  • Wow, that was a different game in the OT. Many more chances for sure. Providence had some great ones as well. Commesso was the wall we need him to be. The only thing he gave up was when he didn’t have a stick! I love that. I’ve been waiting for that.

    However, how may pucks did we fan on passes in critical areas for turnovers and shots in tight? That’s got to be nerves. Fortunately we turned some of the tide in OT and mostly played with poise. The pass by Tuch was magnificent and Quinn Hutson is a natural goal scorer. I think he hit the post and bar earlier in the 3rd. On to the Championship Game!

    • Couple of upsets already in conference semis - Quinnipiac lost to Colgate 2-1 and Denver lost to CC 1-0 if everyone didn’t see yet. Coluld be a low number of at larges. Merrimack better hope they win their game.

      • Does the ECAC have a consolation game? Does the NCHC? Should BU manage to win tomorrow, any chance they move up in the pairwise?

        The Freep tweeted out the Case McCarthy broke his collarbone. Yikes. That was so scary to see.

          No consolation games. If BU wins and Michigan loses, BU is #4 in most scenarios. They are likely 4/5 with Michigan and in the same regional either way. If BU loses and Harvard wins it gets a bit more interesting.

          • I don’t know how this team wins another game with 4 healthy D with experience. Basically 3. Oy.

            And Gallagher was a jumpy turn-over machine tonight.

              You can absolutely beat Lowell. They probably had no business beating UConn or being in this game with 7 shots.

                  Well, if they can't score we won't be playing them.

                  • Really didn't like how often the team was knocked off the puck and on their *** by Providence and Pando needs to make adjustments much earlier in the game. Looked like it was going to end up like the NU Beanpot game. Would like to see a better gameplan from the start against teams that play a physical game.

                    Despite all that, winning makes everything better. However they need to win the title tomorrow or this season is a disappointment. They need to prove that they can come up big in a big game.

Previously one player would try to pull the puck around. They finally realized that they had to just get the puck behind the defense and forget about the pretty play. Providence just makes you play that way. It's ugly, but that's how they have had success.
                      They made a more concerted effort in the final couple of minutes in the 3rd and throughout OT to enter the zone by taking the puck wide and using speed to get past the blue line, then look to the front of the net for scoring opportunities. Both goals were scored this way. Not sure I understand the comment from Bomber that they finally started to look like themselves the last 5 minutes of OT. I thought they played pretty good hockey throughout all of OT and the final couple minutes of the game.

                        6-9-2/7-10 in the past five seasons in the Beanpot/HE/NCAAs. Not good enough.

                          It was but thankfully it appears Case is (comparatively) OK. I've heard from a few different folks that he indeed broke his collarbone and may have sustained a concussion but they believe he does not have a spinal injury.

                          Of course, he's done for the year but that's fine. He can recover from a collarbone injury and play again next year and that's all that matters.

                          Someone caught a picture of him giving a thumbs up to the team as he was coming off the ice: https://twitter.com/chnews/status/1636889145921671168

                          • In the last 13 periods of HE playoffs I’ve watched (tonight and BC/MC) there have been 4 goals scored when the goalie had a stick. I’m not sure if this is the most impressive showing of hockey skill.

                            • Congrats on your 3-0 victory tomorrow

                              • Beat Merrimack and you're in Manchester. Lose and you could still end up in Manchester but there's a chance you go to Bridgeport with QU.
