  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Boston College Hockey: #1

Riding a 10-game unbeaten streak, the Boston College Men's Ice Hockey team is now ranked #1 in all national polls and has a commanding lead atop the Hockey East standings. More importantly, the team has been holding onto its prominent position on the homepage of ESPN.com for two days now, which is a pretty impressive feat for a college hockey program. Full article here. Additionally, the Eagles dominate the USCHO.com homepage, and even made it onto The Eagle in Atlanta (they're doing that well).

Jerry York

Today (Tuesday, January 24) at 1:00 p.m. ET, Eagles coach Jerry York will be available for an online chat at CSTV.com. York recently received a contract extension that will keep him in his current position as head coach through the 2010-11 season. York is presently first among Division I active coaches with 739 wins and has led the Eagles to four Hockey East regular-season titles, four Hockey East tournament titles, five Frozen Four appearances, and one national championship in his twelve years at BC.

Cory Schneider

BC goaltender Cory Schneider earned Hockey East Co-Player of the Week while in the midst of a record-breaking shutout steak. This past weekend, Schneider re-welcomed Vermont to Hockey East by shutting the Catamounts out in consecutive nights at Conte Forum, 2-0 and 3-0. Schneider stopped 55 shots this weekend, including one absolutely unbelievable sprawling stop on a clean breakaway by UVM's Corey Carlson that provided the highlight of the weekend.

In his last 7 games, Schneider has a GAA of 0.43 and an overall save % of .984. He has now had five Hockey East shutouts this season, a conference record (he is now tied with former Eagle and current NHLer Scott Clemmensen for the school record for shutouts in one season).

He has not allowed a goal in 217 minutes and 49 seconds, the second-longest streak in BC history. In his last seven games, Schneider is 7-0-0 with a 0.43 goals against average and a .984 save percentage.

Schneider's consecutive scoreless minutes streak has now reached 217:49, putting him 36:35 away from setting a school record for consecutive shutout minutes.

Brian Gionta

There is an NHL.com article about how short, but yet how good, Brian Gionta is. The column recalls Gionta's BC days, yet overlooked his mind-blowing 5-goals-in-one-period performance against the University of Maine on January 27, 2001.

That was one nasty save.
