The Daily Collegian has a look at this weekend’s games.   A separate story says the Minutemen are out to avenge the embarrassing loss at Agganis earlier this month.

Kevin Shattenkirk says BU will not be looking past UMass to next week’s Beanpot.

The player just behind Casey Wellman as the national leader in goals also has a Western Mass connection.

USCHO has the Minutemen heading west in their latest edition of bracketology.

Credit to Wardy over on UMasshoops for finding this humorous article on Jon Quick and his sleeping habits.  No mention of how he sings to himself when the puck is on the other end of the ice however.  It mentions in the article that Quick’s Olympic mask was delivered to him prior to his game against the Maple Leafs.  I haven’t been able to find a picture of it yet but here’s an article on the creation of Ryan Miller’s, complete with photo.

    Best pre game drinking spot near BU?

    I loved the old T’s pub, but the new 937 comm seems a bit too trendy…yuppyish.

    a few decent restaurants that i know of, carlos and sunset…anyone got a hidden gem?

    looking for a bar.


    • As a beer snob I always end up at Sunset Cantina due to their beer selection. That’s too bad about 973 Comm, I loved it as T’s but haven’t been to its new form yet.

      Beyond those two I haven’t found too many places without getting more into Allston, Brighton, or Brookline.

    sunset is solid…white horse is another option, but kinda far. T’s was great because you could walk there.
