I thought it was interesting they kept going high blocker on Swayman. He saw those pucks and handled them with ease (it was kind of impressive). Must have been clear instructions via the pre-game scouting report but seemed to not be great info IMO. The only one they got by him when he was set was glove side and he never really saw that one. The other was a rebound and one from in tight blocker side while he was down (slick play by Boldy who looked great once again). I hope they donít keep shooting blocker side tonight.
Was actually going to say that the more I watch Boldy the more I think his overall production is hurt by his linemates. But the other two lines have been so good I think they're just going to stay as is for now. Remember when McPhee scored 12 goals as a sophomore? He is just a total non factor out there offensively. McBain is decent but those guys just don't have the skill Boldy displays.
Looking at the OT winner again, you just can't let that happen. Two defenders behind the net have things covered as Tralmaks is on the ground. The 3 other BC skaters are all in front of the net. There was nothing threatening about that play. They somehow lose Tralmaks, nobody was expecting it and they were asleep at the wheel. Nice play by Tralmaks and Doherty to finish that one but totally preventable. Can't be giving up 4 to Maine, priority #1 tonight should be attention to detail and team defense. Secondly is finish your chances. Too many grade A chances last night that they did not convert. Swayman is good but Maine hung him out to dry.
SWayman was the Hey Man last last night. As commented the second period was just a bad bad period of hockey and uncharacteristic of the defense. No third man high in the defense zone and just fumbling of the puck. The OT goal was a battle lost behind the net and a nothing play that turns into a GWG. In the third I was just hoping for a tie.
On goals #2 and 3 Moore was on D
Goal #2 he gave guy too much space to snipe
Goal #3 he missed the centering pass and too much space in front of the goalie
Goal #4 what can you say ? #3 was on defense and #7 and honestly it was a nice backhand flick but it looked like Knight just wasnít expecting it
Give Maine credit for pulling off a must win for them because theyíre battling for a playoff spot deep in the bottom of hockey East
Shaping up to be one frustrating weekend! Not there tonight but doesn't feel like they've been getting the big saves from Knight recently. Maine 2/2 on PP and BC 1/6. There's your difference.
Another one for the Koharski highlight reel tonight. Tons of calls all night and a blatant slash which leads to the GWG goes uncalled...he is so bad.

Oh boy can't wait to see the highlight of that
Haven't seen it yet but I did watch the postgame presser and York obviously thought they missed the call. Shades of Cory Larose I suppose.
Was really impressed with Mike Mottau. He gives really solid analysis without all the nonsense.
Well you can complain if a blown call directly leads to an OT loss but overall yes, do better on the PP and you won't be in OT.
Didnít see this coming at all. Maine is an ok team probably better than many give them credit for but also ... just an ok team. BC got very lucky last weekend to pull down 4 points... this weekend... idk but you canít lose both games at home to Maine. Schedule will not be full of cupcakes down the stretch. Need to get the defense figured out. Our season will end with the same commentary weíve had for the past few seasons.
Mike Mottau was on the call tonight??? He must have had flashbacks...
Those things probably even out. I would say BC was pretty unlucky to come away with 0 points this weekend.
HE with 7 of the top 17 in PWR right now. Turning into a pretty good year for the league. The QFs should be tremendous.
Just saw the highlights, they call that slash 100% of the time these days. That was brutal.
Fair enough, just sticks out more on a game ending play.
