Weekend in review: Not cool

January 16, 2012

Lowell embarrassed itself this weekend by completely folding up tents 30 minutes into a game it was running, eventually losing in overtime, 3-2, to the Vermont Catamounts in Burlington on Friday for some horrible reason.

But at least normalcy returned on Sunday when Providence, which earlier in the week had lost 1-0 to visiting UNH, brained the Catamounts 5-2 on Sunday. UNH, meanwhile, hosted and smoked Dartmouth Saturday, 4-1.

Northeastern was another team that struggled mightily, losing to BU 4-3 at home then dropping a 2-1 decision to BC at Fenway Park, because you can never ever have enough games there. Oddly, the Eagles’ win came after it got trounced at home 4-0 by Amherst. BU completed its small weekend sweep over other Beanpot schools by downing Harvard, also 4-3 (though this in overtime) at the Bright Center in Cambridge.

And in the only complete series of the weekend, Merrimack took three points from Maine in North Andover, winning 6-2 and drawing 2-all.


Our Weekly Awards
Player of the Week
Karl Stollery, Merrimack (senior defenseman) — This is the first week in a long, long time we cannot in good conscience list a Lowell player. That is because even if a Lowell player had played out of his mind and scored a million goals, a loss to Vermont, which is a terrible hockey team, would disqualify him. So this jerk from Merrimack gets it because he got a goal and three assists.
(Honorable mention: Ryan Flanigan, Merrimack; Wade Megan, BU)

Rookie of the Week
Garrett Vermeersch, Northeastern (freshman forward or whatever, probably) — Again, who cares about this idiot, but at least his crappy team didn’t lose to Vermont.
(Honorable mention: Ross Mauerman, Providence)

Ham n Egger of the Weak
Lowell — Ugh.
(Honorable mention: Lowell; Lowell; Lowell; Lowell; Lowell; Lowell)

Noteworthy Hockey East Weekly Awards
Doug Carr was named a top performer which is better than any River Hawk deserves.

How we voted
For every home game, UMLHockey.com wants to know who your three stars of the game for the River Hawks are. All this voting is counted up and given as the UMLHockey.com Player of the Year award at the end of the season, so let’s take it super-seriously and just see if we can’t get those vote totals boosted this year, eh?

No home game so we didn’t vote.
