Happy - To Be A Boston College Eagle

140 students, faculty, staff and alumni. 32 locations around campus. Six days. We hope you're as happy watching as all of us were filming Boston College's take on Pharrell Williams' Oscar-nominated song "Happy".

Johnny Gaudreau

His team is 24-4-3 through 31 games, ranked #1 in the country.   His stats are amazing:

Goals     27
Assists   34
Points    61

He is as close to a slam dunk to win the Hobey Baker award as I have seen.  

Not to be overshadowed, look at the stats of Johnny's linemates:

Kevin Hayes    22 goals
                        28 assists
                        50 points

Bill Arnold       12 goals
                       32 assists
                       44 points

This might be the best line I have seen since the Reasoner-Gionta-Powers line back in 1998 or the Gibbons-Atkinson-Whitney line in 2010.

We are in for a fun ride over the next 2 months of the season. 

Go Eagles!

Dick Kelley

I love Boston College with my whole heart and soul.   But nobody loved BC more than Dick Kelley.   It was so sad to see him suffer over the last 2+ years but he never quit fighting and serving the University he so loved.   Here is a great column by a former Heights sports reporter that shares some wonderful stories of Dick:

BC vs BU - Beanpot Highlights

Demko was outstanding.   Check out the save made at the end of the game before BC got the empty net goal.
