    I'm not sure. The line for Dipping Dots gets really long though, so it doesn't surprise me that they added a second location.

      As far as I can remember, the fried dough cart was an independent concessionaire and rented space at the arena. Not sure whos decision it was to leave.

        A nice job by the Hawks in taking care of business this weekend.

          I thought last night's game was very entertaining. Vermont played much better and Lowell looked very good, especially in the 3rd. Like Norm said in his presser, they attacked in the 3rd when they hadn't last weekend. Henry has been playing outstanding. It makes me wonder if he was playing hurt last season. We're roughly 1/3 of the way through the season and Hockey East appears to be much better up and down the conference. Lowell is currently #2 in the country in fewest goals against, and the #1 is Harvard who has only played 3 games. Special teams are adequate, especially the PK.

          Looking forward to the games coming up. BC will play Lowell in their 3rd game within 4 days and Uconn is off to a very good start. These will all be a big test heading into the trip to Ireland.

            Posted part of this on the Vermont thread too... but I thought UVM looked like a JV team the first night (11 shots on goal?), but I was impressed with their response on Saturday. They had some bad puck luck on both nights, with pucks bouncing when they seemed to have open nets to shoot at.

            I thought we looked OK at times, but the more I watch them, the more I'm getting worried about this team when they play the higher ranked programs as the year progresses.

              they're slow and have a hard time controlling the puck. Somebody will eat us alive eventually. Maybe it'll be the more talented teams once they find they're rhythm. But it will happen.

                Yeah, the team is definitely slow. Lowell had at least a couple of breakaway opportunities over the weekend where our skater couldn't get to the net fast enough to do anything with it.

                  There’s talk that the Turkey Leg could return in the Merrimack Valley next year with Lowell and Merrimack hosting a pair of teams Thanksgiving weekend.

                      Three big games (@BC, UConn, @UConn) for the River Hawks this week before they head off to Belfast. The Eagles will be without Kuntar and Alami tomorrow night due suspensions. Hopefully Jon McDonald is back for the Hawks.

                          A tough loss at BC (they did play well in the third at least), and now two extremely tough games against UConn. A UConn team that has kept it's blue collar personality (like Lowell) but went out and found a higher level of talent to fit their system. See how that goes this weekend.

                            Well said. UML plays a bit more systematic, but both teams have a blue collar aspect with how hard they compete. UConn plays fast and pressures the puck in all three zones. The difference this year is they have 3 lines that can score. Watching some of the game Tuesday night, it looks like UML clogs the neutral zone defensively, but will also stretch it out offensively.

                            This should be a good weekend of hockey.

                              Very entertaining game tonight. I thought they skated well and played a consistent game.

                                4 of 6 losses are by a goal, meaning they're keeping games competitive. In only one of those 6 did they score more than 2, meaning their offense isn't doing enough.

                                Really happy to see them come back from 3-0 down, but ... why were you down 3-0 (after being down 2-0 the previous night)? Another game at UMass coming up this weekend, another chance to end what has become a rather embarrassing streak of 7 straight without a regulation win.
