    St. Lawrence at Boston University 11/24

    Great news everyone: No Sunday game this weekend!

    Also no Tuesday evening game, which is more rare for Thanksgiving week.

    St. Lawrence still has a hockey team?

    The Tuesday game seems to be long since abandoned... Which ironically was the one "oddball night" game that I really liked.

    Nick can be a bit of a troll... He is a nice troll, but still a troll. Your best bet is to pay him no mind.

    Hopefully we get some more of this Greatest game I've ever been to, and would be whether SLU won or lost.

    Well I'm just saying that they are an easy team to forget (along with your north country friends in Potsdam). Haven't made much noise lately at all. Never see them on tv out here in Boston. That's all.

    Probably similar story to mine. Started watching it on Fox New England only to have it pre-empted by a Celtics game.......then began a scramble to try and find a link to listen on the Internet. Couldn't get on the SLU site as it was very limited at the time and no more people could get onto it. Finally found a way to listen on the BU site. Did get to watch the rest of it later that night when Fox re-broadcast the OT's they missed.

    Maybe I missed it (if not)...Surprised nobody has mentioned the fact that two Canton NY kids captain each team in this match-up! There is a pretty good group of north country kids in DI and pro hockey these days.

    Any advice from the St Lawrence fans? Who should we be looking for on your team in the way of exciting players etc.

    Looking forward to a good post-turkey matchup.

    Our top two forwards by far will be Kyle Flanagan (16) and Greg Carey (10). Unfortunately, as they go, the team will go. After starting the season off on a tear, they have cooled off a bit, and there hasn't been considerable secondary scoring. Chris Martin (25) has looked impressive in his soph campaign so far.

    The defensive side of the puck has 6 guys who all played a considerable amount last season. They're led by George Hughes (15), along with Justin Baker (51). They will also QB the top powerplay unit, and are dangerous offensively.

    I would expect Matt Weninger to get the nod in net, as there really isn't any goalie controversy at all in Canton, NY.

    I will guess and say that our top 2 lines will probably be comparable in terms of skill, but our 3rd and 4th lines will likely be a little inferior compared to BU. Hopefully the fellas put in a full 60 minute effort, otherwise it could be a long bus ride back to the north country.

    That 2000 Game in Albany (longest NCAA tournament game) was one of the greatest games I have had the privilege of attending. 4OT and 70+ saves by each goalie, finalized with a SLU win, was Awesome! Only had wished that our 1988 NCAA Championship appearance vs Lake Superior had come up with the same results in Lake Placid. This was another great game to be at and watch the Lappin brothers. Unfortunately our team this year seems to be very sporadic, so hopefully we will be able to give the Terriers a good game. Also very true that both Wade Megan and Kyle Flanagan are both Canton boys. Lets also not forget that Peverley, who helped the Bruins win the Cup two years ago, is also a SLU grad.

    Go Saints Go

    kinda...


    mookie was at the in laws watching on fne and like y'all the pitino celtics broke in. mookie calls the station to find out ***igo and nobody is answering.. mookie runs out to fire up a car to listen on the radio. bu at the time had some weakassed am station (times, they don't a change ) but then out of plymouth. no signal at all for mookie out in northern worcester county. mookies only option is to start driving closer to plymouth. the car at the end of the driveway was the fil's van (silver dodge with a blue and red racing strip - whatever). mookie starts driving east on rt 2 and the signal is getting stronger. mookie notices a rest stop on the other side of the highway so he exits and get in the westbound lane and parks... and listens.... and listens... and listens. the OT ends and mookie leans back and takes in his surroundings. he notices that he is the only car parked, but there are a couple cars doing laps around the parking lot. hmmmm. another lap. wth. just some random dudes in cars doing laps in a rest area around mookie and his silver van with racing strips.... hmmm.. JUST SOME RANDOM DUDES WITH CARS DOING LAPS AROUND MOOKIE!!!!

    mookie puts the van in reverse and gets out of the rest area and takes the next exit and uses the remaining time of intermission to drive even closer to boston and parks in a restaurant parking lot to listen to the rest of the game.

    ....not that there is anything wrong with that.

    That's alright, I listened to Yale/Harvard on an IPhone in a hotel parking lot in Bethlehem PA last season, six pack of Yuengling helped ease the loss!

    Spaceman was in Hawaii at that time. He rang up a cell phone bill of close to $200.00 by calling a friend of his in NYC every 2 minutes to get updates. Luckily, I was at the game - the greatest sporting event I've attended in my 60 years. Amazing thing was that BU had played the day before. What a game.
