    Re: #3 BU hosts #6 Merrimack -- a week of Hokydad!

    was the BU goal waved off as a high stick because Mack's #3 hit it with a high stick and it next touched his teammate (Cannatta) before going in the cage?

    i'm not sure of the rule....

    This thread is half way down page 2 despite an overtime game tonight and a game 3 upcoming tomorrow night. Nobody has had a thing to say about this series since before the game started. Shocking!

    Poor Gryba. I guess the instigator penalty means he won't win the HE sportsmanship award this year? There really wasn't much of a "mix", until he got into Bigos' face. There was an absolutely bogus cross check call on BU (when Bigos was slding the puck back to Cannatta) but there was an obvious make-up call on MC not long after. Again, it happens, no complaint from me.

    Yes, the refs miss calls, both ways, imagine that. Get over it. BU won, MC lost, new game tonight.

    Scarlet, WRD357 was referencing that none of the BU posters are commenting about the uncalled penalty on the pick play by Cohen. Why would they complain, it led directly to a BU goal?
    In no way am I acting like we saw BU get taken out back by the officiating last night. I'm saying its absurd that Merrimack fans are complaining about the officiating when the reffing style was very beneficial to their style of play.

    any mack fan complaining about officiating should read the powerplay section of the boxscore then read the part where you had two pps in the 3rd after we went up 3-2..you got the calls and had your chances.

    Ah, OK. It did't read like that. Thanks for the clarification.

    There was actually a delayed penalty coming on that if Saponari hadn't scored.

    Was talking about this last night with some people, but if there was fighting in college hockey, are there any two guys you'd like to see go at it more than Gryba and Bigos? That's a big time heavyweight bout right there.

    Now it's my time to say huh???? Do you mean the hit on Connolly or by Connolly? The hit by Connolly was called. The hit on him was not and TBA just complained about it. So I don't know why you said no one on the BU side was was complaining about it. And if you want more of us to complain about it, add me to that list. Because it should have been called. As should the slash on Perreira that started that whole skirmish where Gryba got thos penalties.

    If anything the officiating benefited the less skilled team. The first 10 minutes of the game was Merrimack exhibiting just about every penalty in the book and the Hansen Wonder Twins stunk it up letting it go.
    Huh?? Is this the Gryba that BU fans love to tout as a tough guy? Gryba wasn't involved in the initial play and then came up and got into Bigos' face. I give him credit for starting with a guy 20 pounds heavier than he is but to refer to the other guy as a thug?? Maybe Bigos will be the career leader in PIM's at Merrimack someday just like Gryba is at BU.

    Disappointed in the result, but a fun game to watch. Random thoughts: No complaints about the refs. BU turned up the "physicality" in the 2nd period, and won virtually all the battles on the boards. Looked up to see a 2 on none for BU's 1st goal...didn't see the pick, but mookie said it was (that's good enough for me) and now I know why Ross was fuming.
    BU penalty kill was excellent, quick puck movement out of the zone. MC's lack of faceoff wins was glaring.
    I thought Vellaca was far and away MC's best offensive player last night, and Cannatta was very solid. For BU, very impressed with Warchofsky and Saponari.
    The "hanger" strategy worked for MC's 1st goal, but I though BU managed to defend it pretty well otherwise.
    Hope MC can extend the series tonight.
