    Since Norm Bazin became head coach, Lowell is 78-40-9 away from Tsongas Center. The winning percentage of .650 is the best in the nation over that span.

    It looks like Murphy's also has a Diner adjacent to the taproom serving breakfast:

    Some of you have probably seen this, but it's a great read for some of the older fans and some of the newer ones to learn a bit about Lowell's colorful history. Great piece that was written almost 20 years ago by Dave Hendrickson, and I found it last week and posted on Facebook.

    Maybe the usual place is tied up with marathon stuff or a 9 or 10am pregame isn't doable. We'll see as the noon start and other downtown activities might make it problematic. But hopefully not.

    This is interesting regarding tickets in Manchester. Found this on a Cornell hockey message board. Hopefully if demand is high, they'll open up balcony sections as I would think they wouldn't turn away fans and their money.

    "FYI. Here is a little information that some might find helpful and disappointing. Being a lifelong resident of Manchester and knowing the arena well.(It's no longer Verizon Wireless Arena,it's now SNHU Arena.} after just coming back from the ticket office, this is what I have found. First, they are not even selling the upper bowl which is half of the seats. Obviously says something about the low attendance they are expecting. The middle two sections on either side were sold out in advance. The next two sections from the blue line to the goal line on each end and side have been given to each school to sell themselves on campus. Thus, the only remaining seats to be purchased at the arena are end seats unless schools return unsold seats which is likely.Buying through Cornell directly you must purchase tickets for both days but at the arena you can buy individual days.The Manchester ticket office is taking a lot of heat for this ticket arrangement but in actuality it's the NCAA doing this. Not surprising to say the least. The first game between Lowell and Cornell should have a fairly respectable crowd with Lowell being only 30 miles away and Cornell always traveling well. The second game between Notre Dame and Minnesota there will crickets. Should Cornell win, Sunday's final could be very empty."

    Well, figured out a costly way but easy way to skip all these parking situation problems.

    Just got a room at the Radisson. That will at least make things a lot easier for Saturday morning.
    Ok, we're all piling in with you Friday night!

    I don't really think it will be that chaotic as long as people arrive a little earlier and maybe not the most direct route one might normally take. From what I hear, there are many private lots that park folks to the south of the marathon zone so it should be ok. I just hope everyone is spreading the word beyond this thread as not everyone is obviously on here.

    Some initial side-by-side comparisons between Lowell and Cornell:

    Offense - Lowell 3.69 goals per game (6th in nation)/Cornell 2.91 goals per game (31st in nation)
    Defense - Lowell 2.36 goals allowed (13th in nation)/Cornell 2.24 goals allowed (8th in nation - tied with Notre Dame)
    Power Play - Lowell 27.06% (3rd in nation)/Cornell 17.76% (33rd in nation)
    PK - Lowell 85.6% (10th in nation)/Cornell 83% (27th in nation)
    I'd be worried about the special teams #s if I were a Cornell fan.

    Here's a few other stats I dug up:

    Cornell was 2-3-1 against tournament teams going 0-3 against Harvard and 2-0-1 against Union. Lowell was 3-4-2 against tournament teams going 2-1 against NDame, 0-0-2 against UMD, 1-1 vs BU and 0-2 vs PC. Against other quality opponents who were ranked in Top 20 at the time played Cornell was 4-1-1 going 1-0-1 against Yale, 1-1 vs Quinn and 2-0 against St Lawrence. Against Top 20 quality opponents Lowell was 6-0-0 going 1-0 vs St Lawrence, 2-0 vs VT and 3-0 vs BC.
