Berisha and Marin in the lineup with Campbell and Panico out.

Lowell 1-0 after one with 5 shots on goal.

I forgot how much I hate this obnoxious dump.

3-0 Lowell after two. They haven't looked great. Going to need to tighten it up in the third and find a whole new level for next week against BC.

Much better than my last experience here ca. 2001 though. At least we won't need a police escort to provide security this time when we leave. Although there's still 14 minutes left to go...

Every time I listen to Jim interview Carvel he gets easier to hate.

I wasn't impressed with his post game interview last week. Not sure what all the hype is about. Since I've been following college hockey, SLU (and Clarkson) start each season strong and fade out second half. UMA definitely has some good recruits in the pipeline. I guess we'll see if Carvel can coach too.

If his attitude bleeds to his players I think we have nothing to worry about

somebody inside the league, per their coach, said that "that penalty shouldn't have been a penalty much less a five minute major"... you guys saw it, I didn't.

What a whiny twit.

mr les said it was way nasty. For him to comment at all means it was a nasty hit

Penn State suffered a devastating loss to Minnesota, so Lowell regains a pairwise slot they dropped earlier in the evening. Still at 8th with 3 more undecided games. It looks like it will take 2 pts next weekend to secure a bye unless the unimaginable happens and zoo mass can do something vs Providence. Zero or 1 point and I think we are out of the top 4. 4th place will most likely match us with Providence in the quarters after they beat zoo mass 4 times. That's a rough proposition. So let's beat up on BC. BIG home and home next week.

I watch the end of that game. What a crazy ending, tough loss for PSU.

2 points is not enough without help.

If Lowell takes 3+ points from BC, they get a bye no matter what.
If Lowell splits with BC, they need 1 of the following to happen to get a bye:

1. Providence does NOT sweep UMass
or
2. BU takes 3+ points from Notre Dame
or
3. Notre Dame sweeps BU

Lowell can get the #1 seed if they sweep BC and one of the following happens (assuming I did all the tiebreakers properly):

1. BU/Notre Dame split
or
2. Notre Dame takes 3 points from BU

Just watched the highlights. Ending was definitely crazy. PSU exposed once they started to play some decent teams.

BTW, Amherst's highlights are pretty bad. Messy editing and the camera work is lacking most of the time, lagging behind goals, etc. Glad they woke up halfway through the second period though, was getting nervous early on when they only had 5 shots total midway through the second. Need to be on top of their game though for BC and if the pattern continues, that should be the case (playing down vs. playing up to opponents).

You're right. My bad. I thought PC had 22 pts. If BU and ND split, Lowell could be left out with 27 pts. OK let's get 4 pts.

Unless I missed someone, the last time a Lowell player hit 40 points in a season was 03/04 with Elias Godoy. Both Gamby and CJ have hit that mark this year. I didn't go back further than 03/04 to see when the last time two of our players did that in the same year.

What was scary going back the past decade plus ... one year Tejchma led the team with 21 points. Yikes.

Yes, some of those were lean years.

You have to go back all the way to the 1995-96 season to find two players with at least 40 points in a season. That year Lowell actually had five players do it -

Brendan Concannon (23-39-62)
Christian Sbrocca (17-42-59)
Jeff Daw (23-28-51)
Neil Donovan (23-20-43)
Jon Mahoney (21-20-41)

And a sixth, Ed Campbell, was 2 points away at 38. That team had some serious firepower right down the line. Even the goalies got into the act with Marty Fillion and Craig Lindsay having 5 and 4 assists respectively.

I can't wait for the games this week.

Interesting to note, last year, the same 5 teams were competing for the bye. The split against BC is what got us the bye (and pushed BU to fifth).

A reminder:

#1 BC and #4 Lowell, home and home.
#2 BU and #3 Notre Dame, two at BU
#5 PC and #12 UMass, home and home
#6 UVM and #7 Merrimack, two at UVM

I added UVM since they can actually still surpass us.

The best seed possible for Lowell is 1st, the worst is 6th. With only two games left, that's a huge gap in seedings.

Of course, if we finish fourth, we play PC most likely in the second round, and I don't think anyone wants to see that. Finishing third would most likely get us UVM.
