Game Day Preview: UMass Lowell

Tonight, Northeastern takes on UMass Lowell in their single game this weekend, aired on WBIN. Lowell is 2-0 in Hockey East, and 5-3 overall, after dropping a shocking 2 games against Sacred Heart (which won 3 games last year).

Lowell will be an interesting game because they’ll be a tough opponent, but they are definitely a half step below Boston College. With any luck, the Huskies really emphasized discipline this weekend, and the coaching staff is able to change things up.

One of the biggest problems was the Huskies’ inability to respond to changes made by the Eagles. Despite letting up a short haded goal, they kept the same formation and PP unit, which led to another SH goal.

If the Huskies are to do well this season, they’ll need to prove themselves adaptable to the shifting nature of hockey. Tonight will be a good chance to see whether they can respond well to the opposing team’s responses to Northeastern’s puck strategy.
