As for the Saturday NIGHT game(not a 4:00 game so the old guys on USCHO will need something else to complain about), BU plays Wisconsin who is not good. Their coach, Mike Eaves, is a dead man walking this season. Any player who commits there for the future better have no other D-1 offers because I would rather play basically anywhere else(besides UAH or BC) until there is a new coach in place. They are 0-0-2 after coming off two ties to Northern Michigan last weekend at home. Wisconsin's one decent player is forward Cameron Hughes but the rest of the team, especially the defense is garbage. BU just needs to play their game and get decent goaltending and they will win the game no problem and get back to .500 on the season. Expect a few goals from the top two lines who played pretty well but were hold scoreless against Union. Ahti already has 6 shots on goal. He will take atleast another 6 on Saturday and based on his historical shooting percentage. One of those is going to go in. BU wins on Saturday 5-1.
Roberto will miss both games this weekend. Still a coach's decision. Fortunato will play, however.— Boston Hockey Blog (@BOShockeyblog) October 15, 2015
