    They are not from his presser after the game. They are from his Hockey East teleconference appearance on March 14th (today).

    Interesting piece. Hopefully Lowell will be 9-2-2 against Fake Hockey East after Friday's semi-final, completing their dominance of them. And along with BU, keep them from any Hockey East titles as they go back to where they came from when the season's over. Then just root for whoever plays them in NCAAs if they make it.

    Should be. I'm planning to propose (PhD project proposal) on the 22nd (barring any faculty schedule changes), so I should theoretically even have free time ( )

    Not a great weekend overall for UNH though. After the high of their upset win Friday night, it went downhill from there. Transportation snafus on Saturday leading to disruption of routine and later start and then a loss combined with the pasting Lowell gave them yesterday. Mustn't have been a fun ride back to Durham.

    No problem. Tons of great information on the UML tournament page. They're doing a great job as usual.

    UML's pregame starts at 2:00 at Anthem Kitchen and Bar at Faneuil Hall Marketplace (South Market Building) as it's St. Patrick's Day and the usual pregame location at The Harp isn't available for obvious reasons. If Lowell wins Friday, pregame will be at The Harp on Saturday.

    Lowell's tournament page is also up HERE with the usual array of information including tickets, pregame location, directions, etc.

    Wish I was still a student too. Great deal for $10 includes a ticket for BOTH nights and bus transportation each night. Wow!
    Thanks!

    At this point it's almost more important what North Dakota does this weekend than anything else. There's a bunch of scenarios where BU wins out, gets a 1 seed, but likely gets shipped to Fargo because UND falls to the 4 line and DU/UMD can't play them. I'd imagine there are a bunch of similar scenarios for UML where they win out but end up getting shipped west for one reason or another. Would've been a lot easier if St. Cloud had just done their job this weekend and eliminated them.

    5PM Puck Drop

    BC Vs BU not a chance Hockey East, NESN, or TD Garden wanted that to be the early game

    Okay...a question and things I have noticed.

    -Was Campbell suspended or a scratch yesterday?
    -There is a strong chance even if we win the HE Tourney that we finish behind BU (both 2 seeds) and PC stays as a 3 seed (according to the PWR Predictor they only have a 32% of dropping to a 4 seed). This worries me a little as I feel the committee will keep PC in the Providence regional as the 3 seed and BU will be placed in the Manchester regional as the 2 seed...leaving us going west.
    -If BC was to win the HE Tourney this could give HE 5 teams in...and there a chance that all 5 teams would be a 2 or 3 seed. That would be very interesting to say the least.
    Just because BU finishes higher in the pairwise doesn't promise they will get priority on an eastern regional. If the first pass at bracket integrity works such that Lowell ends up in Manchester they aren't just going to flip BU and Lowell because BU has the higher pairwise.
