I was just recalling a BU exhibition game from 1990 on the 2015-16 schedule thread (maybe it was slightly off topic ) and that got me to thinking about the first college hockey game I ever saw. Since my other summer thread got some interest I though I would start one posting about the first college hockey game attended.
My first game was a date with my then future wife on 1 Nov 1985. BU hosted Maine at Walter Brown Arena and we sat down on the glass to the left of the Maine bench. I remember Maine wore jerseys with Maine in block letters (the last season they wore that style lettering?). I don't recall much else about the game (it was a date after all), but I liked it enough to want to go again. My second game was 2 weeks later when BU hosted BC at WBA. The place was packed and rocking, and this time we were in te upper rows of section 14 in the corner. BC won in overtime when the puck deflected into the BU net off of a BU player's skate (I think it was Brad MacGregor, but I'm not sure).
