A victory tonight, and BC captures its third national championship in the past five years — something that hasn't happened since Denver won in 1958, 1960 and 1961.
Yeah, that pretty much makes you the baddest cat in the alley.
Tomorrow night, BC will don their gold throwback jerseys & FSU will wear their maroon jerseys for a true maroon and gold match-up #BCFrozen4
York says that #BC and #Minnesota have tentatively agreed on a four-year game schedule. #FrozenFour
When we look at Air Force, and do some research on the (Falcons), Frank (Serratore) has had some really tremendous efforts in recent NCAA games," said York. "You look at their win against Michigan, 2-0, (in 2009), their loss against Vermont in double OT (in 2009), the loss to Miami in OT (3-2, in 2008), it's remarkable how close they've been to Frozen Fours. So they have our attention."
"Our whole team understands, this is a national tournament," said York. "You've got 16 teams; they're the elite teams in college hockey. And the best team wins on that particular night. We understand. We've gone deep into the tournament, we've won national tournaments, and we've also lost first games. So we're ready for Air Force. If they beat us on Friday, they're just the better team than we are that night. It won't be because we're not ready."
What you have to understand about the Eagles is that their raison d'être from the time the calendar flips over to February is winning, and winning by embarrassing margins. Last weekend, they collected their third straight Hockey East title, and fifth in the last six years. And where last year's eight-game streak into the national dance looks impressive, it's dwarfed by this season's run of 15.
Yes, 15. Really.
