That's a disappointing loss. Had they won tonight, I would have liked their chances to make the NCAA tournament, but now it feels like they will fall short again.
They also need to stay out of the box. Too many penalties yesterday.
As for the Pairwise, a split this weekend didn't hurt them that much, and is essentially offset by the win over Penn State, the split with UMD, and the 2 wins against PC. The Colgate series is the one that hurts more. However, with 6 games left against BC/UMass/NU, they still pretty much control their own destiny for the NCAA's.

They would be 7th in the PWR had they won last night. Instead they are now 13th and have a tougher schedule looming. That's a big difference. They get outshot in most games, and 2:1 by the better teams they've faced (PC, Penn State, UMD). Thanks to Tyler they've stolen some wins against those teams. I agree they still control their NCAA destiny, and that it's too early to throw in the towel, but this season is trending similar to the past couple.

The UCONN series didnt help matters either. Big game against BC friday before the meat and potatoes of the schedule comes in

I feel good against BC tonight.... if Wall has another spectacular game that is. Nothing of a revelation here but seems to be the key so far this year - as goes Wall, so goes the Team. Plus we are 8-1-3 on Fridays this year!

I thought Lowell played good tonight, especially in the first two periods. Unfortunately a few too many shots into Knight’s chest in the 3rd. BC obviously will make you pay with any mistake. What a snipe by Newhook! I think special teams was the difference tonight with UML failing to convert, as well as giving up that SHG. On to Merrimack.
Hat Tip to Lowell’s finest tonight. Not only was it frigid, but they added an officer to waive people through the light by the commuter rail station. I haven’t seen that before and I hope that continues.
