    Real barn burner last night. hopefully another great game tonight.

    How bout that student section last night?!?! They were awesome. It is getting really fun to watch what they will come up with next. The guy in the dress with the beard and his buddy in the suit wins the prize. They should have a contest for the most funky idea and give it away at the end of the year. Really nice to see the ovation they gave the team after the game.

    The impossible has become possible. Words can’t describe the elation happening in the Riverhawk community. Stop and think: 5 wins last year, majority of the 5 win team returns, expansive number of underclassmen, new coaching staff, unknown team chemistry, unknown adaption to the new staff and system, building synergy, gaining trust and most of all – forgetting last year and building self confidence. I should probably also mention, playing in arguable the toughest college hockey conference in the country.

    I can honestly say, I haven’t seen anything like this since… “maybe”… the Patriots first winning superbowl, where the team was 5-11 the previous year, battled tremendous adversity, including injury and hiring a new coach with Bill Belichick (if someone has a better analogy – I am all for hearing it). Understand, I am not saying this team is winning the hockey east regular season, I am not saying this team will win the hockey east tournament and I am not saying that they have an automatic bid to the NCAA. What I am saying is this experience we are witnessing is very rare. That’s why people marvel at situations as such; when the runt of the litter becomes one of the top dogs. Great moments are derived from opportunities… and this team is making the best of it.

    Bob Ellis interviewed Captain Riley Wetmore in between periods. Riley stated that he never experienced this much team building in his life, and that everyone is there for everyone. Its not singular success, but rather team success… and Riley said they are having a lot of fun.

    I admit, when they hired Bazin I questioned it. I questioned whether he had the makeup to be a successful Hockey East coach. I questioned his background, and his experience… I questioned his success too, “great he turned a D3 team around, but can he turn around a D1 program”… and boy was I wrong. It’s amazing how much this coach has inspired his team, school and Riverhawk nation… it’s truly remarkable. Congrats to UMass – Lowell for making the right decision to hire Bazin, as he has proved to be a great coach and leader.

    reality check time... 7 games left plus at least 2 playoffs... win 2 of them and we'll be right here in front of our computers... the teams we have to slog through are not easy. All are beatable... and we won't win all of them. We aren't there yet.... but we're certainly in the neighborhood.

    Let's get #20 tonight.

    This season has been one of the most enjoyable seasons that I can remember since the glory days of Division 2 championships seasons. Being a season ticket holder for 33 years this season is enjoyable knowing that I'll be in Tampa and Norm and our boys have a good chance to be there too. Keep up the good work Norm and the Riverhawks. I am proud to be a Riverhawk Fan. Go Riverhawks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! See u in Tampa

On another topic, I will going to Tampa,(hopefully the team will be too) and I would like to put together a meet and great social for UML fans that will be there. If anyone is interested let me know. I can be reach here or at beachockey@comcast.net. I think it would be a good time.
    If the team makes it there I don't think you'll have a problem getting warm bodies... and the school would probably organize something anyways. Needless to say, if we're there, so am I.

    Nicely said hawkeytown.

    I also had a bit of doubt about Bazin but not as much as others. I figured he'd done 'something' in the past and he couldn't be worse than what we had. I was right. Def not worse.

    Wasn't able to listen to the game last night because I was in Durham with Mrs. gouml and her UNH-alum family for the game, but I did catch the post game show on WUML when we got home. Between that recap, the highlights on the Hockey East website, and the comments on this thread and the game thread, it really sounds like the game lived up to being one of the top contests in college hockey this weekend, anchored by Carr and Cannata (although the Wilson-Arnold-Wetmore line is becoming downright scary).

    At the beginning of the season, I would have guessed that Lowell would spend its time in mid-February jockeying with the #8-#10 teams for that last playoff spot, not a point ahead for first place in Hockey East. Bazin seems to make a point of keeping the players focused on the here-and-now, so all I'm hoping for right now is another great performance against Maine tonight. Win or lose tonight, who would have thought next week's Lowell-BU series would be between the #1 and #2 teams in the conference?

    Can't wait to listen to the game tonight.

    Absolutely great post.

    I can't begin to describe that feeling of elation from last night. Yes, this isn't the end of the season, this isn't the national championship etc. But after last year, it kinda feels like it. Seeing the smile on the long-time Lowell fans faces was such a wonderful thing.

    Now ... there's a game tonight. Going for the season sweep of Maine (yet another thing I never though I'd type this season). Hope the student section continues to grow... All IN!
