    Let's consider this a blessing in disguise. This team has no mojo right now and sleepwalks through most wins. Gets leads, blows them. They don't have a championship mindset at all. They get soft and stop skating. And the way they take care of the puck, you'd think possession was a bad thing the way they throw the puck around.

    Hit the reset button. Move on from the worst goaltending performance in postseason history for the BC program.
    Agree with this statement. They win 1st place regular season trophies with their talent. Playoffs are a completely different beast and they haven’t been able to slay it for quite some time. No championships since 2012 and no runner-ups either. I get that if you’re not first you’re last, but in the 2000’s they were champs or runners up pretty much every year. Same head coach, same talent, same first class program, but where’s the mojo? Where’s the physical and mental toughness? Where’s the championship mindset?

    What’s changed?

        Jim Logue was a huge loss behind the bench after 2012. Goes without saying.

        The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

        • Elbowing is the moron who thinks all of York's success was because of Cav

            • JY made a program decision to switch to all offensive defenseman and it has cost us big time. We look like the old UNH teams, totally soft behind the dots. Gone are the days of Orpik, Alberts, Dumolin, Cross, Pietrecki, etc. They cleaned up all the **** behind our net. No running around our d zone for endless stretches. Gone are the championships.

              The sad part is this is not going to get better. There is more pain to come next week. It will get worse next season if we lose Helleson, Boldy & Newhook. UMass could well win the NC at the Garden. Greg Carvel is my choice to replace JY.

              Here’s the deal Pat Kraft should give to JY. Bring in some stay at home defenseman via the portal and try to win one last NC next year at the Garden. Of course he needs to convince the big 3 to return.

              Go Eagles!

              • On offense we have one line that is a threat. Break up Nester and Ambrosio. They have similar styles and both need bangers like Giles and Kuntar to feed pucks to them. Get some balance on each line. Stop the nonsense of benching Kuntar over a legit big hit. That was not a penalty. We desperately need him in our top 9.

                Giles, McLaughlin, Ambrosio
                Kuntar, McBain, Nestarenko

                Go Eagles!

                • Tough crowd. They scored 6* goals. Spencer Knight just had a very, very bad game. Go back and look at the goals. They weren't off turnovers, or being outmuscled in front. Basically all perimeter shots that he normally saves. Just one of those nights for him.

The coaching profession has passed him by. I love York with all my heart, but this is ridiculous. We have all this talent and yet we stand around half the time, we are soft as hell, we get hemmed in our own D-zone, we never have possession in games, and we constantly blow leads. We haven’t won a Hockey East title since 2012 and a Beanpot title since 2016. Far too often this team looks like they rarely practice together. This is not a championship team. The recruiting is fine. The coaching is a problem. North Dakota, Minnesota, Mankato, etc would wax us right now. I know I’m emotional right now, but I’ve felt that we needed a coaching change for a few seasons now. York has to let go of the reins. I hope this team proves me wrong in the tournament though

                    • Knight has been giving up goals blocker side up high. The winning goal the UML guy walked right in front and scored. They were buzzing in the BC end for long stretches and hit 3 posts. UML just happens to suck on defense and BC took advantage of most of their chances. We saw the same result against UMass. This team is going nowhere, this program is going nowhere until they bring in at least two, big stay at home defenseman.

                      As far as offense goes, they were playing the 7 seed. We can’t expect one line to carry us in the NCAA’s. The 2nd and 3rd lines did nothing until Giles overturned OT goal. They have to change those lines up. They are wasting Giles on the 3rd line and Kuntar on the 4th.

                      We are seeing the same year end results all due to poor defense. We look like the old UNH teams!

                      • No excuses but give UML credit for plugging away down 4-1

                        Knight obviously had a bad game

                        I just don't understand when you have a 4-1 lead why you don't adjust and play more defense and tight checking

                        BC for some reason does not like to block shots and plays a passive defense in their zone

                        We all talked about this possibility when they don't play for 60 minutes

                        That disallowed OT goal really hurt too

                        Honestly I couldn't see the offside but BC players need to pay attention to details in close games. Offsides, icings etc. can come back to haunt you.

                          • Re: dmen

                            With Buckley and Orpik on staff, I am sure they have a soft spot for the stay at home dman like a Karow. Helleson is the total package on defense. St. Ivany is a good player. Powell had a very good year. It's not like they lost because Tim Lovell is small. If Knight is simply mediocre they win. Instead he was awful and they paid the price for it.

                            • Regardless of exactly how it happened, this team has demonstrated a disturbing inability to put teams away when they get up on them. Maybe it's their overall youth, I don't know, but the lack of a killer instinct is a problem. A team that blows a 4-1 lead in the third period gets exactly what they deserved.
