    Re: 2014-2015 Quinnipiac Bobcats: "I hear Boston is nice in April"

    Will be at both games this weekend. Really interested to see how it plays out. Lowell is very young with 14 freshman on the roster but they still have experience. They beat a BC team who was severely overrated after losing their only offense from last year (Johnny, Arnold, Hayes), not to take anything away from Lowell. Tsongas was reportedly packed with Lowell students and a great college hockey environment against BC and I expect some of the same against us Friday. We certainly will provide a great atmosphere saturday at our place. A split seems the most likely here but I'd never expect or hope for just a split. Another week of practice will certainly help with all the new lines. Garteig MUST have a good weekend. Offense has to come from defense and if they do that, they'll be fine.

    Have a good week everyone and hopefully see you at some games

      I'm hoping to get to Friday's games. It will be a big weekend of games to see where we match up with a solid team.

        Game day in Lowell.

        On paper we look to be closely matched with UML. I'm not sure what to expect since I don't think we've seen what we really have. Hopefully the coaches have figured it out.

          Really excited for tonight's game! It seems like it was just a few years ago that I was going to Tsongas to see Maine beat up on the River Hawks, but boy has a lot changed since my days in middle school. Their program has had a huge turnaround and I love it. A lot of the praise should be put on Norm Bazin, but the real praise goes to Bill Riga. I mean if they weren't roommates all those years ago ... How would Norm have learned a **** thing!

          I remember talking to Riga before the Frozen Four and being astonished at how small the college hockey world is when I found out they roomed together for a short time at Lowell. Riga had such high praise for Norm as a leader and said over and over about how great of a guy he is. After everything Bazin has gone through I'm so happy he is so successful. Of course, I hope his River Hawks get swept this weekend.

          I'll be there with Dad so if you see a long haired 20 something in a Wong jersey be sure to say hello. I should also note I am not a girl. So if you see a long haired 20 something female in a Wong jersey DONT say hello. I think she's Schvatz's ex-girlfriend and is a bit bitter about the whole break up. If you won't be in Lowell tonight I'll see you tomorrow at the Bank!

                Egg laid tonight but credit lowell for capitalizing on their chances. Have to go get then tomorrow night at the bank.

                  Was hard to tell on my video feed but it looked like we were a step behind them all night. They were undressing us in transition and had numerous odd-man rushes.

                  They need to regroup quickly and come out firing tomorrow. A split against a top-10 team still makes a decent weekend out of it.

                    Saw the boys play in my backyard tonight and overall looked like a team with a lot of turnover from last year. Some good and some not so good. That not so good cost them, particularly defensive lapses by some guys I didn't expect to see. Federico froze for split second and it cost him on the first goal. Agosta inexplicably did a 180 pass in his own zone right to a Lowell attacker who shot it past Garteig who never saw it. Speaking of Garteig, he gave up a juicy(by juicy I mean terrible) rebound goal in the 3rd that was a killer.

                    The good news is despite the 6-3 score, the team kept fighting and added a couple goals late to keep it close. Peca and Anas are going to have a special year if they can stay healthy. Not sold on Macmaster as the other spot on the top line but it's early. Finally, I think the best player on the ice tonight for the bobcats was Devon Toews. The kid showed why he was drafted as high as he was between his speed, awareness, and his transition game. Boston Bruins fans can appreciate the need for a puck moving defensman and Toews is indeed that.

                    It's early and I expect this team to gel as time goes on but tonight Lowell capitalized on their chances and deserved the victory.

                      Game day at the Bank!

                      Home ice advantage? I hope so. If they can polish up those rough edges things will start to come together. As long as they keep their heads in the game and keep getting pucks to the net they'll be fine.

                      Will there be any significant changes to the lineup? Time will tell.

                          Rough night for some players. Anas was a -4 along with Landon Smith. Peca a -3 as well as Dan Federico. Plenty to work on and its very early in the season.

                            Gartieg on the bench, only 1 Pieper (Bo), Fiala as the 7th D.

                            Lawrence looked good in net. The 1st 2 goals were not his fault at all... the tying goal was a wicked deflection at a bad angle. Otherwise he stopped everything he was supposed to.

                            Overall, they skated better than what I saw last night. Landon Smith was strong and Agosta seems to be getting comfortable. It appears everyone is gaining confidence so maybe things will start looking up.

                            Quick turnaround to Tuesday's UConn game in Bridgeport.

                              Larson and I had differing thoughts on Rand blowing up last nights lineup including Garteig. I liked the move. Lawrence did look good tonight but I hope it lights a fire in Garteig and he takes over. The defense was a lot better tonight (that's how bad it was last night). Lots of stick lifts which Rand loves. The second goal to the top shelf should of never happened. The guys need to eat that puck. Liked Landon's play tonight, Peca, and how bout some Tommy Schutt. I don't know if anyone else noticed but St. Denis definitely didn't play in the third period maybe even the second. Time to take care of UConn Tuesday and spend a week and a half correcting and tweaking. I expect the next time we see these guys at the Bank they are a different team.

                                Tommy Schutt is a workhorse. Never takes a shift off and is always giving his all. Not the most skilled out there, but definitely the most determined.

                                We saw St Denis in street clothes in the tunnel towards the end of the 3rd. I honestly don't remember his last shift, nor do I remember him having any trouble on the ice. Hopefully it's nothing serious, and at least he made an appearance unlike that former fan named Schvatz!

                                I hate to admit this but I enjoy having Larson at games. He's as passionate as any Bobcat fan I've met and offers great (even if sometimes twisted) insight into the game. Of course, anyone who wears a pink women's jersey to a men's game... well, um... err... yeah.
