    Re: 2016/2017 Lowell Thread: Hoping for Chicago pt 2

    There's an argument to be made that there could be a penalty on both players there, Zink for interference and the ND guy for holding the stick. But both would be very marginal calls and also difficult to see, look how hard it is for us to make a determination watching the replay that many times. I think the ref there doesn't want to blow his whistle on a strict interpretation of the rule that he can't be sure of. No call either way I think was the right move. Chick's right though, if you're putting yourself in a situation, like BU did on Saturday, where you're one call/no call away from losing a game, you've already missed opportunities elsewhere.

To do it while twirling around, opening his glove wide enough to grab Zink's stick while not losing his own is really just not possible.
    NO he has a stick in each hand

    This is why they don't believe in eye witnesses. The latest one I find looks diff than the one I think I saw last night.

    Not arguing the interference at all. Both teams spent the night interfering with each other with non-calls. As I said, the game result is the game result.

    If you go slo-mo or freeze frame he is holding 2 sticks in the air. I am pretty sure our guy didn't hand the stick to the other guy and say, 'here, hold this for me.' I know it is semantics and honestly I am not always a fan of the guy who owned said stick. It just stuck in my craw. Honestly I would have felt better if they said- look at that but no call.

    Well, as an objective observer I would say the truth (as usual) lies somewhere in between. I didn't see him "holding" it in each hand, but I agree that he DID have it "pinned" under his arm so he wasn't letting Zink get it back. But I've never seen holding called on an offensive player so I'm not sure how they could have handled it. Delay of game? I think if there's no goal scored there (and I know that led directly to the goal) then that's nothing. It's one of those things that you let go and then say "Oh oh" when the goal immediately follows.

    That won't make anyone feel any better, but I'll just say this. You NEVER want to put yourself in a position where one call or non-call can cost you the game. I said a few times yesterday that I thought it was very "unfortunate" to have to play them again after you just crushed them last Friday night. Nothing good can come of it, and I don't care how many times the coach "warns" the team not to get overconfident, it's hard to get pumped up against someone you completely destroyed. That game at the Garden was a joke. No doubt in my mind you would have played much better against Minnesota. It's one of the reasons (as you're starting to find out) why it is so difficult to win a National Championship. They don't play the games on paper. You've got to go out there and take care of business and Lowell didn't really seem to play with that fire that they have had during the recent streak.

    IDK... I watched it many times last night. Seems like the ND player is a righty, has his bottom hand off the stick in the air (trying to buy a call?) after he gets spun around by Zink (hooking/holding?), is holding his own stick with his left hand on the butt end so I'm not sure what he was using if he held onto Zink's stick. Either way... there was some serious interference anyway so that was kind of a deserved situation. Just seems like he somehow lost his stick. I mean we're talking about 3 straight seconds of interference on a guy who chipped the puck in at the blue line. Look at where they are 3 seconds later.

    Will be interested to see how the programs move along with Gambardella. Tremendous player that seemed like the straw that stirs the drink. Felt like he played at UML for 7 years.

    For me, the most disappointing part about yesterday was knowing Joe isn't going to put that uniform on again. I agree with you, he was the straw that stirred the drink. I'm encouraged by what I see from Lohin, I'm thinking he could be the next guy.

    Thanks to the seniors for everything they've done for the program. One more year, CJ? Please?
    That pretty much sums it up.

    Congratulations to Notre Dame on the win today.

    Great season by the boys! Tough way to go down... the refs let them play which in all honesty...doesnt suit us. We had some bad turnovers by guys that normally dont make those type of mistakes.

    Congrats River Hawks for a great season! Well done Notre Dame, you deserved the victory today.

    I can't help but wonder how much yesterday's rough game against Cornell took some of the legs out of UML today. The 'Hawks never seemed to be able to generate any open ice speed. Also need to credit the Irish for a terrific game plan, taking away the usual UML passing lanes, out hustling, etc.

    Congrats to the seniors and best of luck in the future wherever your paths may lead.
