Wasn’t expecting the win but I’m more than happy to get the W! 8)

Off to a good start in game 2 of the series. Up 1-0 at the end of 1 with a goal in the first minute of play.

is there a way to watch this game without paying a fee ? Can not believe this game is not being covered by NESN ?

I think the only way to watch is ESPN+

Up 2-0 after 2.

Got ESPN+ for the first time because I had hope for football. :)

But holy crap, these two wins were spectacular!! Two games, two goals, and both of those were desperation, pull the goalie moves. Way to go, guys!!

Indeed! Terrific defense and goal tending.

What a weekend!!! Was not expecting this at all. Pavicich is the real deal!

Hockey East signed a long term deal with ESPN+, looks like NESN isn't involved anymore.

No, NESN very much involved. ESPN+ televises every game for the home team that isn't on NESN/NESN+. This is the way the ECAC has been over the last several years and they just reupped last season through 2028-29.

That was great fun last night. The student support is great to see. It’s nuts that we have an all-freshman line solid enough for Carvy to keep them out there against this level of competition.

FYI , it’s the only line with three (3) NHL draft picks.

Wow! We swept Denver!! :D :D it was two great nights at the Mullins Center. The crowd, especially the first night, was unbelievable.

I thought this was going to be a rebuilding year as we lost a lot from last years team. Plus who was going to be the goal tender? Problem solved! But it will be a long , competitive season in Hockey East

Denver's a really good team. Great speed and puck handling, but our team played great!

Awesome weekend for pucks.

1. We have a goalie. 73 saves on 75 shots is phenomenal.
2. An all freshman line that held their own against #1 is almost unheard of, even if they are draft picks.
3. 13,500 for the 2 games and that does make a difference. We need to get 4,500 a game for BB to see how it changes the atmosphere.
