CAT PREDICTIONS

Falstaff was very quick to choose BC to win this game. He’s predicting a 5-1 BC win - he wants UNH to score one for the fish. Ugh.

Visit Falstaff and friends at the Gifford Cat Shelter, the nation’s oldest cageless, no-kill shelter, located near BC on Undine Road in Brighton. Make a new friend before tonight’s game!

SONG OF THE GAME

Jesper Mattila should be back for tonight, so this is a good excuse to share this Finnish version of Take Me Home, Country Roads that BCI discovered on the drive to Canada for World Juniors.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Every single year I go to UNH and every single year I hate it, even when BC wins. Please win, BC. (This is a winnable game.)
