    Tough loss. Lil figures the reason it didn't turn out well was Gumby wasn't in the stands and the Easy Button was missing. they better get on it next game!
    Not only is Hoc East wide open, the entire nation is wide open. There are new #1's after every weekend. I'd have to say any of the top 5 teams in HE could win the conferance playoffs, and any team in the top 10 in the nation could win a national title. This is the way college hoc. should be. It's gonna come down to whoever is playing best and getting the best goaltending at the end of the year and in the NCAA's. Maine and Lowell are obviously in that mix.

      Why they didn't give Diamond a penalty I'll never know. That PP resulted in the game winning goal. Oh well, on to BU.

      But PLEASE don't sit there and act like Diamond isn't a cheap scumbag thug, especially when we all witnessed it tonight in living color.
      Easy up guy. Diamond is a different player, he doesn't take dumb penalties anymore, he might be "dirty" but what player isn't? Would you want him on your team? If you don't answer yes you're lying.

        Yes have fun with that and I believe the record falls to 10-3.

          No, it's 10-2. They lost to BC and Maine at home, that's it.

            Thanks for chiming in. Diamond is a different player from the beginning of the year. Those of us who have seen him in every game know that. No more embellishment calls on him either.

              By a combined score of 10-1.

                Really tough loss last night. I think having dominated the game but giving up the first goal killed Lowell a bit. They did respond with the tying goal eventually, but taking a bad penalty did come back and hurt this team. And yes, I was reminded once again why I hate Diamond.

                  correct, forget you lost to UConn in Nashua, not in your barn. You guys have a great team, im sure Lowell could make a deep run in the tourny. Doug Carr is a great goalie. Good luck rest of the season.

                      I thought the River Hawks played decently last night but simply failed to cash in on their half dozen chances that I saw either hit crossbars, into Sullivan's breadbasket, hop over sticks, or was just "this much" off. The passing that was wonderful during the Merrimack game was simply a bit off, especially during the second and third periods. It was a physical game and Maine simply trapped their way to victory; they were the aggressors in the second and third periods, and I think simply that they were the team that was the more desperate of the two. Maine's third and fourth lines were the difference makers; while the top line of Abbott, Flynn, and rat-bastard Diamond were held in check, the remaining three lines were a hair better than Lowell. Mangene was everywhere last night and had a really good game. The third period reminded me of the third period of the Providence game where Maine held three/four/even five guys back. Sure, Maine's power play did score the GW goal, but it was a better discilpine and a more physical prowess that won them the game. Lowell to me simply ran out of the emotional gas after defeating Merrimack on the previous eveving. It was a concern of mine even before the series to face them and Maine in the same weekend, but at least we got the most important game in my mind.

                      I'm somewhat disappointed with my city last night as a whole last night. For the past 16 years, this city has been itching at the trigger to have a team that is at and/or near the top of the Hockey East standings this time of the year. Don't get me wrong, I'm not talking about the students here, this is more in-line with the community response. There was a noticeable difference in atmosphere between the Merrimack game Friday to the Maine game last night. I'm sorry -- 4600 people (with at least 1/4 to 1/3 Maine fans) simply doesn't cut it for a first place team that had shattered all expectations. They are and have been winning for the majority of the year and the Mill City has an opportunity to redeem itself mightly on Friday. Anything under 6000K for that one would be unquestionably a sad story to report. The River Hawks have answered the bell all year long after tough losses....it's time for the city to do the same thing on Friday with BU in undoubtably the biggest game this town has seen since that cold January evening in North Billerica in 1996.

                        Good post John. Agree, it would be nice to get 6,000 in the Tsongas Friday night. The students are doing their part. Hopefully Chaz /The Sun will start building this series up in the press by mid week for a change . This is a huge weekend for the program.

                        Also, I hope they fix the scoreboard, I'm not sure what the problem is but it's been going on for several games now. I saw Marty at the Maine game, I'm sure he can be happy with it.

                          Agreed....that really needs to be addressed. I'm sure it's interfering with concerts and stuff too.

                            They also only had one camera working the crowd. That made a huge difference. I was dying to see what the chick with the yellow large thing was wearing but never did because the camera was on her and off in a flash. WHen they had the 2 cameras for Fri nights game they showed more inbetween play. I really love that part. It makes a huge difference to the atmosphere. One guy can't be everywhere.

                              Lowell has come a long way with their fan support though.

                                It's fun to see what the students come up with each game now. More and more are dressing up which makes it fun. The guy with the beard who was wearing the evening dress on Friday was funny. I also loved the noise they made at the end of the Maine game when Lowell was trying to tie it. Great job!!
