  • I’m curious to see where everyone’s heads are at about this game. Nervous? Optimistic? I keep going back and forth myself.

    • As I was talking to my father yesterday, if the defense can play like they did and Grigals stands on his head again... theres always a chance. The style Merrimack plays with away from Lawler, gives for a lot of shot opportunities as they spread themselves out. As long as we dont get them scoring quickly like the prior 2 games i think itll be a slugfest.

      • 1. Our goalies have this maddening habit of letting in 1 or 2 bad goals a game, usually early. You could tell last week that Grigals was locked in right from the start. That needs to be the case again today.
        2. Get people to the net. Ollas tends to let up some rebounds, we need to have people there to cash them in (and also to take away his eyes on the initial shot).
        3. Do something on the power play besides taking 2 minutes off the clock.
        4. Control the faceoffs. Lowell is 7th in the nation in faceoffs, Merrimack is 9th worst. Those are 50/50 pucks that you need to control.

        • Nervous. Merrimack had our number a few weeks ago. We've been playing from behind against them in both games, never once having a lead. Play with the passion that you played with in the first at UConn. Don't play like you did in the second and third against UConn.

          Most importantly, play like your season is on the line. Because it is.

                I hope not but I don't see how it is anything other than a random play. I'm just generally disappointed

                • I wanted to wait till the end of this game before I made any judgements but we are pretty much at the end. Lowell is about to get shutout in the garden. I’m not calling for Norms head AT ALL. What I am calling for is a new strategy. We are about to get shut out on the biggest statue in the league. How can we even begin to take ourselves serious at this point? I

                        • they're reviewing it as courtesy but... man... tough break and good effort.

                          edit: looks like grigals tendency to move too far might have been what did it in the end, I'd have to look at it again and closer. Blah.

                          • That was a heavyweight matchup right there. Great bounce for Mack on the shotblock going right back onto their stick.

Trivino has never been one of those players. Even outside of the rink, he'll say hi and is plenty of friendly, but has never been even close to saying or doing anything inappropriate.

                            • Proud of the team. They fought tough, skated hard, bad break. Until next season.

                              • Lowell was just a few bounces short here and there all season long.

                                They should be fine next year.
