Another potentially disastrous weekend looms ahead against Merrimack. Can't have a repeat of last weekend vs UConn but unfortunately the recent past shows that Merrimack will probably be a tough two games. Hoping that Fuddruckers on Saturday won't be the highlight of the weekend.

BC defeated NU again tonight 5-3. Impressive start by the Eagles. First place in HE at 8-0-1.

Yeah, they're basically running away with Hockey East this year. Almost halfway through the league schedule and they've only conceded one point.

Article from the Sun with feature on Joey G. and a weekend preview:

A couple of interesting tidbits at the end. Apparently Lowell is the first team in D-1 history to have 4 different goalies see action in a season. Also coach says the latest recruit, Cole Paskus, may come in next season.

Hopefully the new third jersey will bring the team luck Friday night.


3rd JERSEY: As part of the celebration of 50 years of UMass Lowell hockey the River Hawks will, tonight, unveil a third jersey. The design is based on the uniform worn by the Lowell Tech teams of the early 1970s.

Well it would be nice if we had a third/fourth jersey we could win games in. Not sure Merrimack is the opponent I would test a jersey against though.

There are so many better places to hit up than Fuddruckers. The 99, for one. But seriously.. Culpepper's, Grassfields, Palmers or Elm Square Oysters.

Not really a pilgrimage when North Andover is a mere 20 minutes from Lowell and there's one in Methuen as well.

Can't have a repeat of last weekend vs UConn but unfortunately the recent past shows that Merrimack will probably be a tough two games. Wow, what's with the Chicken Little perspective? And I'm a Merrimack fan! Yes, tough weekend for you guys against UConn, but they've been a thorn for a couple of years now. Personally, I think UConn is a bit underrated, and Tage Thompson is an outstanding player.
The MC v UML games last year were a grind, and I agree, the Warriors always play you guys tough. A split wouldn't surprise me, and I'd be REALLY surprised (pleasantly) if MC can get 3 or more (less surprised if UML were to do that).

"Its the smallest rink in the conference... its not the same size, I guarantee it." ~Norm

It definitely feels smaller, but I thought no ice sheet is smaller than NHL size in college?

They claim its NHL size:

Optical illusion?

It will be interesting to see what Lowell team we see tonight. Metcalf or Wall?

Alright, so where should I go for good craft beer before the game in Lowell? (Other than the Beerworks.)

Cobblestones. It's within walking distance too, just a little farther.

With a couple of new arenas you might be right... either way Merrimack has always been posted as regulation but it's always felt tiny because it's a glorified garage

I know in my time there were a couple that were a few feet short of regulation but nothing like the old days of 185x85.

Edit: I didn't realize the school could finesse the zones... clearly you wouldn't do it regularly but I never thought about it
