    Re: 2016/2017 Lowell Thread: Hoping for Chicago pt 2

    If you want to see Cornell at it's best, watch the tape from last Friday when the Big Red "wiped the floor" with Union in Lake Placid.

    Dutchman's cutting comments notwithstanding, Cornell may not match the skill level of Harvard--very few teams this year do--but the Big Red has plenty of skill and grit and was the 3rd highest scoring team in the ECAC. The biggest difference for Cornell this year has been the depth of scoring across all four lines, and much better offensive support from the blue line. In most recent years we've had at best two lines that could put the puck in the net.

    Offense - Lowell 3.69 goals per game (6th in nation)/Cornell 2.91 goals per game (31st in nation)
    Defense - Lowell 2.36 goals allowed (13th in nation)/Cornell 2.24 goals allowed (8th in nation - tied with Notre Dame)
    Power Play - Lowell 27.06% (3rd in nation)/Cornell 17.76% (33rd in nation)
    PK - Lowell 85.6% (10th in nation)/Cornell 83% (27th in nation)

    UML and Harvard were the two most offensively explosiveness teams we have seen. I believe Harvard has more overall depth top to bottom. The PP on these teams were lethal. UML works for the one-timer on the weakside, mostly off the right hand circle with a leftie shot. The finishes on thse one-timers were of NHL-caliber, bar-down and hard, our goalie had no chance. I do remember that UML was predominantly lefties and CJ Smith and Gambardella were outstanding. You guys can get up and down with speed and skill. Whereas Cornell has a really BIG team, kind of lumbering so they like to play down low on O and win board battles and scrums in front of the net. So we have two different styles of play...whichever team imposes their style will win. If I were a betting man and I picked Cornell losing to Harvard in the ECAC final, I would say UML takes this one 4-2, too much fire power, the same kind that Harvard gave Cornell fits to.

    Cornell isn't even at full strength on defense. Three of their regular defenders are out (one of whom hasn't played a single game this year and another thanks to a certain Union player ).

    Serious thanks to all those that have told us a bit about Cornell. Having seen them once (ever), it's really appreciated.

    Would be great to be a student again. UML student deal for Manchester regional is $40 and includes a ticket and round trip bus for both days. Good for Lowell!

    Re: parking on Saturday - not sure if this is a good idea or not, but I am thinking of parking near the Skyzone. Seems to be just far enough away from the 1/2 marathon route and the arena (~1 mile walk). This would avoid having to deal with the Rte 293 exit ramps which can be hideous.

    It is supposed to be raining (just wanted to let you know - in 2015 it was MISERABLE and FREEZING COLD and I had to walk a couple of miles...of course, I was sick too so that didn't help).

    With all of this parking/traffic hassle, maybe we would have been better off going to Fargo?

    Yeah there definitely wouldn't have been any "additional allotment".

    I assume Manchester will also be holding concurrent Memorial Day and Independence Day parades?

    Maybe a car show as well?

    Apparently there's massive construction going on outside of the Fargo arena too.
    I was formerly a tasty 7-11 beverage. Now I'm a fan of defunct hockey teams.

    Well, figured out a costly way but easy way to skip all these parking situation problems.

    Just got a room at the Radisson. That will at least make things a lot easier for Saturday morning.

    I'd be worried about the special teams #s if I were a Cornell fan.

    Here's a few other stats I dug up:

    Cornell was 2-3-1 against tournament teams going 0-3 against Harvard and 2-0-1 against Union. Lowell was 3-4-2 against tournament teams going 2-1 against NDame, 0-0-2 against UMD, 1-1 vs BU and 0-2 vs PC. Against other quality opponents who were ranked in Top 20 at the time played Cornell was 4-1-1 going 1-0-1 against Yale, 1-1 vs Quinn and 2-0 against St Lawrence. Against Top 20 quality opponents Lowell was 6-0-0 going 1-0 vs St Lawrence, 2-0 vs VT and 3-0 vs BC.

    Ok, we're all piling in with you Friday night!

    I don't really think it will be that chaotic as long as people arrive a little earlier and maybe not the most direct route one might normally take. From what I hear, there are many private lots that park folks to the south of the marathon zone so it should be ok. I just hope everyone is spreading the word beyond this thread as not everyone is obviously on here.

    And the 100 $40 student packages sold out very quickly, all gone! Now if past patterns continue, UML is probably hunting down additional sections to expand into and offer additional student packages. Hopefully more will become available.
