    Needless to say, the UMass result yesterday was a nice gift. It opens a door, and one that would be well worth walking through.

    • Likely play Umass in the semi's at WBA, that will be to their advantage but Umass is a very good team and their keeper looks pretty solid. Very tough team.

        And they instead walk into a wall. Two too many men penalties that turn into UML goal. :face palm:

        • Probably worst game of the year. Dumb penalties. No offensive zone time and awful on face off for yet get the tie/win. Ugly. If they are going to make a run they need to be way better in all areas.

          • That was ugly. Lowell deserved to win.

            Idea: Tell the team Farrance and Cockerill are out, play the 1st period without them and then have them appear on the bench for the 2nd. Anything to get back the team that played the two BC games.

            • Agree that the team was completely outplayed. I mean there were maybe 3 times all game (other than PPs) where we got more than one shot attempt off. We had no breakout whatsoever, whereas we could barely give UML any resistance on their breakouts. I noticed this years team more often than not passes the puck forward along the boards, rather than any sort of diagonal play to someone streaking through the middle. it rarely works. You can't really catch a guy in stride, and frankly, every third time it hits the linesman.

              The good news is that after looking this way against Merrimack, we found a groove for at least part of the second game. So if we have to play UML again (likely), maybe that will happen again.

              • Possibly worst part was Albie suggested "the team played well." His teams rarely come ready to play and win the one on one battles. Soft!

                • We'll play UML again unless UVM pulls out a win. Hope they play better than today or we could potentially be ending our season early.

                  • Meanwhile Oettinger got his first NHL shut-out yesterday. Good to see, because the history of Terrier goalies in the NHL is not a pretty one.

                    • As I have paying absolutely no attention to ratings/rankings/whatever I don’t have a clue as to what’s next. When will BU play again and against whom?

                        According to CHN they’re at home next Sunday at 4.

                            But, given that yesterday’s BU-UML game was the last game of the season for the league, shouldn’t the tournament be confirmed as of today? Or am I missing something? Is there another game?

                            And Bomber - hee!

                            • The first round games are confirmed for Wednesday. Because it's a COVID season, all teams make playoffs. UVM at UML and UNH vs. Maine in a top secret location for the ridiculous reason of Maine not being allowed to play at home. Reseed after those games for QF round on Sunday.

                                BU will play UML unless UVM upsets them. Then BU would play winner of ME and UNH.
