Winning a sports championship gives one a feeling of triumph akin to getting all A's on a report card or in a bowl of Alpha-Bits cereal. Cheer on an A-worthy title attempt with this GrouponLive deal to see the Boston College Eagles men's hockey team play in the 2012 Hockey East tournament quarterfinals at Conte Forum. Opponents and start times for quarterfinal games have yet to be determined, but details for each will be outlined here on March 5. Groupon customers will receive the best available seating at the time of redemption.
BC is coming off a weekend that saw them lose to and tie a team that was playing without their head coach. They’ve given up a total of 15 goals in their last 3 games, well above their average. And they were just knocked off their perch atop the national rankings. Meanwhile UMass had a Merrimack team, which took the season series from BC, on the ropes on Friday only to let a win slip through their fingers. They bounced back on Saturday with a superb defensive effort that allowed them to remain in the game until the end with a chance to tie or win even though it was played in one of their personal house of horrors.
Now all that’s not to say I’m making any bold predictions for this weekend, but perhaps there is an opportunity for the Minutemen here.
