    Team doesn’t have it. They don’t bury enough chances, too many sloppy defensive turnovers and Caron not a championship goalie. They are not on BC’s level at all. So sick of watching them skating circles in offensive zone accomplishing nothing. I thought Celebrini would take charge tonite wasn’t his best game. Underperforming group.

      You won't be winning a national championship with Caron in goal. He's incredibly average.

        The second goal was a little weak. But I feel as though sometimes all these skilled players try to make perfect plays. Before the game in interviews (I think it was) Luke Tuch said they need to get in front to screen shots. But then they don’t shoot…too much passing. They seem to allow teams to stay in games so that a bad break (terrible “holding” call) or one good play beats them.

        • The “penalty” call on our own rush was simply the cursory pp for NU. They couldn’t go the whole game and not give them a power play. You knew that was coming. Unfortunately they scored on their chance when Caron was miserably out of position and slow to get to the space. It didn’t help that Webber was without a stick. We needed the kill to win that game.

          I mean 2 goals on 5 shots in the second for them and 1 goal on 1 shot in OT - really?

            Agreed. Not much can be done now. At this point you have to ride that horse…

            • Besides Celebrini, this forward group has underachieved. They need to simplify their game in the offensive zone and get the puck to the net

              BU reminds me of the UNH teams from 20-25 years ago.
              -Loads of skill up and down the lineup
              -Will win a ton of games
              -Wont beat a good team in a rock fight in a big game.

                Thinking the same thing. Almost too talented? If that's possible. Winning a national championship or big game needs a team built like the 1980 Olympic Team. Especially in college hockey or amateur sports in general. NU is closer to that make up than BU to some extent.

                  Well…not exactly. You’re right if it’s one game. The problem is, NU has to even GET to the tournament first. Then they have to win a regional just to get to the FF. Then two more against great teams. Remember you probably have to get to 14 in the PWR just to get in. Congrats on the win but let’s not get carried away.

                    The thought of NU winning an NCAA tournament game is laugh out loud funny. Nevermind them actually making it in this year but then also winning a game. NUs season will end in HE QFs.

                      I'm not saying NU is going I'm saying BU isn't winning it. They over built they are the Yankees of college hockey. It's not what you need, think the recent winners from Hockey East PC and UMASS, one or two good NHL caliber players, good goalies and scrappy 3rd and 4th liners. That's the formula.

                        Not the Yankees, that implies superstars up and down the lineup. This team has a lot of good to very good players with 71 and 20 being the “Yankees”. If Tuch was a Yankee he would have one timed the puck instead of holding it and letting the goalie get set. He couldn’t one time it because he’s not a “Yankee”.

                        • They played tight all night. On the big stage under the bright lights, they wilted. This team is missing an intangible. An “it” factor.

                          Time to say **** it and just play. You can’t soar if you’re trapped in your own head.

                          Brutal loss.

                          Having said that, the 3 on 3 OT for this tournament is a joke. (They still probably would have lost, but still … ). **** sandwich night.

                          It Happened!!!!

                              You are correct, NU will not win a national championship this year. That said, since they got healthy, they are a combined 4-2-1 against BC, BU, Maine, and QPac......not sure they are going to face much better than that. So if its laugh out loud funny for NU to win a natty, its even funnier to think BU has a chance, since they are 1-2 against the big joke that is NU.

                                If you are going by time of possession, pressure, dictating play, yes. Similar to the BC series, only NU didn’t play anywhere near to the level of BC. We really limited their opportunities with blocked shots and good sticks on D most of the night. BU was the better team in that sense. But obviously we didn’t reap the rewards with a few more goals. Every time we took the lead was a chance to really grab all the momentum and go up by 2 - we failed to capitalize. I think the phantom penalty was obviously huge. Kill it and it’s probably a win. Jay was as frustrated as he gets. What are you going to do? Like he said, you need to move on. It seems the Huskies have quite the Beanpot mojo going on. Kings of the 3 x 3 OT (which is a travesty) in this tournament for sure I guess. This hurts, but there are bigger fish to fry. The OT loss barely moved the needle in the PWR. We are still 3 , and they are still 20. We are assured of making the NCAA’s and they are probably not making it without a HE tournament championship. Let’s see what happens. Forget BC, these are the guys I want to send to the golf course in March right now! Need a little better goaltending and killer instinct in trophy games. Hopefully they can get on the right side of a few of these in March and April.
