Took my son last night to the ULowell/UAlaska Anchorage game. I think Lowell came in ranked #13 in the country, and Alaska showed up with a 2-12 record.
I've never seen anything like it. Lowell outshot them 54-12 (yes, not a typo) and lost the game 4-2 (last one was an empty netter). Lowell led after 1 period 1-0, outshooting them 18-3.
They led 2-1 after 2, outshooting them 41-8. Then Alaska got the "you let them hang around goal" to tie it up, the flukey bounce rebound goal to take the lead, and the empty net to seal it.
The goalie for Alaska, whose last name is "Whale" (which is fucking awesome by the way), stood on his head like almost nothing I've ever seen. He was their best player on the ice by a margin so wide it was ridiculous. Even the 2 he gave up he just had no chance it, and Lowell also hit 3 different pipes on slap shots.
They play again this weekend, and I imagine Lowell beats them like 8-0, but wow, what a fucking weird one to be at.
