Who is in:
          Boston College - The lowest I can get them is 7th. I can't get both Lowell and BU ahead of the Eagles. If the Hockey East title came down to them, only the winner would finish ahead of the Eagles. BC's astronomical RPI and stellar record vs TUC's keep them ahead of most teams, even if they get swept at the hands of UMass. If they sweep UMass it will be very difficult to unseat BC from the #1 seed overall.


          This would be huge, to get the Atlantic Hockey team and avoid a powerful yet underachieving team like last year in the first round.

            I think Parker Milner played his way onto being named first team Hockey East. I never thought I would have said that 2 months ago. What helps him is the coaches are only suppose to vote on Hockey East games. And since that is who it has been against over this great stretch (minus the Beanpot games vs. Hockey East teams), they probably have to give it to him.

            Other than Dumoulin for first team and Gaudreau for the All Rookie team, does anyone else receive a nomination?

              I would throw Almeida in there. He's 2nd in the conference in goals scored.

                Understatement of the year. It is silly what BC has done under Jerry's leadership. (Throw Cav in there too, he has been there all but the very first year.) To take over the BC program at arguably its lowest point and turn it into the nations most consistent national power, certainly the best team in the east for the last 12-14 years, is truly remarkable. The one constant through this historic run for the program has been Yorkie and Cav (and Loguey too). Year after year they prove to be the best at their trade. BC Hockey has great tradition, but what they have done since 1998 is legendary. They have raised our level of expectations to a point where Beanpots and HE Regular Season titles are nice to win, but are essentially meaningless if BC doesn't finish the best team in the nation.

                With the way BC has been playing, it is hard to imagine Umass coming into Conte and taking two of three, but stranger things have happened. Would love to see a drama-free sweep into the garden. Keep the momentum and confidence peaking into the HE tournament.

                  If BC loses to UMass, will they also lose a #1 seed in the NCAAs?

                  Also, it is an irony that the loss to CC last year could end up being the antidote for it not to happen this year. Virtually everyone on the team this season was around for (or at least remembers) the collapse last season. Hopefully BC stays in Worcester, which prompted my question above.

                    According to the PWR master here. The lowest we can possibly fall is 7th in the PWR and with a sweep of UMass we nearly assure ourselves of being the #1 overall seed.

                    Barring anything crazy we'll be in Worcester.

                      Excellent. Thank you! It will be good to see them in Worcester, and I'm sure for attendance purposes the NCAA committee would like to see them there, too. If Maine is also sited there I think the Worcester Regional will trump the other three for attendance...regardless of who the other two teams are.

                        Don't know if many of you go on hfboards, but there's a thread on there with someone speculating/hearing that Vatrano won't be coming next year do a year in the USHL. This seems rather improbable to me with the departures of Almeida,Carey, T Atkinson and all but certain Kreider. I was actually going to be surprised if they didn't pick up another late forward recruit like they did with Linell last year.

                          I could see BC asking Brendan Silk to play in the USHL next year, due to injuries and not being productive for the development program; but certainly not Frank Vatrano. He is putting up big numbers for the development team and has already filled out. Silk can still put on some weight.

                                BC has accelerated Evan Richardson. Given Silk's year it does not look like he is ready to come. He'll probably do another year in the USHL. I doubt they will ask Vatrano to do another year in the USHL.
