Eagles vs. Bulldogs

And once it again it comes down to the BC Eagles versus a team of dogs — No, not those dogs from BU, but rather the Bulldogs of Minnesota-Duluth, who just so happen to be the defending NCAA Champions.

This particular matchup came Sunday night in the Northeast Regional Final of the NCAA Frozen Four tournament, with BC being the No. 1 overall seed at the DCU Center in Worcester. The defending champs didn’t really put up much of a fight, on the scoreboard anyway, as they were stuffed every step of the way en route to a 4-0 shutout by the Eagles.

BC moves on to the Frozen Four, which happens later this week in my old stomping grounds of Tampa, Fla.

Crosstown Chippiness

It’s well known in this town that there’s very little love lost between Boston University and Boston College. That rivalry is showcased in crystal clear fashion whenever their top flight hockey teams square off on the ice.

Their latest tilt took place Sunday night, with the visiting then-No. 16 Terriers taking on the then-No. 2 Eagles at Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill. Penalties, fights and goals — for BU, anyway — were plentiful as BU cruised to a lopsided 5-0 win.

Lord Stanley Visits Fenway

As many people were chanting a few weeks ago in Boston, “We got the Cup!” So as part of the 100-day celebration with the Stanley Cup, the Bruins made a quick stop at Fenway Park to show off their new hardware with the Red Sox and their fans.

Here are a few photos from the pregame festivities:
