    Yeah…I’m streaming and it’s choppy as if the refresh rate is out of sync.

    • They never pass the puck on a 2 on 1. The goalie squares up and they have no place to shoot it. Right into the pads. Three times tonight

        Well…remember 2005. We beat them five times but not the one that counted. Maybe we’ll reverse that this year.

        • It is not over yet. Now it is over. Sweeping the BU was a little unexpected but BC played very well both nights, so did BU. I think they will meet more than 3 times this year.

          • Why no Devin Kaplan tonight?

            • Well atleast there will be no debating anymore who the better team is. BC was better in all aspects of the game including coaching and intangibles. I think you will
              see more of the same in Beanpot. I don’t know what the official stats show but it seems they were ahead for 75% of the 120 minutes. BU had no answer for the BC FR line who scored 4 goals . BU doesn’t have a dominant line like that. Lane came up as small as his stature. I don’t think they can pass BC in pairwise now short of BC going into a slump.

                • Two wins are two wins but I don't see it as a gulf between the teams. Gonna be extremely difficult for BC to win a 3rd straight time against you in about a week.

                  BU was good early in the first but then took some bad penalties. Really, Zabaneh looked like he should have gotten a penalty in between the two they did call..

                  Just my opinion but I think BC has the better goalie.

                  When you keep Lane Hutson and Celebrini off scoresheet till 2 minutes left on Saturday you're doing something right.

                  These teams playing in the Pot, HE tournament and then NCAAs would be the death of me.

                    NESN broadcast through Xfinity cable was terrible, especially in the final couple minutes.

                      Totally agree. A couple of hit posts go in last night and it could have been a different game. Tonight, I think you would have to be a real BC homer to not admit that BU outplayed them. Fowler was the difference. I'll take the win however it comes, but it is going to be very difficult to beat a team as good as BU three straight times.

                        Par for the course. NESN is one of the worst for streaming.

                        • BU needs to simplify their game vs good teams. Shoot the puck when you have it in the slot and save the stickhandle/back-diagonal plays for the next time you play Vermont

                          • BC’s D-zone structure is so solid. I lost count how many times a BC kid got a stick on a shot attempt. And Fowler is the real deal. BU’s gotta stop shooting glove side on him.

                            BC is just better. Right now. Let’s see how it plays out. This team is going to win big games.

                              I thought BU outplayed BC tonight but Fowler was the difference. BC was outshout 2x1 at one point and was making a lot of mistakes in their zone. BU also got 5 straight penalties from BC and BC hung in there until Gauthier made it 3-2 and then 4-2 later.

                              • I agree that Fowler outplayed Caron, and that was the difference overall (and Caron played very well). Need more shots when the shooter sees the goaltender 15 feet and in. I think someone mentioned the dangle through 3 players - not happening at this level of play- waste of time. Shots on net, go to the net. Our odd man rushes were atrocious most times, and when we played it right, Fowler made the save every time on the weekend. Tips and rebounds at the net - not bad, but again Fowler made all of those saves.

                                So, we’re tied in the standings. Let’s see how it plays out from here. Like Jay said, the effort is certainly there. We had 2 great starts to those games, but never took the lead all weekend - that stings.

                                One last comment. I’m not able to make many games in person since I live down in FL. When I do go, it’s usually this series. That was the loudest and most enthusiastic crowd I have been a part of since moving to Agganis. My complements to the students and the band - they were superb! As for BC - see you in the Beanpot - I wouldn’t want to be in your position having taken both these games and trying to win a 3rd in a row. Go BU!
