Last week the Eagles got two out of four points on a very difficult road trip to New Hampshire and Providence. This week, hopefully, the Eagles will get a bit of a reprieve with a home-and-home against UConn.
Shooting Percentage: BC 8.6% (No. 39), UConn 11.1% (No. 19)
PP/PK Split: BC 12.9%, 73.5%, UConn: 5.9%, 77.3%
Average Age: BC 20.11, UConn 21.4
Breaking Down the Game
- Continuing to stay out of the penalty box: I’ll preface this point by saying that UConn’s power play, clearly, is not the most potent we’ve seen, but we did see David Cotton take a five minute major at a rather pivotal moment of BC’s game last week against Providence. While we’ll haggle over whether the penalty should have been called, the fact remains a penalty almost proved catastrophic for the Eagles. Don’t give UConn an opportunity to get chances.
- Cutting down on chances: UConn is not a team that dominates in Corsi, but their shooting percentage is one of the best in the country. The Eagles would do well to limit chances.
- Get four points: These are games the Eagles should win.
