Didn't see a thread for this game ... so here it is.

UML comes in on their first two game losing streak since February of last season (swept in a home/home by NU). After going the first 11 games having scored at least 3 goals in each game, the offense took a nap last week scoring 2 against PC and 1 against Maine. Not only that, from what I've heard/seen on the two games last week (I only saw the Maine debacle) the team was flat both nights.

UNH meanwhile comes in on a four game unbeaten streak that's seen them get to the top of HE.

Lowell beat UNH at the Tsongas almost a month ago 6-3.

Thoughts?

The second and third period implosion by the Cats at Tsongas on 8 November was my birthday present, I guess. At least the IPA at Lowell Beer Works after the game was excellent. Sadly, the only Cats game I have seen in person all season. But, good to see that the Cats have been playing better of late. Appears that Bobby Butler is really making a statement about not being drafted, and his linemates DeSimone and Thompson are contributing, too. I think that this weekend will be very telling about how Hockey East might play out in the second half, as it still looks like a lot of parity in HE to me.

I have no clue how this game is going to turnout. Lowell played like crap last week and were punished by Providence and Maine.

The big sheet at the Whitt will be a factor in the outcome.

lowell typically rebounds well from weekends in which they were swept.

lowell typically rebounds well from weekends in which they were swept.Really???? They have been swept in a weekend 3 times in the last year :

12/5-6 - Swept by UNH....Go on to lose 4 more in a row.

1/2-3 Swept by M-Duluth and Union.....lose next weekend to a weak PC team.

2/27-28 Swept by NU......sweep a weak Maine team.

Hardly "rebounding well".....mixed bag would be kind to describe it.

really!!!!!!

So why don't you expand on that a little more... 2/27-28, swept by NU, then went on to sweep Maine, sweep UVM in the HE quarterfinals, beat NU in the semi-finals, and tie BU in the championship. Yeah, they didn't rebound well at all. :rolleyes:

And you're double dipping there with the whole Duluth/Union/PC loss... the UNH weekend started the 6 game losing streak last season which those games were a part of. After that losing streak they went 7-2-2 in their next 11, which brought them to the NU series.

So to recap... Sweep by UNH, and the 4 other games following, followed by a 7-2-2 record... Sweep by NU leads to a 5-0-1 record and the Hockey East finals...

Your making my point, losing 6 games in a row after getting swept (which includes another weekend of being swept) which includes losing to a horrible PC team as well doesn't really translate into them "usually" rebounding nicely after being swept. No one is doubting they went on a roll last season after being swept by NU.
I'm just disputing that they usually turn things around. 1 of 3 times they responded well, not usually as Goon claimed. But if you guys want to claim they are world beaters after they have been swept, feel free. They were very good once and horrible twice.

I agree 7-2-2 is not horrible......unfortunately,that wasn't Lowell's record. They went 1-5 after the UNH sweep and I think that is pretty horrible on whatever planet you would like to use.

point still stands. go run a lap.

point still stands. go run a lap. What's your problem? No one can disagree with you or you get all ****y? You said how great Lowell usually is after being swept. I just pointed out that they weren't.....if you wanna pretend going 1-5 is good record after being swept, go for it. I was just stating they actually have mixed results.....didn't mean to upset you. They had 1 good run and 1 bad one, but believe what you want.

So I guess your saying that UNH is going to kick Lowells ***????

So I guess your saying that UNH is going to kick Lowells ***???? I simply listed how UML has done after being swept the last 3 times. I don't see where I said UNH is going to kick their a**. I do think it will be a close 1 goal game, and if anyone wins big it will likely be UML as they seem to have more talent this year, but I think a close game is likely.

Hey, apparently there are ties in HE championship games now. In the words of Mr. Garnett (in that same building?) "ANYTHING'S POSIBLLLLLLLE!"

I hope the recent results show that UNH has found their game, but I still think UML takes this game. I also won't be surprised when the Lowell fans are louder than the UNH ones (disappointed, but not surprised).

If you're going to separate the UNH sweep from the Duluth/Union sweep (like you did in your original post), then yes, Lowell did not play well after the UNH sweep, but did very well after the Duluth/Union and NU sweeps.

7-3-2 (Cause the PC game came after the Duluth/Union fiasco) can be classified by reasonable people as rebounding nicely. Fact.
