And so the title defense starts. Boston College will face Union in the first round of their 2013 NCAA tournament title defense at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island with Quinnipiac and Canisius being the other two teams in the regional. This will be the first ever meeting between the Dutchmen (ECAC tournament champions) and the Eagles. I'm not going to get into a lot right now but I think it should be known that you have to be a great hockey team to make it to the NCAA's and although the Eagles may be thrilled with their draw, it doesn't mean that their opponent on Saturday night is any type of slouch. Union is a great hockey team that made the Frozen Four last season only to fall to Ferris State, the team BC beat to win it's 5th National Championship. BC did a lot of good things this weekend vs the Terriers and if it wasn't for a few bad bounces and a couple amazing saves from Maguire, I think BC would have won that game. Hopefully, the guys are able to figure out what they did wrong and can fix it up for Saturday's game.
As for Coach York, he is officially questionable for this weekend's game but I think there is a pretty good chance that we will see him behind the bench. He will have a doctors appointment tomorrow and it could be there where he will learn his status for Saturday's contest.
Go Eagles !!!
