    Gee, ya think?
    Strange, I was reminding them of that all game.

    Lowell is 588-580-109 all-time in Division 1.

    The win over Dartmouth on New Year's Eve pushed Lowell above .500 in D1 all-time. They briefly dropped below .500 again, then went back above .500 for good after beating Northeastern on February 3rd.

    Two dilemmas for tonight, but this can be filed under "a good problem to have".
    I am on the Board for a non-profit and tonight we have our fundraiser. The non-profit has taken a lot of my time this year which is why I missed a lot of games this year despite being a season ticket holder. My wife attends the hockey games with me and has adopted UML as her hockey team despite not going to UML.

    Dilemma #1 - my wife went to BC and she is having a tough time deciding who to root for tonight. The funny thing is that she is having a tougher time than she ever would have expected. Our tickets are in Loge 2 - the UML section. This may tip her decision to wear her Lowell colors. Not sure how things would fare in this section if she wore her BC jersey; however I think our fans are good enough to only give her good natured ribbing.

    Dilemma #2 - go to the game or the fundraiser? Well, I think that decision was already made despite having tickets for both events. UML vs BC for the title? That is a no brainer. Sorry non-profit: you have already gotten much of my time and money this year. TD Garden, here we come.

    Like I mentioned, good problems to have.
    I think you have to go your separate ways for the game... but anyhoo

    What part of "if all of the higher seeds win" did you think included a tie?

    Actually that's not entirely correct. When Lowell was sent to Michigan in 1994, they beat Michigan State on their home ice before losing to Minnesota in OT in the regional final. Two years later in 1996, Lowell again beat Michigan State on their home ice but lost in the regional final to Colorado College.

    With that said, I'm definitely hoping Lowell stays east as it would be very much a home game fan-wise.

    This is great. Notre Dame fans are in denial too that they lost. It's funny.
