Let me ask you a question, think about how many guys in that BU game last night you think will have NHL careers? Not play 11 games, careers? Maybe 1? Now how many will have cups of coffee in NHL? Couple?? Now ask yourself that question again. I think you should sit the next couple of plays out
    There were 22 NHL Draft picks on the ice last night in Providence. 22. So NHL Exec's think there was a complete roster (with spare parts) of a future NHL Team out there.

    Who the the **** are you anyway? And how long have you been watching college hockey? #CredentialsRequested

    I think Bomber's point is that watching BU try to score is like watching old people eat.

    Forget three goals in a game, can they score 3 more goals before the end of the season? *sigh*

    This team doesn't seem to have any "plan" for advancing the puck up the ice. As soon as we get over our blue line it's either a long stretch pass to someone covered by two defenders in the "hope" that somehow it will find his stick, or throw it down the ice. There is no puck support coming through the neutral zone. It's all haphazard, as if there is no scheme at all. At some point that has to be on the coaching staff. We are at the END of the season...they have had 4 1/2 months to work this out. The third period was embarrassing. Almost the entire period was played in the BU end. Other teams can at least get the puck into the opponent's zone with possession. At some point you can't blame the "talent" or the fact that they haven't "been together" long enough. A high school team can do a better job of sustaining offense. They didn't put the final shot totals up (because with any of these "internet" broadcasts they immediately cut away the instant the game ends), but SOG were 41 to 19 after three periods!!!!! And Providence had most of the shots in the OT as well (a look at the box score says 5-1 which means a total of 46-20 for the game). What's worse is if they weren't playing hard, you could cite the "lack of intensity." But it's just wasted energy. One of the more inefficient BU teams I have ever seen in recent memory. A lot of non-productive work that goes nowhere. I don't know what the answer is, but what's worse is that it doesn't appear anyone on the bench does either.
    I remember saying the same thing during the last, oh, 20 years of Parker's tenure! Looked like the team all just met each other for the first time yesterday even though its the end of the year. If you want to look on the bright side, it took Quinn 5 years to learn how to coach. Maybe Albie can ramp up quicker.

    - Chad Krys should only play when we need a goal, not when we are protecting a lead.
    - Thank god for Oettinger. He was phenomenal. His teammates and the coaches owe him one.

    If we get home ice, it is VERY likely that it will be at home against Northeastern. I'd rather play them at Matthews than in front of a one-third full Agganis with 500 Northeastern fans.

    A tough point to pull out on the road. On a night when the ice was so slanted, thankfully our goalie was up for it!
    Go Scarlet!

    Win out & get lots of help from NU and Lowell's opponents. BU wins H2H vs. NU.

    They'd be traveling across town to NU based on current standings.

    From my understanding, BU doesn't have to win out to earn home ice for the QFs, but must obtain at least 4 of the 6 remaining points available, and must win tonight to ensure home ice is still possible. Would also need some help from UML and NU's respective opponents in their remaining games:

    UML: @UNH, UNH, @ UVM
    NU: @BC, BC, UNH

    If BU wins out, they can finish as high as 2nd behind UMASS based on what happens to PC, UML and NU this & next weekend.
