  • Re: Boston College '12-'13 Part III: Save us Hobey-John Gaudreaubey; you're our only

    Well, that's exactly what I was afraid of--playing them under these circumstances. Credit to them for riding this wave of emotion.

    But, I said I wasn't going to overreact and I'm not going to. These seniors had an incredible run in the Hockey East playoffs, let's not lose sight of that due to this one loss.

    As much as I wanted it to happen, I just couldn't envision Jack Parker going out with a loss to BC (at least not to this version of BC). Hopefully UML takes care of them tomorrow for a little payback from 2009. And that will be that...BU going home, BC in the tourney.

    Anyway, time to look ahead. Let's see where they end up and against who. Oh, and would be nice to get that York guy back behind the bench...

      That was a pretty epic turnaround/collapse. The 1st half of that game was as well as I have seen them play in a long time. They were just toying with BU. Credit to BU for identifying that BC was getting cocky and started those long breakout passes.

      Kudos to them and good luck to UML tomorrow.

        Sort of surprised no TO post BU goal to tie it at 2. Would've been a prototypical York call to slow everything down.

        First, this team isn't of the same level the last 8ish years (sans 2009), we all knew that (we can discuss why I guess postseason). That being said the first 30ish minutes was some of the best this team has played in a long time. Pressure from all lines, pucks deep and completely dominating. BU looked like they had no shot of scoring.

        The next 25 were absolutely disgusting on every level. I think the team had 3 shots in that time. Absolutely zero pressure, Milner was shaky, and the D, Jesus Christ the D, what a ****ing abortion. I guess let's start w the fact that we have a F playing D when we have Sullivan playing on the 4th line and Jeke who was probably the most impressive FR D (sans Matheson) in a suit. Where are you Brian Dumoulin? Wasn't a single Dman that I had an iota of confidence in tonight.

        1-7 on the powerplay. I like the loading up 1 unit, there isn't enough offensive talent to sustain 2 units but please 2nd unit at least gain the zone and try to sustain pressure.

        Oh and I think BU just had another odd man rush.

        Also, that 5 min on Gaudreau was comical

        Edit #2: I hope the man in a Drury jersey who sat in ~328 reads this. Please clean up your act, back to back years with your elementary school kid, he has no shot it's sad.

          Comical? That was one of the dirtiest hits I have seen in 20 plus years of watching Hockey East. He deserved the gate for it!

            The most obvious thing there is, if Milner doesn't play better than that, this team has no shot.

            Jeke is +8 and has only been playing half the season. Get him back in the lineup and put him on defense. Put Linell at forward and Sullivan in the stands.

            I think you could make two PP units if you split the top four forwards and add in Smith/Brown/Straight. Right now, when they send that 2nd unit over the boards, it's like waiving the white flag.

                Stop it. Escobedo launched himself into the boards, then stayed down on the ice, struggled to the bench until the 5 was called, then was suddenly okay. Amazing recovery.

                    You just knew BC was letting them stay in the game when they couldn't convert on more scoring chances and then the total collapse of the D. Once BU scored the 3rd goal that was the game and they never looked backed. Still 14-1 by the seniors not shabby either.

                      Tough to beat a team four times in one year, though. Just ask BU (remember 2006?)

                      And I think BC REALLY missed him tonight...it was very evident after the game completely turned around and BC looked a little shell-shocked. I think Jerry calls a timeout there to settle them down...

                          This is a loss that the team HAS to use as a 'learning experience.' After 1 period my only thought was, "How much will BC win by?" After 2 periods it was, "How much will BU win by?"

                          I hope last night's loss wasn't the difference between BC getting on a bus or getting on a plane for next weekend.

                            Not a great team. BC needs the other team to spend half the game in the box or take a major and score 2 goals on it or have the other team simply score on themselves... That has been the recipe the last few weeks. Maybe that will just happy in 4 straight games. Probably not though. Chances of 1 and done are fairly high for this group let's be honest.

                            Milner stopped 2 breakaways last night and still didn't look great. Last year's goalie debacle may have pushed him to be so good last year. None of that this year unfortunately. Average goalie this year.

Trivino has never been one of those players. Even outside of the rink, he'll say hi and is plenty of friendly, but has never been even close to saying or doing anything inappropriate.
