    Need to right the ship against NU Friday and then hopefully stay competitive with BU Saturday.
    Did he come in as an 18 year old? But yeah, hopefully he just needed some time to get his feet wet...

    One game at a time. NU will be tough and they have some offensive fire power. They currently have three players in the top ten in scoring in the nation (Aston-Reese (4), Sikura (5) and Gaudette (10)). Joe Gambardella is eighth in scoring. Aston-Reese also leads the nation in goals with 21. The Huskies scored 4 power play goals (4 for 11) in their weekend sweep of MC.

    Looking at the NU thread it looks like their goalie Ruck has struggled at times. Hopefully the Hawks can keep the puck in the NU end and get a few past him early and then stay out of the box.

Is he a healthy scratch each week or his he dealing with some injuries as well?

    Hopefully Master is ready to go this weekend. Leclerc's last game was on 11/11/16 at Maine. He saw action in 9 of the first 12 games. Ryan Collins has only played in 6 games and Winkler skated in his 5th game Saturday night.

    With all of tonight's games now over, Lowell is sitting at 10th in the pairwise. Bad weekend, but probably not as bad as the weekend two years ago when PC swept Lowell.

    Must win next Friday against an NU team that has had Lowell number in recent years.

    That third period was probably the worst period Lowell has played all season. Until the penalty with under 2 minutes to play they might have spent about 2 minutes in the offensive zone total. They just could not get the puck out of their own zone, and when they did, they had no sustained pressure at all.

    As bad as this weekend was, given the 9 games they have left, 6-3 the rest of the way is not unreasonable, and that should still put them in a good spot for a 1st round bye. I'm figuring teams will need 27 points to get to 4th. The past 2 years the number has been 28 and 26 points to get a bye, so 27 is a reasonable estimate.

    That was one ugly third period. A great job by the Friars as they just wore the Hawks down. The team had trouble just getting the puck out of their own zone. Norm mentioned having to shorten his bench. Did someone get hurt? Winkler didn't see much ice time according Bob Ellis.

    Did Master get hurt Friday night? I know he went off early in the game but returned. Where's Leclerc? Team depth is looking a little thin.
