    2016/2017 Lowell Thread: Hoping for Chicago pt 2

    Not too shabby. Here's hoping for SRO, loud and proud for senior night and a win.

    Norm Bazin postgame " Lowell plays for trophies too, not just B.C."
    I am sure the players would love a trophy it takes two hands to hold, unlike the Dartmouth Invitational trophy(?)! Even the coach had to smirk a little when he saw it.

    I'm just wondering if anyone complained about all the old geezers beating up on the poor NHL draft picks?

    Anyway, great win last night. Love this team's resilience after that 4-game losing streak. I see a ton of scenarios to end the last thread. Here's mine. Just win.

    I'm thinking we hit 7,000 tonight. The place is going to be jammed and rocking. Unlike Conte last night which was kind of bland and blah, wasn't feeling much energy during the game from their building or fans and surprisingly low turnout from the fans, especially students.

    Agreed. Winterfest is going on up the street and I believe they're opening the doors at 6:30 so folks can view the BU/ND game on the center ice board prior to Lowell's 8:30 start. People are going to be everywhere.

    Hopefully they have some potential recruits at the game tonight.

    Me too and I'm sure they will. According to Monty via Wall's mother, that's the game last year Wall and his family attended and they were sold on coming to Lowell based upon the atmosphere.

    Watched the game on the stream last night and couldn't believe the lack of attendance last night at Conte from the so called "Superfans"

    So best case scenario is Lowell and Notre Dame win. Notre Dame win leaves more options for Saturday results.

    ND win or a tie are both ok from the standpoint that Lowell (assuming they win tonight) would have two paths to the RS title. A ND win would be better, because I think the odds BU forces a split in that scenario are better than having to hope ND wins and takes 3 of 4 or they tie for a second time on Saturday.

    Unless I'm missing something, does it even matter who wins tonight's game between BU/ND as long as Lowell wins tonight and the ND/BU loser wins Saturday? Are those rooting for ND only doing so to prevent BU from winning? Or they think Senior Night will mean a more likely BU win?

    I might be in the minority, but I'm not sure I want ND's name enshrined on any HE hardware.

    Notre dame getting three points still means Lowell gets the 1. So the feeling patronick expressed (and I tried to earlier rather poorly) was a notre dame win tonight gives lowell more options

    BU getting three points or ND getting four is problem... so, naturally, if you want to wake up tomorrow feeling the best then you would choose ND to win. This is because a split isn't the only situation that works.

    edit: and getting a second tie is low probability because any tie is low probability

    BU-ND split... or ND win and tie.
