Carey, Hayes and Smith were locked in together. And Bradford continues to make outstanding plays.
There's a group of freshmen who sit near us in the student section, and they were asking "why are we doing so poorly lately? I thought we were really good?," and we tried to explain that it happens all the time, BC works on things during the season, but when they get into a rhythm... look out.
They were in that rhythm yesterday. Wowza. Now, it's time to clean up on the defensive end.
As someone mentioned on USCHO, Kucharski, Lombardi and Orpik work extremely well together and I'd like to see that line stay together as often as possible. Lombardi had a bit of a rough start to the game, taking a penalty in the first period, but he recovered with a goal and a number of solid hits on UNH players.
BC was good overall at taking the body last night - Petrecki had a nice, textbook shoulder-to-chest hit about four feet in front of me behind the net right along the glass, and Almeida provided the highlight of the night by tipping JVR over into the bench.
It wasn't the best weekend in BC hockey history but any time you give up 11 goals and get 3 points on the weekend you can't complain. Bring on UMass.
Also, I know I said this earlier, but HOLY CRAP BC beat Florida State! What else is there to say?
