    Re: BU Terriers 2018-19: Albie in Charge

    My 1900 may be too low, but a quick glance at the Lowell ticket site shows many many tickets available. 3000 may be a more accurate guess. I'll make a close to game time decision. Have not been to Tsongas in years and might be fun.

    I put the attendance over/under at about 1900.
    I had originally put it at 3000 and got this from a Lowell fan- still sticking with 3000

    3000 for the over/under? I'd take the over without hesitation.

    Average attendance for playoff games at Tsongas:

    2018 2934 (2 games - Merrimack)
    2017 4470 (3 games - UNH)
    2016 5399 (2 games - BU)
    2015 3614 (3 games - Angry Leprechauns)
    2014 3610 (3 games - Vermont)
    2013 4235 (2 games - Maine)
    2012 3874 (3 games - PC)

    :d

    It's tough when the last game was such a dud. There are certainly tougher tasks than taking 2 out of 3 at Tsongas, so I haven't written the team off. I just hope they can find their A-game. I'm planning to go to Saturday's game.

    I was thinking (too lazy to look up) - how often has this team successfully won a road series to get to the Garden? I can think of two. One was the great upset of I think you may #1 BC in 2004 in 3 games. The only other one that comes to mind was in Providence, It think sometime in late 90's early 2000s. I don't recall if that series went 2 or 3 games.
    Relying on memory here, that was 2003, and BU took out PC in 2 straight. I think you may remember, Doug, that during the 2nd game, BU had possession in the PC d-zone, and swapped all 5 skaters on the fly.

    Agreed that BU checked-out after 20 minutes. But Rob really stood on his head at times in the 1st, though. BU could've scored then 3-4 times, easily.

    Hate to break it to you, that was McGovern's first start of the season. It may have been his third appearance.
