    Winning these games? How about winning every game since 1/21/12. This time of year it's about winning and they are certainly doing that right.

    Revenge factor tonight, being swept in Maine was BC's last loss. Pay back time.

      Looking at their schedule since the MC series, they've played PC twice, VT twice, UMass twice, PC again (hardly the gauntlet of opposition). Most of those games have been on TV and it seems they are playing worse with each game. Just my .02.

        Hard to believe given where they were earlier in the year, but one win away from doing something they've never done under York--three straight HE titles. And they're currently on the longest winning streak in the York era (14 and counting hopefully).
        .
        When Milner let that second goal in i was wondering if his confidence was going to take a major hit and he would revert back to what he was earlier in the year and to his enormous credit, he shook it off and played the rest of the game as confidently and cleanly as he had been and PC had a number of excellent chances. Great job kid.

        Also, didnt BC also win 14 in a row before, (gulp) the Michigan St disaster/choke job in 2007? i'll have to go check that one out

        edit: they won 13 in a row in 2007 leading to the Boyle Pinch

          I know it's beating a dead horse but compare the two:

          “I can’t describe how disappointed I was in my team’s effort tonight, or lack of such,” said BU coach Jack Parker. “We had a lot of key guys just disappear I thought. I thought that we left Kieran out to dry a number of times. We gave up four power-play goals, one of which was an empty-netter, and they didn’t have to work for anything."

          York: "To get to the Garden, we had to go through a pretty difficult opponent in UMass. I think Providence came out the same way, they played us hard."

            York is obviously the better coach - and has maintained success into his 60s a lot better than Parker. But to be fair, quoting one guy after a win vs the other guy after a loss doesn't prove your point.

              Onion man, absolutely nothing wrong with saying what you said. It's a valid point and deserves to be on the table. It shouldn't cause certain people to become all defensive. My only concern is they'll have to play better to win it all. We've seen them do it. I'm not gonna attack them if they don't. Winning 14 in a row in any fashion is mighty impressive.

                    I agree. I think BC finds the gas tonight that some people say they're running out of.

                    6-3, BC.

                      I have to give some kudos to Steve Whitney. You see multipoint games everywhere and he really has taken the stupid penalty out of his game. REally helped in the balance of scoring.

                        Anyone know if Abbott is playing tonight? I'd be surprised to see him.

                            I think someone posted in the Maine thread that Whitehead said he doesn't expect Abbott in the lineup tonight.

                                A Mookie disciple , is sandbagging a major at BU?

                                ok, so i'll play this game. I actually think Maine is going to take this tonight, honestly, with Abbott or without him.............just a gut feeling. I think Maine is the team no one wants to play , IMO........ I would have preferred a BU-BC matchup so we could have listened to the tired "we are sick of BC-BU" refrain from Husky nation
