    I was living in ATL in 2000. Saw the "first part" of the 4OT game at a bar (the designated BU location), but I think it eventually went off air. But honestly, I'm not sure. I know the bar didn't switch to the Celtics the way the local station here did.

    I do remember that some idiot poster was jumping all over Dan Cavanaugh for costing us the game...as if any player should have legs after two full games.

    I remember calling my mom to ask her to tape the Oscars. Since the game started at noon, I thought we would be home in time for the start of the show but nooooo.

    Yikes on the Yip story. BU beat SLU 5-3 in 2000. I don't think that's the off air/back on air game, but 21 years ago was 21 years ago.

    Happy to have bonus hockey. I hope all teams make it to the weekend healthy and virus free.

    Sean Pickett will know this for sure but what I remember about the SLU game was the broadcast went off air because of a Celtics game and then came BACK to the hockey game that was still going on once the Celtics game ended. Do I have that right?

    My wife somehow came across this and asked if I had ever heard of Brandon Yip:

    Hey, Albany is allowing fans! Bridgeport is not.

    Was kind of hoping for an old time BU-Lake State game.

    Interesting to see the equipment, and remember some of those BU players, Danby Stirling etc (ugh) and Dean Blais for Minnie. I like the more subdued celebrations after a goal, guys acting like they have done it before, rather than the Euro football histrionics.
    A couple other observations: 1) stand up goalies looked very off-balance on a regular basis 2) Minnesota's headgear looked like that won by boxers when they are practicing.

    CHN'S bracket projection--taking into account tonight's conference championship games--has BU as the #3 seed in the Northeast regional, facing #2 seed Wisconsin.

    Fargo
    1. North Dakota vs. 4. St. Lawrence
    2. Minnesota State vs. 3. Minnesota-Duluth

    Loveland
    1. Minnesota vs. 4. Omaha
    2. St. Cloud State vs 3. Lake Superior

    Bridgeport
    1. Boston College vs. 4. American International
    2. Michigan vs. 3. Quinnipiac

    Albany
    1. Massachusetts vs. 4. Providence
    2. Wisconsin vs. 3. Boston University

    FWIW, USCHO's bracketology--done two days ago--offered two scenarios. In one, BU is the #3 seed in Bridgeport, facing #2 seed St. Cloud. In the other, BU is a #4, facing #1 seed Minnesota in Loveland, Colorado.
    SLU winning actually helped bump us up since they must be a 4 seed, AIC is pretty solid as a 4 seed and the two other at-larges from the PC, UML, Omaha, Denver, Notre Dame, Bowling Green pool will not be a 3 seed above us.
