      So you don’t believe the published attendance number of 3201 either?

          Well if you include the vendors, the mask police, the pep band and the maintenance staff maybe..but they were never all in the rink at the same time. 7200 seats no way it was 40% full ever tonight not even close. If someone is producing those stats they are inflated. Maybe fans came and went. However, just an FYI inflated stats were common during my tenure at BU. Hell, John Silber invented the term inflated stats. LOL!.

            And I think 7200 is the basketball or concert number. Hockey is something like 6300.

            • What kind of offensive system is BU using?
              The one where they get out-shot in both games AT HOME against Sacred Heart?
              The one where they were out-shot in almost every game last year, but were consistently bailed out by Commesso and Duplessis?
              The one with all of those NHL draft choices and high-end talent?

              Maybe one of the student reporters will ask Albie?

                Just kind a of a strange concept when you really think about it.
                I think a guy named Carlin did a whole skit about that. Clever guy he was.

                  I wasn't aware of that. But it makes sense. He hit those philosophical topics...

                    It's called the Constipated Offense, and he learned it from Parker. There are only two rules. First, everyone must act like they're all just met each other for the first time. There is no flow, cohesion or set up, just chaos. Next, every rush into the offensive zone must result in a dump into the corner, after which the forwards are given the option of going back to the bench immediately for a line change even if there are no defenders present, or passing the puck to the blue line for a long slap shot from the point and then going for a line change, thus ensuring zero traffic in front of the net. Rinse and repeat 5 million times.

                    • It would be interesting in the limited media time the reporters get with O'Connell is they could try to get an injury update

                        Mum's the word! The disclosure rules instituted a few years ago are so confining that we generally aren't even told that the injury has occurred, nor whether it's a scratch or a season-ender. You offense really could have used Tuch and Amonte this weekend.
                        My Northeastern team has its own casualty list. We had to play with 5 Ds for about 54 minutes against BC last Friday after Harris was slewfooted. At least we made it interesting. We let BC skate around so much that they had nothing left in the third period against Bentley the next night. That was delightful!

                            Injury news, especially at the college level is extremely limited these days.

                              Albie did address injuries on today's call. He said there would be "more guys available than last weekend" and that “yesterday we had most of the people available.” (Assuming he meant most of those who were not available last weekend.)

                              Three players will definitely not be available. He said “Luke Tuch will be out for a bit,” adding that he wouldn’t dress “this week or next. O’Brien as well.” Jarman has had season-ending surgery. No mention of McCarthy, so hopefully, he’ll be back. No mention of Ty Amonte either.

                              More from the call on the blog.

                              • McCarthy returns on defense, paired with Fensore. Campolieto returns, paired with Webber. Same forward lines as last game.
