-Nobody got hurt.
-Kyle Kucharski and Andrew Orpik continue to be outstanding
-Brock Bradford is also still a serious Hobey candidate; he scored his 15th goal of the season tonight
-There was no fog.
But that's about it.
That game was all sorts of awful. It had to be one of the most boring events in Conte Forum history, for starters; no small feat for a building that's hosted freshman convocations, Church in the 21st Century lectures, scholarship dinners, and Al Skinner's flex offense against powerhouse non-conference foes like Bryant and SC-Upstate.
BC continues to play uninspired, undisciplined hockey. I'd get pissed off and worried about it, but the last three years obviously lead me to believe that BC can and will turn it around before the season is over.
But this gives me two thoughts, neither of them particularly good:
1) Why should we even bother buying tickets for games prior to mid-February if they're just glorified practice sessions? is it worth the emotional investment? and;
2) will there eventually come a time when they try to 'turn on the switch' and it just doesn't go on? Can they really do this every year?
Tomorrow, BC heads into Agganis for about as tough as game as they could possibly have at this point in the season. In '07, a road game at Agganis after a long slump helped provide the spark that fueled BC's late run to the Frozen Four; can they find some Agganis magic again?
I sure hope so, or else it won't be much fun to be in the stands tomorrow night.
Slumping BC @ red-hot BU, in front of 6,000 frenzied fans. Knowing BC hockey, it could well be a recipe for success.
