STFU - we controlled that game pretty much all the way. Nice ownership of possession.


He's an ND alum (link)

I thought he was even-handed.


We disagree - if I heard him suggest one more time ...

that the game turned on BC hitting iron, it would be the 15th. Maybe the alum status explains the need to bend over backwards to look "impartial". The way to do that is just to call the game straight.


I only watched the third period

I was wondering a bit about how the first two periods looked based on some of the commentary. Sure they hit the post a few times in this game, but the 20 minutes I saw were pretty much controlled by the Irish. And it wasn't like it was 4-0 going into the third when it should be fairly easy to control tempo. Notre Dame was winning battles in corners and coming up with far more than half of the 50-50 pucks in the third period, when it was 2-0, 3-0 and 4-0, and at both ends of the ice.


That was one of the most unremakable BC teams

I've seen. Certainly one of the slowest. I used to be terrified when they went on the PP but not today.


That top line is damn good but ....

they’re even more top heavy than when they depended on Gaudreau/Hayes/Arnold. No depth.


Only two non conference wins in last two seasons, 10

in total including '16/'17 and that year they were still under .500 outside of HE.


Other than his first 3 years at BC,

the only time York has missed the NCAAs in consecutive seasons there was the last 2, and right now this season looks to be the third in a row. Wonder if he's finally grown tired of being behind the bench? This is his 25th season at BC and he coached for 22 at Bowling Green and Clarkson before that.


The past few years he's had to deal with something...

he never had to - blue chippers doing a one and done or never even showing up. His success was consistently keeping those guys for at least three years.


BC absolutely won that game.

Except their puck did not go into the net more times than ND got it to go in.

Did that guy go to Michigan?
