Seriously, too many men? Up by 1, with less than 2 minutes to go? I thought Cronin was going to kill someone. Hell, I wanted to break stuff.
Yeah that has to suck. NU being a good team is great for Hockey East, I've heard Thiessen is sticking around, so hopefully you'll stay good even with losing Ginand and Vitale.

God, it was truly pathetic. There were a couple thousand BU students on the one side of the ice and on the other side, the BC student "group" was like 30 kids and I'm not exaggerating at either end. I know they had the NCAA game, but still, that's pathetic.

Yeah, I dunno, we just do it for fun at every game, it's always much better at the BC games though of course.

Oh, and Greg Cronin is awesome. He's been amazing at NU, and I hope they can keep him around for a while. And yes, he's a beast...I'd never want to cross him.
I've only been to a few BU away games, but I haven't noticed it too much. I don't really see him do anything, I think his main value at this point is from the recruiting standpoint.
