    Umiliated!

    Are they related in any way? It's uncanny how they both had a knack for postseason chokes.

    Poor Crowley

    She has the Leo Duroacher in her " nice guys finish last "

    But hopefully it's not single elimination format

    Seems like they coughed up another hair ball. JY needs to give the pregame on how to overcome their history.

    2nd UMass goal was a fluke bounce but sometimes you get those when playing well. I agree the game really turned on first UMass goal. That's just a terrible shift after a goal. UMass winger beats Weight to the inside and Helleson really didn't play that one well at all. At the same time Knight probably makes that save more often than not. Had a firm grip on the game and let UMass back in there. Some good teaching opportunities anyway. And really not the worst thing in the world to "get a loss out of the way" against UMass. Quite possible BC sees them two more times this year.

    Agree 3 on 3 is pond hockey, puck possession is what counts. I am glad to know the playoffs will be 5 on 5. Both goalies were terrific, Umass grinds you and they wear you out down low. Unmass first goal was key and they didn't spend any time feeling sorry for themselves, good coaching. There was a lot of grabbing, Newhook was wrestled to the ice several times. Good game to watch, BC's defensemen had a tough night. every time they play it is going to be a battle, Umass is very good and very tough mentally.

    You can parse it however you like. I am just giving an opinion that BC and UMass are 1 and 2. BU at UMass in a potential semifinal, I am taking UMass. That's all. An early sweep doesn't mean everything. BC also swept UMass earlier in the year. And if they meet again I am fairly confident it will be a one goal game like tonight.

    I definitely agree that there are 3 top teams, but BU losing to MC is a real surprise. BU has not shown a lot of offense. The next 3 are NU, PC and UConn in no particular order.

    I do believe that BC has 1st place locked up due to BU losing. The HEPI gave BU credit for winning games not played. Their win probability took a major hit with tonight’s loss.

    Go Eagles!

    Ya I was wondering if HEPI uses that same weighted formula. I don't know when this all started but people in charge really think fans hate ties I guess.

    Heavyweight battle there.

    Giving up that goal after McBain's absolute missile was where the game went awry for BC. UMass went to work after that and BC got worked for large portions of the 3nd and 2nd.

    They got away with a lot including tackling McLaughlin in front of the net in the 3rd when a rebound was sent wide. 1 penalty all game for UMass? Sure.

    3x3 is terrible, it's a sideshow... and I just learned this week they barely count for more than a tie (55% of a win)? Why not let them play 5x5 and attempt to MAYBE get a real 100% win? I have a hard time imagining what kind of chromosomally defective lifeform(s) signed off on all of this.

    They were out played physically and lost a lot of face offs. UMass controlled the puck for most of the game. BC was running around in their defensive zone most of the night. No doubt that UMass is playing their best hockey at the right time.

    Go Eagles!
