I do believe it's a new and improved Lowell. And while the NHL Lockout helps, I don't think it's the whole story - I think it's Coach Rowe. I think he encourages a scrappy, gritty game (unlike Coach Smith, last year) and the boys play it well.
They do need to tone down the penalties, though.
So far, I think Krahn's the go-to-goalie. I think Ward needs more seasoning. Krahn just looks sharper in net, and I think it's because he's been around longer.
Great to see Lynn Loyns back from heart surgery. Go Lynn!
Mike Zigomanis' goal tonight made him the new record holder for most goals scored by a Lock Monster. Congrats to him.
Justin Taylor had a sweet deke on the penalty shot on Marc-Andre Fleury tonight. I didn't think he was going to move that way (and neither did Fleury, apparently).
Oh yeah: And official Captains and Alternates: Captain: Brad Fast (Carolina) Alternate: Chuck Kobasew (Calgary) Alternate: Ryan Bayda (Carolina)
And I've yet to meet my ... mmmmm ... idol. My friend ran into him today, but he left before I could see him. He'll be playing soon, though!
Commodore? They had an interview with him on the Cybercast...seems like a very nice guy.
ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH. Argh! Argh! Argh! That means he was with Ryan right behind our section. Argh!!!!!!!! And Phooey!
Hmmm about Kobasew and Fast. Didn't know that. That's pretty cool. I'm heading to Portland on Saturday, so I'll see that for myself (can't possibly make it to Providence on Friday night. Not with the nasty traffic).
