    On a sad note, I just saw in the Cafe that Peter Graves died.

    don't get me wrong, Shawn's teams used to do that too, over and over and Shawn had the boys in his pocket, but look at the game objectively, and not through scarlet colored glasses and count your blessings.

    (not a fan of Keenan here, but he is "fair" even though he loves his whistle, and if you think that Bennedetto is bad, then I am sure you have NEVER been to a Bunyon game and you have completely forgotten what it was like to have Conrad in the league.... again, count your blessings)
    Why don't you delete your idiotic posts like you do in the Maine thread?

    For Merrimack, a bit of a breakthrough season. Beat every team in HE at least once, were very very tough on home ice, and have a bonifide candidate for Nat'l freshman of the year in DaCosta. Given the relative youth of their roster, they should be a handful for a least the next couple of years.

    To Scarlet and the other rational BU faithful (I'll let you decide amongst yourselves who the rational ones are ) best of luck.
    Thanks! Definitely a tough series - Merrimack never gave up. And a great showing by Merrimack fans.

    Keenan and Benedetto are the absolute worst I've ever seen. Why are they allowed to do this game after game and year after year?

    it sounds like you assume that the number of PPs in a given game should be even, whether or not one team is doing 99% of the hooking, holding, boarding, tripping...

    I really hate it when the refs "make sure that there are the same number of marbles in each pocket by the end of the game."

    If Merrimack belongs in the box and BU doesn't, the the refs ought to call em all on Merrimack, and vice versa.
    This is not the ref determining the outcome of the game, this is the ref enforcing the rules as they are written and NOT rewarding the team that trips, holds and hooks.
    (and GOD forbid ANYONE thinks that I am "taking BU's side")

    slurpees, I couldn't have written it better myself!

    I'm not sure what you all are talking about, but I do know that Bigos gloved down the shot that flipped up in the air, and the puck took a funny bounce and went into the net. Absolutely no question about it, and everyone sitting around me thought the same thing. There wasn't even a stick in the area. The other one you guys are talking about, that Jacques and chickod are talking about - was that at the other end of the ice? The south end, I guess? I do remember one shot that I couldn't believe wasn't a goal, but I don't have a very good view all the way down there. I'm very frustrated with the officiating tonight, mostly because they whistled dead three plays as high-sticks, and there were no sticks, high or otherwise, involved in any way. The first was one near the beginning of the game when Bonino gloved down a puck after it bounced off the glass and the second was one down near the other end of the ice - honestly, neither really mattered that much at the time, but the third one certainly did. After the obviously bad call on the goal/no-goal, you have to start wondering if the referee has a legit visual acuity problem.
    Yes, it was the opposite end of the ice from the disallowed "high stick" goal. It was the second period (the only period that BU shoots at that end).

    no, the one you're thinking about was in front of us. the other one they are talking about was down the other end where the shot would have been in your line of sight (and across from mine). the BU bench would have been between you and the shot and they didn't make a fuss. i couldn't tell, so i've no opinion.

There's no way a puck that hits the post comes out like that, but after play continued for another minute or so, nothing happened at the next whistle.

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