What happened?? Boston College Hockey loses to Providence 5-1 at Conte Forum



That was embarassing. There is no way around it, especially at Conte Forum. Seriously!?!? A 5-1 loss to the Friars!?!?!?

I am really not much for talking about Providence scoring FIVE straight goals, breaking an 18 game winless streak against the Eagles. There is literally no point to it.

What we as Boston College fans must hope is that this is just an aberration and that the Eagles will kick it into gear by the time the NCAA tournament rolls around, but you never know. This could easily turn into another 2011 playoffs, with the lack of consistency the boys have been showing recently on the ice.

But Boston College faithful:please don’t fret!! Now I don’t want to get off on a rant here, but seeding literally doesn’t matter. If you are not meant to win the tournament, you won’t win it anywhere you’re placed. That is the bottom line. Do the New York Giants care about wherever they are ever placed in a playoff bracket? Heck to the no!! If you are so concerned about seeding, then your team can’t win. If you can’t win from the back of the pack, then you don’t deserve to win.

The basic thing we need to remember is that the Boston College Eagles WILL be in the NCAA tournament and I’m pretty sure they will do very well in the Hockey East tournament, if they don’t win it outright. I’ve got about as much faith in this team as George Michael would if he were to follow college hockey. We have a strong, strong squad, and I hear defenseman Patch Alber may be coming back in time for playoffs so we have that to look forward to.

So guys, don’t fret about this little downer and heed the words of Eddie Vedder. And if I hear one more person talk about pairwise rankings…………
