CHESTNUT HILL - Boston College's mens hockey team didn't put forth its best effort in Friday night's loss to the No. 3 ranked Denver Pioneers in their home opener at Conte Forum, but you wouldn't have known it based on the crowd.
The Superfans showed up in full force (attendance was announced at 7,884 - the fourth straight sellout for BC hockey) for the game and were as loud as could be throughout the entire night, supporting their hockey team with a true passion that hasn't been seen around a Boston College sporting event in quite some time.
But don't take my word for it, just ask Eagles head coach Jerry York and Kevin Hayes.
"The atmosphere was as loud and as [good of a] college hockey atmospheres that we've had here in a long time," York said in his postgame press conference. "It was a terrific place to play."
Said Hayes, "It was a great crowd, it was the best crowd I've ever played in front of."
Boston College won't play in front of its loyal fans again until next Friday night when it hosts the University of Massachusetts, but if this was any indicator, the Superfans should be out in mass then as well.
