  • congratulations to the team on winning the league- gritty effort after being down 2 goals early

    Two off ice nitpicks
    1. Senior night ceremonies started at 6:50- no one told ticket holders that this was happening before 7 so stands were half empty

    2. When the game ended there were 5 minutes left on NU game- was there some way to show or keep fans there?
    Apparently when that game ended team came back on ice and accepted trophy- Would have been nice if more that a few fans saw it and could salute the team

      They did send emails to all season ticket holders to arrive early for senior night.

      I also stayed after the game ended and watched the end of the UML-NU game on our phones with friends - no one kicked us out. Would've been nice if they put it on the jumbotron, but no one asked us to leave. The team did indeed come back out on the ice with the trophy after it was presented.
      ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

        And as for Senior Night, I got two emails about being in your seat early. Agganis Arena tweeted it out as well. And knowing it was the final home game of the season, you know they were going to honor the seniors so there’s no excuse for not knowing.

        • Do you guys watch the replays the 2nd and 4th goals were deflections. Granted they didn’t look great but watch the replays. He did come up with a few huge saves later in the game namely that huge glove save to keep a one goal game. This was going to be a run and gun game with two offensive minded teams. If they are going to make a run they need to play better in all facets.

The formula they got going now isn’t going to fly In tournament play. Inconsistent goalie, D turnovers, dumb penalties, subpar PP. Lane Hutson covers up a lot of problems
            they won hockey East with they recipe so it isn’t so bad is it? 5 in pairwise too.

              Arena is always half full at 7 on a Friday night. IMO, it was a bad decision to roll back the Friday night start times from 7:30pm. I hope they reverse it next year. It is hard for many people to make it in time for 7.

              As stated, STH got an email. No idea how/if they notified others.

                The team thought last night’s game started at 7:30. : )

                  We will certainly find out. More importantly than a sloppy win, however, is that you guys are back in the Manchester picture now. As of now would probably be:

                  1. Michigan (4)
                  2. BU (5)
                  3. Notre Dame (12)
                  4. Alaska (13)

                  • First, congratulations to the team! Winning the regular season in HE outright is an accomplishment.

                    Now, the Commesso thing. Very talented goalie. WJC experience, Olympic team experience and wins. High draft choice. However, his record in tournament games (and 1 Red Hot Hockey at MSG) is…..1-7. The win is this year’s first game against Air Force at the Desert Hockey Classic. No Beanpot, HE tournament, or NCAA wins. Some of those games he played well, but still no wins of any consequence. All of the goals his own fault, surely not. Some bad team defense - yes. He will need to steal at least portions of games in the tournaments. All champions have that in common on their runs. Let’s hope this trend reverses starting with a quarterfinal win next weekend.

                      Can’t think of a game they deserved to win in those. It’s a team sport and don’t forget an Albie coached team.

                          UMass Lowell played the same number of games but they had 20 fewer goals scored against them.

                              Umass Lowell also play a defensive system. Michigan had given up
                              111 goals this season and plays a very similar style to BU. It’s run and gun.

                                I don’t necessarily disagree. The point is this team doesn’t have really any good experiences in tournament type games with Commesso backstopping the team. We do have a Beanpot with Duplessis in net. It is quite odd. We’ll need a better team effort going forward and we’ll also have to be saying “wow, Drew stole that one to advance “ at least once to win anything. Just my opinion from following and watching BU hockey and college hockey in general for 30+ years.

                                I think this is the type of team we’ve been waiting years for. A large group of experienced upperclassmen, some older for their class years, and a very talented group of high end freshman who are contributing.
