And you can go right to hell, speaking as an alum of NU. BU's won enough crap in my time following college hockey (13 seasons now). Time for someone else to win and Jack freaking Parker to go retire.

No, I'm not still incredibly bitter and angry about this weekend's outcome. Why do you ask?

Cram it up your cramhole, Lafleur

No but seriously, BU is my team. Im friends with just about the entire team on facebook and talk to a bunch of them regularly. Nice guys and they kick ass as a team. BTW, Northeastern blows. You had your redemption chance this weekend after BU ousted you guys out of the Beanpot. Time to go for the clean sweep.

That was pretty much the best hockeywatching night of my life. I mean, even just from neutral standpoint, the UML-NU game must have been awesome. We all went crazy when UML scored to tie and win (sorry), but I would have LOVED to play NU in the final.

The BC/BU game though....I still can't get over it. After it was 1-1, some BC player took a dive at center ice and I was just screaming profanity at him until Strait scored like 8 seconds later. Then when Wilson scored, my god.

After Wilson scored, everybody was screaming at the band "Play the ******* song!!!" and when they played it, the 2nd "**** em up, **** em up BC sucks" chant was just so epic.

I still can't get over that game. I mean, you could hear the desperation in the crowd in the 3rd period, when Cohen scored that goal, it was just this massive, massive release.

Still though, NU fans and BU fans were the only ones that bothered to show up for any of the games, so it would have been nice if they had played each other.

EDIT: BTW, watching Parker during the games is hilarious. His assistants do all the actual coaching (line changes, diagramming plays, etc.) while he just screams at the refs. Also, NU's coach (can't remember his name ATM) absolutely terrifies me, what a beast.

Wish I couldve been there, but I was just watching on my laptop and screaming quite vulgar statements just as you did on the dive, but cheered almost as loud as when the Flyers beat the Caps in Game 7 last year after Wilson scored.

God, that was abso-****ing-lutely awful. Imagine how you felt when the Devs came back against the Flyers in the 2000 playoffs. Now, multiply it by having it be by far the best season ever for the team you follow, and the fact that it was ****ing Lowell, who always has their number in the playoffs, and you can begin to approach how absolutely furious I was about the end of that game. 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.

BC fans didn't show up? I'm shocked! I thought they were "Superfans!" I can at least have some respect for BU fans, who will always show up and have always been, in my experience, loud and supportive. BC fans I have little respect for, because they're mostly front-runners.

I will say the anti-BC chant BU fans do (well, did...haven't been to a NU-BU game in a few years so don't know if they still do it) during every game is a little weird. It's like fans at Flyers/Phillies game doing the "E-A-G-L-E-S" chant. Uhh, wrong game guys!

Glad to see some things never change. Does he still delay line changes to try and grab the last change even when BU is the road team? That drove me insane when I was a season ticket holder. Only saw him get called on it once or twice, too.

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.

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.

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.
