      Won't make it to Bridgeport, I will be listening and cheering on though!

      Hell, I'll probably wear my jersey to work on Friday just because.

        I already fired off a nasty-gram to their corrections link. Doubt it'll make a difference.

            No, but I suspect there will be one somewhere.

              I wonder if the Sports Zone in Dracut will host it? .. or maybe the Brewery in Lowell.

                  Am I the only one concerned that Miami's size and physicality could make them a very tough draw? Lowell has struggled this year against teams that fit that description

                    Hell, they barely even mention Lowell.
                    The second game of the day Friday in Bridgeport is No. 2 seed Miami (Ohio) against third-seeded UMass-Lowell. The RedHawks are led by the leading goal-scorer in the tournament, Dallas Stars prospect Reilly Smith, who has 30 goals in 38 games. Miami also has New York native and Buffalo Sabres prospect Connor Knapp, a senior goaltender who leads the NCAA with a 1.59 goals against average and sports the best save percentage of guys in the tournament at .937.
                    That's all there is.

                    I was at the BeerWorks on Saturday, and they said they'd be happy to put the games on.

                    Agreed. That definitely scares me.

                        Agreed. Glancing at some of their stats on uscho they seem stat-wise to be along the lines the Merrimack/PC in that they're a big physical team that doesn't score a lot, doesn't give up a lot, and takes a crap load of penalties.

                          Simple for me to say, but it just seems to me we have to take it to the net and look for ugly and rebound goals.

                          Again, hopefully the week off will help out.

                            No. I think many of us are thinking the same thing, especially with the way things worked out with PC. Hopefully the team has learned from that series. Miami is a tough draw. The Hawks will need to play their best hockey and find a way to get pucks and players to the net.

                              I'm planning on going to all the Bridgeport games myself, but have some friends that can only make it to the Saturday game (hopefully we get that far!). Does anyone know if you can buy games individually and how that might work?

                              Thanks in advance!

                              Wicked pumped for the tournament. I remember watching it on TV the last time they were there. Can't believe I was only 10 at the time! Like Norm said, it's been much too long.

                                I haven't hung there often as I'm generally too thirsty and too cheap to drink $6 drafts but my impression of Beer Works is that it's not really a "watching every second of a hockey game" kind of place. Aren't the TV's kind of small and high up? Certainly could be wrong on this and if the place will be filled with UML fans then I'd go.

                                Miami being a big physical opponent does worry me after getting manhandled by Providence. What I found very frustrating in that series is that we didn't take advantage of our speed and squirminess by skating the puck out of our own end instead of passing it out. Too often we passed the puck before we got to our blue line even though we weren't being challenged. Providence hung back between center ice and their blue line, waited for us to pass then flew to the puck and creamed the Riverhawk the pass was intended for. Maybe Norm should think back to our 9 goal weekend in Maine (who has very big physical defensemen eh?) and use that game plan for Miami.
