  • #71 is special. Fun night of hockey.

    Why was Jay yelling at the ref after the game? I saw something on Twitter about head hits to Macklin not being called? Is there a particular incident that I missed?

    Maine week. I'd love to hear stories from the hey-day of this rivalry from my fellow old-timers. In the 90's the two best teams in Hockey East were Maine and BU. And Shawn Walsh was the perfect villain.

    It Happened!!!!

    • I think I noticed that Celebrini was not on ice for first power play
      That happened shortly after BU lost challenge for a major penalty on Lowell
      Assume both related to head hit on Celebrini

      Nice to see Hughes get one- limited production from him so far but was injured

      Good test next weekend- Long hiding Maine fans probably going to be present again

      • Found a link of the hit. Yep, that's a penalty.

          BU Hockey: Old Home Week
          Plenty of stories, Jackie going nuts and chucking anything he could find on Alfond ice. Jack and Shawn sitting in the stands not allowed on the bench , can’t remember why though but the league did it. BU asst coach trying to climb over the glass behind bench in Alfond trying to fight with fans. BU runway covered with tarps so Maine fans couldn’t get to them on and off the ice. The night Maine lost to BU I remember Jack sweeping the runway, I thought it was weird but it was him calming his nerves I think anyway. Brother and sister of one of the BU players holding up a sign the next night after that loss, the sign had the zero crossed out and a one put in the loss column. The brother was waving that around all night, finally a Maine fan took it from him and tore it up. I know several people who had windows broken in parking lot near wba, flat tires etc. Standing at Alfond, on rail, south end. Puck came off goalies stick, hit structural post under sky boxes and then my wife in the head. She was ok but I told we couldn’t leave as it was BU.

          No hockey will ever be as good as that if you ask me or any long time Maine fan. Hatred might not be a strong enough word

          I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.

          • I thought it was a dominating effort. Any game these days where you can beat a UMass Lowell team 6-1 is quite incredible. We do have that goalie’s number though. I think they were saying we put 5 up against this guy twice last year when he was at UMass. I’m surprised they started him.

            The team looked really in sync. Starting to know who they are and how to operate from the defensive zone on out. Things are moving in the right direction.

            With Maine playing well, it should be a heck of a series next weekend. I’m glad it’s at home. I watched the OT last night vs BC. Orono sounded like it will be a very tough place to play again with the team they have.

            If M. Celebrini can remain healthy and not have his head knocked around all season, he will have a great chance at leading the NCAA in scoring. We probably have the best forward and offensive defenseman in all of college hockey. That is some combination. These guys may end up duking it out all season for the Hobey!

            • It's funny how some guys can skate like the wind but just can't score and other guys skate like a rusty backhoe, but have a knack for scoring. I love watching Nick Zabaneh skate, but it would be nice if he could pot a few. Reminds me of Ryan Cloonan in this way.

              Shane LaChance, on the other hand... takes a while to get those RPMs above idle, but he knows where to go.
              Go BU!

                  Remember the Jackie Parker pics on sticks in the stands at Alfond? Went to Boston one year for a game at WBA and stayed at the teams hotel. Remember going to the bar in there for a drink and there must have been 50 Maine fans including Grant Standbrook yelling in unison "BU Sux, BU Sux". Gotta good chuckle out of it.
                  I believe in equality of effort. In life, in hockey in everything.

                    Hockey East Championship game, Boston Garden, March 1991. After our glorious OT victory we walked outside and got verbally abused by a medium sized pack of Maine fans. I must have had the gift of the gab in those days, because I shouted back "At least we're not inbred!".

                      Don’t forget the time that as a student worker in the ticket office….I copied a couple hundred Parker faces and fans held them up as Jack walked across the ice….he either laughed or gave us the finger…..I prefer to remember it as the latter.

                            Robbie Wright tells a very funny story about Matt Wright needing to be escorted to the bus by Maine State Police after Matt rammed the goalie through the net and into the boards on a shoot out to try to injure him.

                              Obviously my favorite BU-Maine memory is making the trip up to Orono in 92-93 and seeing our boys pin the loss on the Kariya team. I have a funny memory from that game: In between periods I was standing up in the concourse, stretching my legs. I must have been wearing a BU sweatshirt or something. This little old man, decked out in Maine gear from head to toe, looking like he was 75 if he was a day, comes waddling up to me as fast as his legs would carry him. I was preparing for some good-natured hockey banter. Instead, his face contorted into near-hatred as he said "what are YOU people doing here? Where did you get your tickets?" I responded that I'd bought them back in Boston. He then said "there are MAINE people who should be in those seats." He turned on his heels and walked away. Oh well, so much for it's only a game.

                                Back in the early '90's, BU was up in Orono for a two game set. Scott Cashman was the Friday starter, and either got yanked or put up a very crooked number. Pregame Saturday, he was obviously hearing some things from the crowd. Particularly as it was clear he was not going to be the starter. He did though, before leaving the ice, circle the defensive zone and toss pucks to about 20 kids in the first few rows. Fun gesture.
