The tables got turned Saturday night as BU dropped a tight 2-1 decision to PC at Agganis Arena. BU played well enough to win the game but Providence goalie Jon Gillies played out of his mind in the third period to hold onto the win for the Friars. BU came out flat and played their worst period of the season in the first. They only trailed 1-0 but it could have been much worse without the play of Matt O'Connor. Both Providence goals were the results of failed breakouts by BU in their own end. Nick Roberto failed to clear a puck on the penalty kill which lead to the first goal and the second goal resulted from a Brandon Hickey turnover. BU played very well the last 30 minutes of the game but could only beat Gillies once(O'Regan powerplay goal) despite outshooting the Friars 34-16 the last two periods.
Overall, Saturday night's loss is disappointing but PC is a solid team in the league and hopefully this BU team learned that they cannot only play 30-40 minutes of the game and win. They look to rebound this Friday on a nationally televised game at Boston College(8pm NBC sports network). BC is coming off a split at Denver this past weekend but they are BC and they suck. We'll have more on that as we get close to puckdrop on Friday.
Below is a new section where we find idiots(mostly Canadians or BC fans) and their great reasons to hate on Jack Eichel
This Week in #DISRES9ECT
Fun Fact: Jack Eichel has won just one @hockey_east weekly award so far this season and it was for the week of exhibition games

Props to all involved hyping up Jack Eichel but if given the choice would you take Bobby Ryan over Sidney Crosby? #McDavid
