Sounds funny to say but today, I am rooting Brown, The FLAGSHIP and Providence.

UNH winning out of conference is good for us fwiw. Hoping for decent ice at Fenway so as no injuries

It will be interesting to see how Providence plays. They took 3 out 4 points from Denver last weekend. Lowell will see them in two weeks.

I wonder if the start time for Saturday's game at Amherst will be moved to an earlier start due to the Pats game. It looks like some of the other HE games are now being played earlier.

I'm a bit surprised it hasn't been already.

Agree. Both teams are off Friday night and UMass doesn't have a basketball game scheduled for Saturday afternoon.

Denver missing Terry and Borgstrom both nights due to WJC and Gambrell on Friday due to suspension. Two wins that will likely bolster HE PWR but not necessarily good wins in a vacuum. PC definitely benefited from the timing of that match-up, and the fact that Denver boasts very little forward offense outside of those three...

Wasn't PC also down a couple players?

And Foley for the USA.

PC was missing 8 goals and 18 points, while Denver was missing 28 goals and 64 points. As someone who has seen Denver quite a bit this year - I think it would surprise most people to learn how average they have been offensively. And without those three, they are EXTREMELY limited...

Denver is still solid with a stable of strong skating defensive forwards, a great D and two top of the line goalies - and I'd only expect PC to get better in the second half - but it's certainly not the DU team BU saw, for example...

Thanks, forgot about Foley. Expecting a very tough series with the Friars in a couple of weeks.

The games vs Providence are always tough. Numerous games vs them have gone to OT in the past.

Only 2 of the last 17 games between these teams have gone to OT, and that includes the 3OT game at the Garden the last time they met. And before you ask, only 5 of those 17 were 1-goal games. The majority of the games vs PC since Norm has taken over have been decided by 2-3 goals (or more). Lowell is just 9-8-0 vs PC under Norm.

I like that it's "is just 9-8-0..." :)

Means we've been doing a lot of winning!

There's only 3 teams that Lowell has faced at least 5 times under Norm where they have a losing record:

Connecticut 3-5-1
Boston College 4-7-2
Quinnipiac 1-3-1

Overall, they are 138-62-21 since Norm took over. The 138 wins over that span is the 4th most in the nation, behind BC, North Dakota, and Quinnipiac. So yes, they've been doing a lot of winning.

I've been told that the game time for Saturday will not be changing.

Poor decision. Mullins will be even emptier than usual.
