Usually it's a life and death struggle with the third game going to overtime. Seriously. Even in 2009 when we won the national championship we barely won the quarterfinal series.

    Edit: OK - so I lied...I decided to look it up...

    2011 - Northeastern wins 3-2
    2010 - BU beats Merrimack in three (2nd game in overtime won by Merrimack)
    2009 - BU beats Maine in three
    2008 - BU beats Lowell in three
    2007 - BU beats Vermont in overtime in game 3
    2006 - BU beats UMass in a two game sweep
    2005 - BU beats Providence in three after losing game 1, 4-1

    This is one of the enigmas about this team. It would be nice for once if they just came out in an important game and buried the other team. The nonchalant, disinterested attitude is getting old...even the Northeastern announcers tonight were raving about the talent on this BU team ("even after losing three good players" - in their words).
    It's just the deal they got.. get home ice, then make season ticket holders pay for 3 games

      Notice we've played all 9 other HE teams now in the last 9 years.

I'm sure CBS was really thrilled to do BOTH of those games...talk about a snooze fest. Vermont had ZERO chance in either game. Unlike (maybe it was Rover) the person who mentioned that BU often comes out "flat," it's VERY RARE that BC does the same.
        UMass has played BC tough, granted that was much earlier and if you look at the GF/ga columns you see that UMass can put the puck in the net while PC can't. It's always difficult to play from behind, which might be the case if anyone plays UMass. They're pretty good.

                When two opposite points of view are expressed with equal intensity, the truth does not necessarily lie exactly halfway between them. It is possible for one side to be simply wrong.

                  That may be the craziest stat I have ever seen. What are the chances of that?

                        Just the fact it's done after the game as opposed to before.

                            Only if ~70% of the fans leave before it starts...which is how it always goes.

                              Ahh.. I see the complaint. Do the players complain about it? On the flip side, has that same ~70% not arrived / still at concessions for a 6:55 ceremony?

                                No idea what the players think, but I imagine it would be more fun with a packed house that stood and cheered to thank them.

                                I'm not saying before the game would be any better. I'm saying whether it's before or after the game it would be nice to have a nice large crowd there.
