    That was so much fun to watch in person. It was good to see Gaudreau back on his game. Let's hope he keeps it up for the next 8 games this season.

      In addition to Gaudreau, I think some other guys like Arnold & Straight have been playing through injuries and are only now getting close to 100%. While we obviously don't have the same scoring depth of the past few teams, we still have 2 of the best forwards in the country in JohnnyG and Whitney and I'll take our top 4 Forwards (those two plus Arnold & Mullane) over any other team in the countries top 4. If Alber comes back anywhere close to 100%, that will be a huge boost going forward as it will really shore up the blueline. Guys like Straight, Smith & Linell are going to really have to pick up their games and take a bit of the scoring pressure off the top 4 and we also obviously need Milner to round into the same playoff form that he did last year.

        Strangely enough, since the 1997-98 season, BC has never won between 18 and 24 games. It was either the low of 18 (in 2002 and 2009) or 24 (in 2003) or more. This team is at 20. I think reaching 24 is a realistic possibility. Hopefully they have it in them to go a bit farther.

          In hind sight, perhaps some of the forwards have been putting a little too much pressure on themselves and are trying a bit too hard to pick up their game, to make the pretty pass, to score the pretty goal. The big guns have their back... just go out and play good solid hockey.

          1. First and foremost, work their arses off in the defensive zone to keep the opponent off the board.
          2. Forget about looking pretty in the offensive end. Keep grinding it out in the corners, throw some shots on net and crash. Get dirty around the net and good things usually happen. It has worked out pretty well for the Smith-Brown-Dyroff line.

              Patch cleared to practice fully this week and will be good to go barring a set back in practice, about as healthy as BC is going to be for the rest of the season...

                  Surprised he's been able to build his leg back up so quickly after being in a cast for so long. Atrophy is no joke!

                  Any update on Hayes? Out of the hospital? Good to go next year?

                              Hayes recently had his 4th surgery and will be back to campus this week

                              Also like how BC guy Dan Duquette corrected Ryan Whitney's tweet last night of Parker winning 5 championships

                                Depends on how you interpreted what he was saying. All he said was BU had won 3 national championships, which is factually incorrect. He should have specified while Parker was coach, but even then Parker was an assistant on the other two titles. I think he came off pretty bad.
