Northeast Regional 2012

Alas now to the NE regional in Worcester. As expected they get the #16 seed in AFA, while Maine battles UMD in the nightcap.

Not necessarily an easy game but BC should get by AFA. The next game, UMD and Maine will be a war.

BC and AFA have two things in common....lots of speed and depth. Not saying that the Falcons have the caliber of depth that BC has, but they are loaded - both up front and on the blueline.

The AFA players BC will need to keep an eye on/contain to beat them are: Defensemen Tim Kirby and Scott Mathis, and upfront Kyle DeLaurell, John Kruse, Cole Gunner and Casey Kleisinger. IMO, Kirby and Mathis are one of the best defensive pairings not only in Atlantic Hockey, but in the nation.

I'm really looking forward to watching this matchup because both teams have a lot of firepower and speed. Although, I think BC will win the game, AFA won't make it easy for them, especially if Jason Torf can do in net what he did for them last year.

I agree, Air Force has never gone down easy no matter who the opponent is in the NCAA tournament. BC needs to get on top first and try to exploit their depth and special teams. I don't see a blowout by any means.

Flames fans are firmly behind BC. We hope Gaudreau and Arnold step it up and help you win a National Championship

Got back from the DCU awhile ago. Great weekend for Parker Milner and the team as they win both games by shutouts in the Northeast Regional.

BC plays Minnesota in the semis while Union plays FS. Another big test for the Eagles but they have 2 weeks to prepare for the Gophers.

Just play one game at a time and hope for the best here. This team was in a mid season slump and have reeled off 17 wins now, hopefully they can extend it 2 more games.

But hasn't that been the case in the last few years?

Johnny Gaudreau is one heckuva player.

That pick will go down as a huge steal for the Flames.

Gaudreau is 150 soaking wet and undersized for the pro game. But then Gerbe has made it with Buffalo so far despite his size. Arnold is one tough kid and BC looks to him next year with all the players BC loses to graduation and early signings. Kreider and Dumoulin are expected to leave after their junior year.

Just one more game to go and hopefully comes out on top after beating Minnesota badly. Parker Milner came up big again.

To be fair, I just started watching BC Hockey and College hockey this year because of Tommy Cross who's Bruins property.

Johnny Gaudreau is a steal. What a great player. He's only a Freshman so the sky is the limit.

Beanpot MVP
Hockey East MVP and All Tournament team

So impressed with him.

Arnold is fantastic as well. Great on ice vision and always in the right position from what I've seen of him.

Game winner in the Beanpot championship in the last minutes of OT.

I believe both have said they are staying all 4 years.

Congrats on another convincing title...what a program on Chestnut Hill! I think BC is going to have to promoted to the AHL if they keep laying waste to everyone like they do.

How's the outloook for next year with departures?

I forgot to say my congrats to BC too. What I would like to know is how in the hell did your team lose 10 games? They were a machine in the playoffs.

I am not a big BC fan so my knowledge is minimal but Kreider signed so he will be gone.

and it looks like Almedia, Carey, Cross, Shea, Venti and Atkinson were the only seniors (the latter 2 players only played a combined 15 games)

but 4 of their top 6 scorers could return, Milner can return for another season, and 4 of their 6 regular defensemen are eligible to return (although i believe there was rumors Dumoulin would go pro)

When Parker Milner was in a funk, Billet played about 7 games and did not last long. He started OK but then faltered. BC had gone into a mid season slump since November into January. Milner was reinserted and gradually developed into a solid goalie spear heading BC through the 19 game winning streak and a national championship. At the time of Milner's reappearance and after the weekend losses to Maine in Orono, BC as a team started playing well together and did a typical run for them (19 straight wins) and carried over into the post season with tournament wins after another. (HE Tournament, NE Regional, and FF)

Next year could be a rebuilding year after losing so much to graduation and 2 juniors signing pro contracts.

Mullane, Arnold, MacLeod, Milner, Whitney, Hayes, etc will have to provide the leadership and try to get BC to win games and meld together with new players and the now experienced sophmores who have won a national championship as freshmen. Gaudreau leads this group as the rookie of the year.

They do have some talented defensemen coming in to replace Cross and Dumoulin. Begert only saw action in 1 game. Vatrano is suppose to have some skill and speed typical of a BC forward. Brendan Silk may be a 4th liner as his stock has fallen off.

I hope to see incoming Freshman Colin Sullivan get a regular shift, I know BC has several incoming Freshman D's but he's got some impressive mobility and it is a great skater. Either way though, good to see him going to a top program at least.

Unless I missed something, I believe BC does have Mike Matheson coming in too. And hopefully will be able to replace some of what left with Cross and Dumoulin.

I went to the banquet on Sunday and surprised they announced the captain and assistant captains for next season. The presentation and awards went well and everyone who had anything to do with the team was mentioned. They gave everyone a free souvenir puck and it was a nice way to end the season. Some players were not there because of commitments, like Kreider and Dumoulin signed on with their new clubs. I believe Kreider is already on the Rangers playoff roster.

Kreider is having an immediate impact on the Rangers. A goal and an assist today for their win over the Caps.

What will the D look like next year?

Cross and Shea are done. Possible that Dumoulin is gone too but not sure. Leaves, Alber, Begert, Wey and McLeod.

Who are the incoming freshmen that will start this year? Matheson, Piazza, Doherty and Jeke? Geez, that's a lot of people....
