Weekend in review: A near-disaster

October 15, 2012

Lowell somehow, disappointingly, only managed to draw a rather poor Vermont team at Tsongas Center on Friday, 1-1, for reasons that are too numerous to list in brief here. Suffice it to say, we were unhappy with the result.

One team that had to be very happy with its results in the last week is Northeastern, which used two home games to knock off a pair of ranked teams, downing Merrimack 4-2 last Wednesday in the league’s opener, then beating BC 3-1 on Saturday. And in the only other Hockey East game of the weekend, BU beat Providence 4-2 at Agganis, to the surprise of basically no one.

In non-conference action, UNH swept St. Cloud 5-3 and 4-2 in Durham. More importantly, though, Maine got its first win of the season over Army in the consolation game at the Ice Breaker, 4-3. This after losing to Notre Dame 1-0 the night before.

In non-conference games that shouldn’t even count, Amherst Beat UConn 4-1 at Mullins Center, and Providence pounded Sacred Heart 8-2 at Schneider. No one cared about either result.


Our Weekly Awards
Player of the Week
Doug Carr, Lowell (sophomore goalie) — If Lowell hadn’t had Carr between the pipes — okay, or Chad Ruhwedel on defense — it might very well have lost on Friday because the offense was lucky to score even one goal against Vermont. It was pretty ugly.
(Honorable mention: Ross Mauermann, Providence; Dalton Speelman, UNH)

Rookie of the Week
Brady Hoffman (freshman goalie) — Not that Lowell even came close to really testing him, but 38 saves is a good number.
(Honorable mention: Michael Fallon, Lowell)

Ham n Egger of the Weak
Parker Milner — Maybe it’s just us but Best Goalies In The League shouldn’t be giving up goals from outside their own defensive zone. What a clown. Doug Carr owns this kid.
(Honorable mention: Maine, Lowell)

Noteworthy Hockey East Weekly Awards
Doug Carr and Josh Holmstrom were Top Performers.
