TGIF

It’s not just Terrier fans who think John Curry should be a Hobey Baker Award winner--certainly a finalist. Curry’s MVP and record-setting Beanpot performance has vaulted him to the top of the INCH Hobey Tracker. INCH's weekly podcast devotes considerable time to Curry's performance and his chances of winning the Hobey. USCHO writer Scott Weighart also casts his votes for the Terrier netminder to be a finalist.

And speaking of the Hobey Baker Award, if you want to own the latest in college hockey collectibles, a minature Hobey can be yours for just $195 plus shipping.

A good read from CSTV.com Rink Rat Elliott Olshansky on the strong defenses and goaltending throughout Hockey East.

Blog readers in the New York/New Jersey area are in for a rare treat as both games against UNH are being televised locally--depending upon your cable provider. SportsNet New York will carry tonight's NESN broadcast and CN8 Atlantic Region is carrying tomorrow game which also is on CN8 New England.

USHR reported today on the ice hockey results at this year's Asian Games. Kazakhstan, which played in last year’s Olympics, squeezed past Thailand….by a 52-1 margin, outshooting the Thais by a 91-7 count. The Kazakhis then roughed up United Arab Emirates, 38-0, and China 17-1. But the steamroller busted a gear in the semis and was upset by Japan, 3-2.

The answer to the trivia question about Darryl Abbott's distinction (see Looking Back-BU-Cornell 2OT Tie) is that he was the only Terrier hockey player to also serve as student body president (at least according to my sources).

Without looking at the BU stats online, which players currently rank first and second on the team in +/- ?

I'll guess Schaeffer and Popko.

No, it's Gilroy and Higgins.
