  • For someone at the game, is the Alfond unusually quiet tonight? Not sure if it’s the sound on ESPN+ or not but seems quiet to me.

      Looking at the balcony, I assume the students are on break. They've always brought the noise to the arena. One of my professors said Alfond was a mortician's dream come true: so many lifeless bodies in one place. And mind you, this was when we were national champions, not the dregs of Hockey East.

      That was a disappointing showing. Only 2-1 on the scoreboard but it never felt like Maine was a threat. Lowell completely shut down any avenues of attack.

      • Barr will not beat Bazin until he has more talent than him.

        • Again, Maine can't finish.

          I was all for the Barr hire, but he hasn't brought in any hands.

          Not yet, anyway, and I'm nor seeing much in his recruits as of now.

          • Tough loss and some overreactions on here. Maine never really got going but I don’t think they were outplayed. Lowell played their game better than Maine played theirs.

            To say Maine hasn’t brought in any hands is a bit harsh. The freshman class is really strong and the transfers have been good. It’s fair to say Maine hasn’t brought in scorers but I wouldn’t expect that so soon. The Nadeau’s are certainly guys with hands.

            • Alfond was about half full Id say, no students.

              The team skated with Lowell never gave up and has great stamina compared to recent years but lowell is bigger could push maine off the puck and has much better puck skills.
              Cant put the puck in the net and pp sucks. Fix those two and things will look up.
              The freshmen are looking better each game.
              It was a fast game.

                When you get a 2 minute 5 on 3 and get nothing out of it, that ain't good. Barr knows that and most every fan knows that. No doubt Maine didn't give up but Lowell was the better team. Lets see what happens tonight.

                      Lol had the exact same thought.

                        I think If I won a billion Id just build them a new rink.

                          Norm Bazin was working in a lumber yard when Tim got him into coaching. Apparently, Tim recognized potential in him as a coach. He was right.

                            Tried to get him to Orono as an assistant coach but it didn’t work out. To be honest I think he’s a much better coach than recruiter so not sure how much difference he would have made.

                              That’s a pretty cool story. Bazin has always been class.

                              Lowell is a model for a lot of other rebuilding programs, they went out and got a great coach, made an investment in the arena (even though part of that was luck), and paid that coach handsomely to stay.

                              Big game tonight, can’t afford to get swept on home ice. Let’s see if Maine can solve Lowell, need the big guns to step up, especially Breen.

                                That third period was especially brutal. Dump and chase where Lowell would just out muscle Maine forecheckers to every puck and make Maine skate 200 feet just to do it again.

                                Kind of shocked Barr didn't recognize and adjust to that just simply not working and try to beat Lowell into the zone with speed.
