    This again is assuming other things break our way. Here's to hoping.
    Pat? Any legit hope of us still being east?

      Very little chance UML stays local if both Maine and BU are two seeds.

        Here's a not-unrealistic scenario that has Lowell end up at #8 in the PWR, likely in Worcester (with BC as #1 overall).

        You have specified the following tournament results:

        WCHA Play-in #2: Michigan Tech defeats Denver.
        WCHA Play-in #1: North Dakota defeats St. Cloud State.
        WCHA Semifinal #2: Minnesota-Duluth defeats Michigan Tech.
        WCHA Semifinal #1: Minnesota defeats North Dakota.
        WCHA Championship game: Minnesota-Duluth defeats Minnesota.
        Hockey East Semifinal #2: Boston University defeats Maine.
        Hockey East Semifinal #1: Boston College defeats Providence.
        Hockey East Championship game: Boston College defeats Boston University.
        ECAC Semifinal #2: Harvard defeats Cornell.
        ECAC Semifinal #1: Union defeats Colgate.
        ECAC Championship game: Union defeats Harvard.
        ECAC Consolation game: Cornell defeats Colgate.
        CCHA Semifinal #2: Miami defeats Western Michigan.
        CCHA Semifinal #1: Michigan defeats Bowling Green.
        CCHA Championship game: Michigan defeats Miami.
        CCHA Consolation game: Western Michigan defeats Bowling Green.
        Atlantic Hockey Semifinal #2: RIT defeats Niagara.
        Atlantic Hockey Semifinal #1: Air Force defeats Mercyhurst.
        Atlantic Hockey Championship game: Air Force defeats RIT.

          No one should be forced to root for BC. Unless you're a BC fan. Of course.

            They said it's open to everyone ... so I don't feel bad passing this on.

            Lowell will be hosting a watch party on Sunday starting at 11:30 to 1pm at the SportsZone in Dracut for NCAA Selection Sunday. Just let Scott Donnelly know if you're coming, so they can keep a count. They'll have some complimentary apps as well.

            Count me in!

              Of course! Figuring it out is another matter. There are just too many scenarios to work out.

              A few rules... Being opposite of Minnesota will send us west. Being a 4 seed will likely send us west if the CCHA gets 2 #1s and 2#4s.

              As it stands, I'd say going west is more likely than not just due to team placement and our poor travel habits. If bridgeport looks spectacularly weak you may see a swap.

              We have more than a few things against us... But it is certainly not out of the question.

              Edit: based on some look-ins I've done I'd say 2-1 or 3-1 against staying east. I will admit that I do want to go west... I know that's not helpful in the slightest for fans but Bridgeport looks like the opposite of fun and it looks like Worcester has gotten a lot worse in the last decade. If either had a good downtown next to the arena for pre-game post-game I wouldn't mind either.

              Doing some inspection I liked what I saw on the other side of 190 from DCU... Shrewsbury street I think... Place with a lot of beer and what looks like good food. 0.6 mile walk to DCU
