Yeah, it was just one win, and it was just Maine, but that was a really fun night -
Fun to finally get a win in Conte for the first time since November.
Fun to see:
-Lyles play and contribute;
-Petrecki play quite possibly his best game of the year - he destroyed a few people at very opportune times and was great carrying the puck;
-Whitney and Ferriero get it going;
-Fast, aggressive, high-flying BC hockey;
-Lombardi score a goal - who works harder than that guy?
-A pretty energetic and full student section;
-Good special teams play.
A few little letups right after goals kept Maine in it, but beyond that BC controlled the game. I thought the 3rd period was particularly masterful. They came out and got their goal to go up 6-3, then played a sound defensive game the rest of the way and never really let Maine get any good chances in the final frame.
Solid B+/A- performance [defense needs a little tightening, but I'm NOT complaining about the overall team effort tonight at all!] - gotta get the sweep this afternoon.
AND - with basketball's win over NC State and women's hockey's 5-0 win @ Vermont, BC athletics moves to 7-0 this week. Men's & Women's Hockey can make us 9-0 tomorrow.
