BC looks to get back in the win column in their third game in five nights as they host the 1-4-2 UMass Lowell River Hawks. Lowell hasn't exactly gotten off to a fast start in 2010, with their lone win coming at home against Providence in overtime. Lowell has already lost 4 Hockey East games, including an 8-2 season opening loss to Maine and two losses to BU by a combined score of 7-2.
Seems like the perfect spot for the Eagles to have a big night and get a much needed win.
Prediction: Boston College 6, UMass Lowell 1
