Friday Linkorama

Scott McLaughlin of The Daily Free Press previews tomorrow’s matchup with CCHA power Michigan and has updates on Grant Rollheiser and Ross Gaudet who have been inactive due to injuries.

USCHO’s Scott Weighart reports that sales of “Burn the Boats” have been strong. In addition to online availability, the books will be sold again at the Agganis Arena concession stand during tomorrow night's matchup with the Wolverines. Between 6 and 7 p.m., Scott will be signing copies of the book at a table near the concession stand. The books are selling for $17 each and $7 of each copy purchased at Agganis Arena will go to the BU hockey program.

NHL announcer Mike Emrick, a recipient of the Lester Patrick Award and the NHL Hall of Fame’s Foster Hewitt Memorial Award, is the narrator of Rival Films production of “The Battle of Commonwealth Avenue,” which documents the BU-BC rivalry. The program will air on NESN on November 25 and on the NHL Network in March. In the video clip below, Emrick talks about the ancient rivalry, the atmosphere at Walter Brown Arena and, in particular, a BU-BC game he called for CSTV in Dec. 2004, during the NHL lockout, which became Jack Parker’s 700th career win (video highlights).

Emrick did the visiting team play-by-play of last night’s Rangers-Devils game at Madison Square Garden. During the Rangers broadcast, Matt Gilroy was interviewed and video clips were shown of the game-tying goal against Miami in the NCAA final and of Gilroy’s parents, Frank and Peg, unfurling the NCAA championship banner on Oct. 10.

Looking back
Adrian Aucoin’s overtime goal last night pulled the Coyotes past the Redwings, 3-2, and earned the former BU blueliner first-star honors. Aucoin, who assisted on Phoenix’s first goal, carried the puck out of his end, crossed into the offensive zone and beat Chris Osgood with a 55-footer.

Colin Wilson made the scoresheet for a second night in a row, assisting on Nashville’s first goal in a 6-5 win against Ottawa.
