For those really missing hockey, I tonight's BC@BU and tomorrow's BU@BC will be on NBCSports at 7:30. BC's #1 and has been all season, and BU started in the mid-teens and has moved up to #9.

Matt Grzelcyk(BU, #5, D) was a 2nd round pick in 2012 for the Bruins.
Teddy Doherty(BC, #4, D) was a 1st round pick in 2012 for the Panthers
Kevin Hayes(BC, #12, F) was a 1st round pick in 2010 for the Blackhawks

There are also a few other 3rd-4th round picks on the rosters.

Also of note is that if Jerry York needs 1 win to tie Ron Mason at 924 and 2 to pass him for the most wins as a coach in collegiate hockey history. BU's Jack Parker is currently #3 with 884

Given I've only watched a couple of games but Hayes looks to be on a tear this year. He's a big body like his brother and it seems like it finally started to click and he's learned how to use his frame against smaller guys.

Watching St. Louis cry as he hugs Thomas during the handshakes after game 7 still gets me to this day. Goosebumps every single time.

What a fucking game.

The end of that game was one of the most dominant displays of defense I've ever seen. I wanted to be terrified and shitting my pants, but Chara was like "no fuck you, celebrate bitch" as he and everyone else didn't give Tampa anything close to a real opportunity.

Like that game in some distant future when Chara and Hamilton will stand together at the blue line with their arms outstretched screaming YOU CANNOT PASS.

It was only 1-0, but from a pure hockey standpoint, that was the best game I've ever seen a Bruins team play.

I mean, with a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals on the line the Bruins didn't allow the Lightning to even touch the puck inside their blue line the final 3:00. Amazing.

This is basically the first live hockey I've watched since the Stanley Cup. Goddamn I miss it.

Taranna-based Santa gets fired for telling 3 year old the Leafs suck

Mary Trent says she was shocked by the behaviour of the Lowe’s Toronto Christmas Market Santa Claus as her son approached him. After Santa arrived a half hour late for his appearance, he proceeded to insult the boy’s red plaid coat.
“The first thing he tells my son is, ‘Oh, you look like Paul Bunyan,’ ” she said. “Really? Is that appropriate?

“Then he said, ‘Oh, you’re wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs tuque, you shouldn’t be wearing that, they suck.’ At that point, I took my son and told him we should go, Santa isn’t being very good today.”

Trent said her son was inconsolable and cried all the way home to Mississauga.

I've only seen a few shifts but Hamilton looks very raw defensively. Got beaten like a rented mule on the goal and has been out of position a few times in his first two shifts of the 2nd.

Gold-colored glasses translation - Griffith is going to be an all-star Datsyuk-level draft steal while Hamilton is coasting because he expected to be in Boston and won't shine until he is challenged by real men.

Colby took the lead early in the 1st period and went up 4-1 in the 2nd period, putting Tufts in a hole out of which the Jumbos could not climb.


That is the trouble with Jumbos. Too heavy to climb out of holes...

Eddie's insistence that Bergeron pushed in his goal was one of the most insane things I've ever seen from a sports commentator.

Get there about 15 mins before. They don't start boarding until about10 mins before departure, so no need to sit around. You literally just walk up, show your ticket, and walk on. Takes 2 seconds.

If you're going in the afternoon, the sun sets on the right side of the train, so depending on whether you want to see the sunset or avoid it, choose your seat accordingly. When boarding, make the walk further up toward the front of the train, less people do that so those cars fill up last (although none fill up completely at South Station). Feel free to bring food/drinks on board. The internet sucks so you can't rely on it, but they have power outlets at all the seats which helps.

It's really very easy and comfortable to ride on, especially compared to flying.

Do you they have a drink/food cart or anything? Or should all food/beverages be provided by myself?

With no direct flights out of Boston to Philly, this was a no-brainer.

Yeah there's a cafe car in the middle of the train. Normal drinks (water, soda, coffee, juice), beer, liquor, wine. Prices are ok. The food is pretty bad though, I wouldn't count on that for anything but snacks, certainly not for a full meal of food. I'd advise bringing a sandwich or something along if you're looking for dinner.

Edit: Cafe Car Menu
