    BU Women are Hockey East champions with a 2-1 win over PC in 2OT.

      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.
      Last years "event" sucked ***. This year was better

        Nice.

        Was there an injury issue to start the year or something? I thought most of last years national runner ups returned, yet they were blah.

          Yep. Olympian Marie Philip Poulin was out for the entire first half and came back in the second half where she still missed some games here and there. Not 100% yet but hopefully getting there. One of their other top forwards (Jenelle Kohanchuk- a member of Team Canada U22 National Team) only played 7 games before a concussion ended her season.

              We had to lose. It was to help the PWR...
              If BU beats UNH, it will knock UNH out of TUC status and we'll lose three wins. Brutal.

                The plus side of having it post-game is they can take their time and aren't rushed. BC's announcer sounded like he was trying for an auctioneer job, he sped through the spiel on each player so fast Saturday night. And frankly, having before doesn't mean more bodies in the seats and BU did announce several times for people to stay. Harvard and Maine are two others that do postgame. Harvard is never particularly organized, but the nice thing is after the ceremony, they stay on the ice for a while and socialize w/ each other, have more family and friends come onto the ice for pictures, etc. Maine (assume still do it this way) gives a mike to each of the seniors - can get lengthy, but the one time I went, it was very enjoyable and the majority of the fans stayed (I think the players speaking gets more of the fans to stay since it is more interesting than just hearing a spiel and seeing the players with their parents. A couple/few years ago BU's was more relaxed after it finished and the kids stayed out a bit posing with each other. But they've been pretty much do the ceremony, leave the ice more recently. Not sure if something has changed or it just depends on personalities.

                The negative of postgame is when you lose the game. I've seen Harvard do that a few times and the players did 'recover' quickly, but I'm glad they won this year as I don't think this particular class would have switched to smiles as quickly following a loss.

                A fun senior night is Curry - the players choose who comes out on the ice for them - parents, extended family, girlfriends, roommates, etc. This year included a family dog (who goes to most games and actually watches the games).

                  The other problem with pre-game is if it's an emotional ceremony, it can carry over into the start of the game and negatively affect how well the team plays.

                    If BU wins in 3 can UNH stay in TUC? Thanks

                      Actually it would be 5 wins at that point!

                      I don't have a formula to do the math, but at .5010, I doubt it. BU did Hockey East a big favor by losing to NU last night.

                        "New Hampshire needs a win today OR to advance to at least the HEA semis to remain a TUC."

                        ..the above is what priceless posted yesterday. so with the loss to umo yesterday the only way bu gets to keep the uhn wins in their tuc record is to lay down

                            Agreed. But what happens if we get to the Garden then get shipped off to the midwest, as opposed to losing in the QF then playing in the east? It's honestly tough to consider.
