  • BC vs. Denver

    Early test for both teams. Wish I could be there to see the games. Here's to Jimbo.

    Re: BC vs. Denver

    Should be an interesting series between #1 BC and #6/8 DU. Expect DU to play soph Adam Murray in net on Friday and frosh Sam Brittain in net on Saturday. They did a pretty good job at UVM last weekend coming away with a win and a tie. This weekend's games will be on FSN Rocky Mountain and FCS-Pacific on Friday and webcast on Pioneeer Vision (pay) on Saturday.

    Future TV update; both DU games against Minnesota will be broadcast on FSN North Feb. 11 and 12, 2011. The 2/11 game will be tape delayed.

      Both teams seem to have motivation: BC lost a heart-breaker to Denver last year, a game it ought to have won. Denver would certainly like to upend the defending NCAA Champions. Two ties wouldn't be altogether surprising.

        BC's team speed against DU's "all hands on deck" defensive mentality.

        Look for DU to try and rope-a-dope BC, block shots and try and score on counterattacks.

        Most likely outcome IMO is a BC sweep. But DU has four games under their belt, so perhaps if they can get an early lead on Friday the crowd and momentum might get them through it.

        Gwozdecky is at his best when DU is outmanned, over-matched and seemingly has no chance.

        Would love to see a split.

            It is homecoming weekend for DU and the 1968/69 NCAA National Championship Team is being inducted into the DU Hall of Fame. Should be great crowds and the DU boys should be fired up with some historic players being on hand including Craig Patrick and Tom Miller, among others. Unfortunately 3 players from that team have passed away; Keith Magnuson, George Morrison and Frank Daly.

              Same game plan used by Northeastern last Saturday. I expect BC will see a lot of that this season. Should be a good test for both teams.

                I wish I could be there. Should be one of the best series of the year.

                          Actually my take was NU outplayed them and Muse was the star. Shots being even at 30 each doesnt sound like a trap game to me. NU was ahead on shots all game until late when BC rose to the occasion and pulled it out with a late pp goal and an empty netter. NU didnt sit back at all.

                          Will be a good game but BC will prevail

                            My take away from NU Saturday night was that this BC team can beat you so many ways. I actually agree that Muse had to make tougher saves than Rawlings, BC battled hard for the W. With it being the first game they were a bit out of sync, gave up too many odd man rushes, and took too many penalties, but John Muse was there to bail them out. This is a continuation of their success from last year, when they could win the tight 3-2 games as well as the 9-7 games. Different strengths emerge each game and it speaks to the superior level of talent on this team.

                            A split is expected this weekend. Although I'll take a sweep!

                              Exactly right. With that much talent they can win in more than one way. That coupled with their coaches ability to keep them focussed and on the game plan should bode well for them as season continues. Remember, every single team on their schedule circled their game against them the day it came out. Should really help prepare them for playoffs. Only huge, and I repeat, huge concern is the fact that they only have 12 Fs and 7 D. Any injury bugs would spell disaster. With Cross having issues in the past and it beinga long season, I would expect their depth to be tested during the season. When I say depth, I dont mean top 12 and &, I mean reserves. 1-12 and 1-6 is better than any team in the country. As the Red Sox can attest, anything can happen
