    There are so many better places to hit up than Fuddruckers. The 99, for one. But seriously.. Culpepper's, Grassfields, Palmers or Elm Square Oysters.

          Not really a pilgrimage when North Andover is a mere 20 minutes from Lowell and there's one in Methuen as well.

                    Wow, what's with the Chicken Little perspective? And I'm a Merrimack fan! Yes, tough weekend for you guys against UConn, but they've been a thorn for a couple of years now. Personally, I think UConn is a bit underrated, and Tage Thompson is an outstanding player.
                    The MC v UML games last year were a grind, and I agree, the Warriors always play you guys tough. A split wouldn't surprise me, and I'd be REALLY surprised (pleasantly) if MC can get 3 or more (less surprised if UML were to do that).

                      It definitely feels smaller, but I thought no ice sheet is smaller than NHL size in college?

                        They claim its NHL size:

                          It will be interesting to see what Lowell team we see tonight. Metcalf or Wall?

                            Alright, so where should I go for good craft beer before the game in Lowell? (Other than the Beerworks.)

                              Cobblestones. It's within walking distance too, just a little farther.

                                With a couple of new arenas you might be right... either way Merrimack has always been posted as regulation but it's always felt tiny because it's a glorified garage

                                I know in my time there were a couple that were a few feet short of regulation but nothing like the old days of 185x85.

                                Edit: I didn't realize the school could finesse the zones... clearly you wouldn't do it regularly but I never thought about it
