Weekend in review: There wa snow Lowell game this week

February 11, 2013

Lowell’s game at BC got canceled on Friday night just because a couple feet of snow fell. Eagles running scared.

There were, however, three games played in Hockey East despite the eight cancelations league-wide on Friday. Saturday night, Vermont beat Maine 3-0 in Burlington, which sure doesn’t make us feel better about that 4-3 overtime loss eight days ago.

The next day, there were a pair of afternoon games, both of which had implications for the River Hawks. Providence played UNH to a 3-all draw in Durham behind another spectacular performance from Jon Gillies, and Merrimack beat Amherst 4-2 in North Andover, and are now just a point out of first place.

We are, as always, still waiting on Beanpot results tonight.

Our Weekly Awards
Player of the Week
Nick Saracino, Providence (freshman forward) — Two goals and an assist to play a role in all three goals at UNH is a pretty decent one-game weekend, in our opinion.
(Honorable mention: Mike Collins, Merrimack)

Rookie of the Week
Jon Gillies, Providence (freshman goaltender) — This kid is just something else. He made 41 saves in salvaging a tie his team had no business earning, a number of them of the highlight-reel variety.
(Honorable mention: Maxim Gaudreault, UNH)

Ham n Egger of the Weak
Host teams — What’s the matter, guys? Couldn’t handle a little snow? Get it together.
(Honorable mention: Maine)

Noteworthy Hockey East Weekly Awards
Because Lowell didn’t play, there were all awards given out this week were by definition not notable.
