This weekend was a tale of two completely different games. Unfortunately, I was not at Saturday's game and I have no info on the game other than BU lost 6-3 and Dylan Zink netted a hat trick for Lowell. I was in the frozen hell that is Orono Maine in February playing two of my own games. We lost 5-4 and 13-9. I had 11 points in two games and 6 goals in game two… No, none of that was a typo. Club hockey is interesting to say the least.
