    Goalies rarely, if ever, win Hobeys.

      I mean, yeah, he played well...against St. Cloud, who barely had a .500 record and Quinnipiac. If you're looking at it that arbitrarily, why not look at his performance in the NCHC semis/consolation? Anything but stellar. I was thoroughly unimpressed with him tonight. Probably just a bad game, but on the big stage, that was a colossal chokejob.

        SCSU also had a very tough schedule. *shudderingatdefendingSCSU*

          What I saw was AFTER everything had quieted down, he skated by the North Dakota player and bumped him with his shoulder. It was a DUMB play and clearly instigating. He was just lucky that the ND player retaliated, and they caught that. Not a good game by ERod...I know he was great in the regionals...just not tonight. Hope he bounces back.

            Impressed with everything about North Dakota's team except for their goalie. Yikes.

            On to the finals and I have tickets to this one!
            I don't recall him doing this during the regular season. O'Connor's sorties have been starting in Manchester, if I recall. Just leave the puck there, man. Let the defense take care of it.

              The worst part was that, on TV, Buccigross was saying that it was smart of BU to cause all the extracurricular activity because it gave the top line some extra ice time.


              I was disappointed that BU didn't pursue an active forecheck after UND's second goal, mainly staying back and killing time. That works when there's three minutes left, but there was about 8 minutes left, and not when you're on the PP.

                But they had a three goal lead and it was NEVER in doubt until you know what happened. You don't take ANY chances in that situation. Then they HAND them a shorthanded goal...

                    In a weird way, I think the way the UND game went was good for BU going into Saturdays game. In the few games I've seen (I'm in Florida), BU plays well when they are just a little scared so maybe a scare was better than a fairly unsatisfying 4-1 win. Just my humble take on it.

                      I forget exactly when, but it was during the PP (that ND scored the shorty) that BU ran a weak powerplay unit, I believe only sending two forwards up. Now, playing your PP isn't exactly taking chances, is it?

                        Wow. This is pretty amazing.
                        All this after losing to Bentley last season.

                          The one in the first Wisconsin game was quite memorable actually... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeEef3QmtvI#t=2m56s

                          He was very lucky. https://vine.co/v/eBxqvVHPtq7

                          I think I've finally returned to a regular heartbeat. Man, we made that way too exciting in the end. Can't expect Gillies to be as soft as Zane was last night (disappointing for him if that's his last game), so need to be smarter.

                            I forgot about that. I think that he gets himself into much of the trouble. I really hope he stops trying to Brodeur the puck, because he's not.
