UNH lost its third straight game and fell to 1-4-0.
Ryan McGrath beat UNH goalie Casey DeSmith, the junior from Rochester, on a breakaway with 8:08 left in the third period to give his team a 4-2 lead.

Lowell answered quickly with a Josh Hallstrom power play goal at 8:25 with UNH's Kevin Goumas serving a penalty for interference.
Lowell upped its lead to 3-1 on a Jake Suter goal 8:15 into the second period.
Goumas scored on the power play with 2:38 left in the second period to cut the lead to 3-2. Matt Willows and Eric Knodel had assists.
