    Ahh screw it. A good team deals with it, and while I didn't agree with many of the calls tonight, this team just dealt with the calls and instead of complaining and *****ing (hint hint) ... walked away with yet another win.

    18-7. Second place in Hockey East. This doesn't suck.

      I stayed home due to illness tonight so I watched the game on TV. I didn't have any problems with the officiating tonight; most of Lowell's penalties were legit (the only one I questioned was Reynolds flopping down, but that's it). Holmstrom was clearly in the crease for a second and half before the puck arrived. Granted, the play should have been whistled dead before going to instant replay. You give any team that many power play chances and it's going to bite you. Just a very undisciplined game by the River Hawks; they have a week's time to clean that up going into games with Merrimack, Maine and BU over the next six games. They did chase Vazzano out of the game early with two Mike Lange highlight-reel goals (Ruhwedel - beat him like a rented mule, Wallin -- smoked him like a bad cigar), took advantage of a key power plays, and held Vermont in-check for most of the game until the end. The ending was directly attributed to those power plays and they gave Vermont a chance to get back into the game.

      I believe they mentioned this is the biggest yearly turnaround in school history and the longest winning streak in Tsongas Arena history.

      Second place on February 4th....WOW

        My only complaint with the blow down is that it doesn't seem to me they call it unless it matters. If they want to call his proximity to play as that, fine. But in that case I'm not sure why that review went so long.

          The review took a long time because they wanted to make sure that deliberate contact was not made by the Vermont defender to push Holmstrom into the crease. I saw a lot of incidental contact on the play and thought Holmstrom did freely skate into the crease. Also, I felt that Holmstrom did screen the goalie's ability to make the save while in the crease and by rule, that's no goal. Personally, the NHL/NCAA rule is written poorly and it should go back to the IIHF, if you are in the blue paint, it's blown dead; otherwise, get rid of the crease. It's Rule 6-29-c if you're that interested and it's a judgement call by the referee. I also had thought that in the NCAA, if you are on the attacking power play team, any crease violation is automatically blown dead. However, I can't find this rule in the book.

            I thought it looked like Holmstrom was in the crease, but had no way to get himself out because he was pushed towards the net and over to Madore. only sucks because it took a goal away from the soon to be ROTY, but Lowell still came through with a PP goal.

              Watch out UML fans. Steve Capraro is now a linesman for Hockey East. He worked both games in Maine this weekend.

                      Scott Wilson's weekend has now put him in the lead in rookie scoring in Hockey East, and he's #9 overall in the league in points with 19 (in 18 games).

                      After this weekend, Lowell has already scored more goals than they did all of last year.

                          It was just total disrespect by NESN. The description of the game was Lowell @ UVM from the Gutt as well. Caron doesn't know how to pronounce Ruhwedel's name.
