BU Loses Heartbreaker in Beanpot Final; Time to Get Back on the Horse

Man it feels like forever since I've posted on here. Thanks to QuackQuack and Mister Worldwide for picking up the slack while I focused on making you all laugh on twitter.

As you're all aware by this point, BU lost to BC in overtime last night, 3-2.  Billy Arnold scored the game winner with 6 seconds left in OT.  BU was paced by two goals from Garrett Noonan, his tenth and eleventh of the season.  BC received scoring from Pat Mullane, Chris Kreider, and the aforementioned Arnold. 

There's a lot that we could discuss from the game last night.  BC's penalty kill, BU's power play, refereeing, taking stupid penalties, giving up shorthanded goals, etc.  But at the end of the day, it all evens out.  It was a great hockey game.  Fans on both sides probably have things that they'd like to see their teams improve upon.  Both sides have stuff to be happy about (although admittedly there's more there for BC). 

If you're anything like us, you suffered no less than 3 minor heart attacks during the game last night and sunk into a deep state of depression at its conclusion.  But we woke up this morning and remembered this: it was only one game. A non-conference game at that. We're still 3rd in the Pairwise rankings, 2nd in Hockey East, 2nd in the country.  We have two huge conference games against Lowell this weekend, including a 7:30 pm tilt at Agganis on Saturday.  It's time to get back on the horse ladies and gentlemen.
