Boston College hockey failed to live up to expectations in 2013 (Western College Hockey Blog)
My take: Expectations were over-inflated based on the near perfect first half of the season and last year’s absurd 19-0-0 title run. There’s more than a little luck involved in winning a title under the current format (and yes, BC has been the recipient of that luck more often than not over the past 12-14 seasons) and the outcome of a single-elimination hockey tournament is not a referendum on the season. While Eagles fans expect a great deal from the program every year, this season can hardly be considered a failure.
