I was impressed with NEU, they're very defensive (trapped basically the entire game), but they work their ***** off and they have an excellent forecheck, easily the best team I've seen BU play this year even though they don't have the most talent, very impressive.

And btw, Yip and Ginand got into it several times, should be fun to follow if they play each other at the HE tourney.
NU is always a hard working, grinding team. They've never been able to compete with BC/BU for the elite talent (other than the occasional player like Jim Fahey), but they are usually very tough to play against. I'm hoping this is the season they start to make some noise in the HE playoffs, and can start building their program some more. They've come out of nowhere to be this good, so I'm hoping Cronin can continue it.
