The UMass Lowell River Hawks lost to the Northeastern Huskies in another incredible hockey game at TD Banknorth Garden.  As a result the resurgent Huskies take the Hockey East tournament, defeating the River Hawks 3-2 in the final.

The River Hawks gave it their all and are now focused on the NCAA tournament which gets underway this week. It was a bitter sweet but inspirational experience for this photojournalist, both on and off the ice. On to the NCAA tournament!
