"This is like a giant UMass frat house right now. Beers are being eaten at an extraordinary amount. Like we are double fisting bud lights all over. And they are here to cheer on their Minutemen."

" Great crowd on hand, they are fired up and smashing beers."

Priceless...

A really tough loss!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In the end Mn had a bit more fire power. I still would rather have Cary as our coach! Odd, we were the last HE team in!

Pairwise predicted that Mid-west and West would dominate and so far they have. Only QU is left. UMass gave it a good run, and we all know that winning it all takes a great team and a lot of luck. We are not as good a team this year, especially on O.

It sure looks like no New England team in Final Four at the Garden, maybe QU who needs to beat a LOADED Michigan team= to get there. MIchigan easily handled UMass earlier in the season out there.

Lots to feel good about, successful season.

^
I agree with that sentiment and a 2nd Hockey East tourney title and NCAA bid is nothing to sneeze at. These teams out west are really good. Clearly it was a down year for Hockey East overall but at least the 3 teams that made the tourney all played competitive, one goal games.

Onto the offseason. I know Carvy will work hard to put a team out there that's going to be competitive nationally, not just in Hockey East.

This wasn't the most talented team we've had in the last few years but they have grit and I think they overachieved this year. Congrats on a HE Championship and trip to the dance. Don't forget to vote for Bobby.

BTW, the pre-game event at Wormtown Brewery was outstanding. The enthusiasm level was through the roof and there were more people there than any pre-game event I can recall.

Now let's see what kind of talent Coach Carvel can bring in to replace the players who are leaving. This will be an interesting off-season both for hockey and BB. We'll have lot's to post about.

^ I understand that the newcomers list for next year is mostly locked in, but it doesn't hurt - for the future - that Bucci keeps saying that UMass is "the place that everyone wants to play."
