    Ulf's kid Adam going to be playing for BC, just like brother. Not making it easy to root for them this year. Hopefully he leaves after 1 year, like the Tkachuk kid from the other side of Comm Ave.

    Hockey East resumes conference play tonight with a full slate of games, including #7 Providence College visiting Boston College. Although BC is 0-8 OOC this season (yes, you read that correctly, including a loss to Bentley and a sweep by ASU), they have a 6-1-2 mark IN conference, in 2nd place in HE.

    BC hasn’t won a OOC game in over 2 years. Only chance this year is the Beanpot.

    York may be entering Parker territory at the end of his reign. Minus the rampant sexual assaults and general loss of institutional control, of course.

    Quinnipiac fan /ST holder here. Team is back after a down year, with a strong group of Frosh, some vets stepping up (Tufto, Priskie, Fortunato) and two pretty good goalies. Ranked 6th now, split with UMass in home and home earlier in year. Beat Dartmouth last night after a slow start. Should be a good one against Hahvahd tonight.

    I don't know if anyone else attended (or watched) #8 NU vs. #1 UMass at Matthews Arena tonight but holy hell was that some kind of a game. NU wins 2-1 in OT on a sweet goal from freshman Tyler Madden (make sure you watch the whole video for the celebration). Sophomore Cayden Primeau saved 45/46(!!) UMass shots.

    Never expected a repeat after losing Gaudette, Sykura, and Stevens. It helps that it's a down year for the other Boston schools, but NU teams in the past have found ways to lose to BU and BC teams having down years.

    It feels so goddamn good to beat both BU and BC in back to back years on the way to the Beanpot. They're not what they once were but NU is firmly on the map as a program now. And to do it after losing that top line? This is not the old NU anymore.

    If they can snag an NCAA bid next month I'll be thrilled with this year.

    Still dreaming of the Frozen Four some day... they should have a chance as long as Primeau is in net. He is something special. I hope the Habs trade his rights.

    Any idea if Primeau is coming back next year? Madden looks like he'll be a huge contributor over the next few years as well.

    Wow. Nice to drop the wait time between titles from 30 years to 1. This used to be the longest day on the sports calendar, another year with no title and 12 months wait for the next shot. This feeling is way, way better.

    Loved that game last night.

    And I'm happy to see they actually have championship hats available this year. I looked for a while last year after they won and was unable to find any championship gear.

    Madden is the best freshman I've seen at NU. Only competition in my eyes is Roy and Madden has an edge, confidence, and polish that Roy didn't have. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being the best professional forward from NU from the last decade (him or Gaudette). If he wasn't still so small I could see him signing with Vancouver this summer. Think he'll stick around another year or 2.

    Primeau is going to be a 3, probably 4 year player, but Madigan did say post game last night that Primeau has been so good that Montreal might come calling sooner. I think he's better served here for next year and probably the next year, and I think that will win out at the end of the day.

    Davies will sign with NJD this summer. Shea may sign with Chicago too. But between Harris, Kislin, Madden, and Primeau they have a strong core with a really highly regarded recruiting class coming in. Next year might be too soon but if Madden and especially Primeau are here for 2020-2021, look out.

    The only way BC or BU will make the NCAA tournament is if one wins the Hockey East tournament and gets the automatic conference courtesy bid.

    As of right now, BC is 35th in the pairwise rankings, BU is 27th. There is almost no way they'll make it into the top 13-15 or so. Their only ticket - is to stomp through the HE playoffs. And only one can make it in - if UMass wins that tourney , or Northeastern, it's all over.

    Northeastern is 13th. There's a shot - provided that some bottom feeder teams don't win their conference playoffs and knock them down the Pairwise ladder.

    I got a hat last year, have a friend on campus who picked up a couple for me, been wearing it all day. The black/gray 2019 hat is way cooler.

    The one in that link doesn’t look like the ones the team was wearing last night. I ordered one anyway but I hope it’s the black and grey version. If it’s not I might take a trip over to campus looking for it.

    Ugh, just clicked the link and that's NOT the same same hat. BU is one of my clients, probably head over to the NU bookstore on Thursday to look for swag. It'll cleanse my soul after a day on Comm Ave. Anyone who wants in hit me with a PM and I'll do my best to hook you up.

    I don't need a hook up as much as recon - if they have the black & grey at the bookstore let me know please. :)
