From the drop of the puck, it was easy to see this wasn't going to be BU's night.

BU's ineptitude shouldn't underscore how well Lowell played. They did everything right. The River Hawks never allowed BU to set up in the attacking zone and they broke up rushes through the neutral zone. Defensively Lowell was perfect. Every puck that needed to get out got out and Boyle stopped everything that came his way. Still, a better effort from BU was needed. They made Lowell's job a lot easier that in should have been.
Maybe a break is what this team needs. They came out of winter break and played their best hockey of the year. The year isn't over. Here's to hoping we don't get shipped to Cincinnati.
