Weekend in review: Barely breathing

March 12, 2012
tags: , ,

Lowell lost to Providence in a three-game series somehow. They dropped Thursday’s game 5-3, won Friday 3-2 in overtime, then lost Sunday, 1-0. It was the only higher seed to lose its series. Unbelievable. We’re still crying.

Of course, Lowell was one of three teams that allowed themselves to be taken to three games in their series. BU eventually UNH, losing Friday 3-2 in double overtime, but rebounding for wins of 4-2 and 5-4, again in double overtime, on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Meanwhile, Maine downed Merrimack in a penalty-filled embarrassment to the league, sandwiching 2-1 wins on Friday and Sunday around a 4-2 loss on Saturday, in a game that featured 50 penalties and 184 PIMs.

BC, meanwhile, swept Amherst to no one’s surprise, though the games were closer than anyone had a right to expect. They won 2-1 and 3-2.

Our Weekly Awards
Player of the Week
Doug Carr, Lowell (sophomore goalie) — This kid was the only reason Lowell didn’t get embarrassed in two games. He made 36 saves in all three contests. He’s really great. Also, today is his birthday.
(Honorable mention: whoever Hockey East picked is fine)

Rookie of the Week
Zack Kamrass (freshman defenseman) — He had four points this weekend! He has seven in his career against Providence. Imagine if anyone else on the team could match that production.
(Honorable mention: also whoever Hockey East picked, probably)

Ham n Egger of the Weak
Pretty much everyone else on Lowell who is not Doug Carr or Zack Kamrass — Hope they think long and hard about this one. It’s awful tough to stomach.
(Honorable mention: Hockey East officials, Amherst fans complaining about officiating again)

Noteworthy Hockey East Weekly Awards
Doug Carr, Matt Ferreira and Zack Kamrass were named Top Performers.
