Still Confused

Here's something to ponder on your  rainy Wednesday evening: BU is 3-1-0 against ranked teams they are 1-3-1 against unranked teams.

BU beat UNH, who at the time was ranked in the top 20. BU then went on to lose to Providence, beat number three Denver and lose to Holy Cross. BU then picked up their lone win against an unranked team, UMass, in a home and home series. Then there was the fiasco in Lowell, and finally BU lost their only game to a ranked team, so far against Merrimack. They then followed that up with a five nothing shut out of Boston College (that always fun to say).

Confused on why BU can only beat good teams? Yeah so am I.

BU faces two unranked opponents this weekend as Vermont and New Hampshire visit Agganis on Friday and Saturday respectively. Hopefully BU takes both teams seriously and comes away with four points. Vermont and UNH actually played each other last weekend and skated to a 4-4 draw. To state the obvious,  both schools are pretty equal. BU clearly has the ability to play with any team in the country, but to be able to do that in March in the NCAA's, the Terriers need to buckle down and start rolling off some wins in a row. Theres no better time to do that than this weekend with two league opponets coming to town.

In Other News
BU reseved a verbal commitment from The USA U18's Matt Lane. According to the Terrier Hockey Fan Blog, Lane will be on campus next fall. He is listed as 5-9, 178 pound forward who calls Rochester New York home.
