    I am good with UNH locking up 6th. Now the pressure is on MS7 to lead his team to wins tonight and in the MBPBEGAM game on Wednesday for a 20-win season. Considering that I predicted only eight wins in a UNH friends and family pre-season pool, I remained amazed by the results this year.

    • Why is Jakob playing. Meaningless game with a game Wednesday. Give Moose reps then Jeremy some ice.

      • From the fans watching at home … how was Stiven’s interview? He tried to blow by her. (insert big grin face)

          Too funny! That explains it, I think. “We got to keep playing hahd. Tonight. And we need to keep playing hahd on Wednesday night, also.” :-)

              I think he said Id rather be a Wildcat in Durham NH than a black bear in Orono ME or knifed in Lowell MA.

                  Watching some of the NESN replay angles, I was surprised that Cafarelli did not get five also.

                  Nice interview by Morgan Winters. And excellent replay of the classic Ralph Cox vignette.

                  Speaking of the PK, BC scored two shorties late in second to tie up Mack 2-2.

                    Why do we need to "give reps" to a kid who's about a month away from the transfer portal???

                      Legendary. Like the Slavic version of the old SNL Chico Esquela baseball skit. "Ockey been bery bery goot to me".

                      Natalie asked two creampuff questions; Sardarian picked the key word in each question, and basically responded by repeating it several times. Talk about ESL. Both seemed happy to get the "interview" over quickly.

                        LOL. I don't think SS7 gets to that part of his Rosetta Stone Russian-to-English course until next season, e.cat.

                        Senior year will be dedicated to "Show Me the Rubles", "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" and "Make America Great Again".

                        My understanding is Cy Leclerc will be helping him with the last bit ... ;-)

                        • 20 wins now well within reach ... lots of quality discussion during the broadcast about the trite cliche "it'll be hard to beat the same opponent three times in a row". To his credit, MS7 avoided it in the NESN postgame by simply invoking the other easy out, which is the greatness of the opposing coach, postseason accomplishments, etc. Speaking of which ... this is only Bazin's second losing season out of 13 seasons at Lowell, and really the first outright bad season he's ever had in charge. One does wonder if he's starting the "Umile fade" section of his career??

                          But kudos to Normie, UML locked it down for the final 35+ minutes to salvage another 4-0 waxing (j/k 'Ref). I've never seen a UNH team push a Bazin team around like they did this weekend, reminiscent of how UNH pushed UMaine around during "White Out" weekend. If this is the kind of intensity and focused physical play that UNH can turn into a habit, I can be talked back into the pro-MS7 camp. "Just win baby" indeed.

                          Before I forget ... I noticed while watching the replay of Friday night's game, there was a huge amount of space behind both nets at Tsongas, not unlike the trend a generation ago to expand the area behind the goal lines. Is that a thing in Lowell? Is there an HEA accommodation that allows it to be different than pretty much everywhere else? Nigel??

                          Funniest thing I saw behind the goal in the student section this weekend:

                          Low
                          Lower
                          Lowest

                              That is what this was about. I asked and was told coaches decision. I know Jakob had a shutout but I would rather give up a goal in a game that does not matter than risk losing your #1 goalie.
