Scouting the Warriors
Ryan Flanigan is the team's total points leader with 19 (7g 12a) in 19 games played. Karl Stollery is a close second in the points race, coming in with 16 - five goals and eleven assists- in 19 games. Jesse Todd is the team leader in goals with nine in 18 games. I once thought Maine's Joey Diamond was the league's dirtiest player. I have since changed my mind on that and the award now goes to Merrimack's Kyle Bigos. Bigos is a big, bulky defenseman with a decent shot, but he is known more for his knack for vicious penalties. Earlier this year against BU, Bigos was tossed for drilling Wade Megan into the boards blatantly from behind. On the year, Bigos has committed 36 penalties for a total of 86 minutes in the sin bin. Against BU alone, he has racked up 19 penalty minutes this year.
In The Cage
Senior Joe Cannata is once again piecing together a solid season in the Merrimack net. So far this season, he has a 13-5-5 record with a .929 save percentage and a 2.02 goals against average. .
BU will be without Freshman defenseman Alexx Privitera, who suffered a broken wrist in last weekend's series with Maine. Also, the Terriers will miss Max Nicastro, who suffered a shoulder injury last Friday night.

If your headed up to Lawler tomorrow, wear red. Merrimack is attempting to "White out" the rink, so stand out and be loud. Go Terriers.
