Kieran Millan is back. After posting a disappointing .857 save percentage ‘-’- compared to his .921 clip last season ‘-’- in the Boston University men’s hockey team’s first two regular-season games, the sophomore netminder announced his return to 2008-09 form in a big way in BU’s 3-2 win over the University of Michigan on Saturday night.
If the No. 9 Boston University women’s ice hockey team’s season thus far could be expressed in a mathematical equation, the resulting formula would be ‘BU is greater than or equal to its opponents.’
Boston University men’s hockey coach Jack Parker said he wasn’t surprised to see his team come out flat in Tuesday’s 3-0 loss to the No. 9/10 University of Notre Dame because his players ‘weren’t all that jacked up’ for the two practices leading up to the game.
Anytime a team dresses four new players for the first time as the Boston Bruins did last night, it’s going to take time for players to get comfortable with their new linemates. In last night’s 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators, it took the Bruins exactly one period.
Colin Wilson tried to treat Wednesday’s game as if it were no different than any other. He knew plenty of attention would surround his return to Boston, where the Nashville Predators forward starred at Boston University the past two seasons. But Wilson had no interest in putting added pressure on himself, even with a host of ex-teammates and supporters in attendance at TD Garden.
