Ultimate road trip for the Shattenkirks

While BU fans from New England and the tri-state area were making a bee-line to Madison Square Garden on Saturday evening, Kevin Shattenkirk's parents, Pat and Barbara, had an afternoon stop on their itinerary. With CSTV.com Rink Rat Elliott Olshansky bumming a ride, they first headed to Quinnipiac in Meriden, Conn., to watch their older son, Keith, skate for Princeton in a 4-2 win against the Bobcats before racing down to Manhattan for Red Hot Hockey at MSG. Olshansky’s chronicle of the road trip, with three video interviews sprinkled in, is found in his latest blog entry.

CSTV.com also has posted video highlights showing four of BU’s six goals against The Big Red.

Parker and York to guest as “Hockey on Campus” returns
WWZN-AM (1510-The Zone) will again air “Hockey on Campus,” a two-hour, weekly program on local anad regional college hockey, hosted by longtime Terrier play-by-play voice Bernie Corbett and Paul McNamara. The 2007-08 season for the drive-time program begins tomorrow, Nov. 28.

The first program, beginning at 5 P.M. will be a live remote from T’s Pub on Commonwealth Avenue. At 6:00 p.m., Coach Jack Parker and one or two of the Terriers, will arrive at T’s and join Bernie and Paul. BC Coach Jerry York will be a phone-in guest at 6:30 p.m. The program also is accessible on the WWZN Web site.

Back to CSTV.com which today held a Writer's 'Roundtable discussion about the season to date. The full transcript is here and we’ve culled out a few of the BU-related comments.

Brandon Thomas, Ithaca Journal: If Brett Bennett continues to play like he did Saturday, BU won't have many problems. For a game with nine goals, there was some great goaltending at MSG.
Dave Starman, CSTV: You are very correct...Scrivens would love to have (Joe) Pereria's goal back, that was the weak link and it opened the flood gates.
Dave Starman: BU looked like Cornell in their approach...attack the net and shoot when possible.

Dave Starman: Offensive minded defensemen can change a game. One of the best was Peter Harrold at BC. Then again, name me a better offensive defensemen than Matt Gilroy, and he will continue to improve because his instincts are just so good.
Brandon Thomas: Matt Gilroy was fantastic on Saturday.
Dave Starman: Gilroy spends more time in front of the other net than his and yet he's a very good defenseman.

Starman also included Colin Wilson among the top freshmen he’s seen this season.
