One thing Coach York always talks about this time of year is “trophy season” and how you play for one thing and one thing only : trophies. This weekend, the Eagles will have a chance to claim it’s second trophy of the season with a couple wins over the Vermont Catamounts (they also need some help from PC and Maine). Anyways, like I said, the regular season trophy is nice and all but it’s not what guys strive for @ BC. If this team wants to have a chance at being a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament, two wins this weekend are absolutely necessary. There is no other way around it. Unlike last weekend where the Eagles were missing two of their best players, this weekend leaves no room for excuses. It’s win or no 1 seed, or even worse, no home ice. Let me get this out of the way because I know it’s probably all you are thinking about. Steven Whitney and Patrick Wey both practiced today, and should be good to go for this weekend. I’d say Wey is a definite go and Whitney is right on the fence, but certainly leaning towards probable. Obviously, having these two back would be a huge boost. Whenever you get the best offensive player in your league best on your club, it never hurts. Same goes for Wey because he is as solid and smart of a defenseman as BC has on it’s team. They need him really badly, I mean just look at how bad things were without him.
1. Grind it out. It’s never easy winning games on the road in this league but BC can do it if they play like they have in their past two roadies (@ MC and @ PC).
2. Got to find a way to execute better. The Eagles had a lot of chances to score early on in Saturday’s loss but they weren’t able to come through. BC has got to find a way to execute better tomorrow night.
