BU at Merrimack Preview

Tonight, BU looks to get back on track in Hockey East when they trip to North Andover and take on the 17th ranked Merrimack College Warriors.
From The Vault

Quarterfinals. BU won the game 5-3 and the series in a two game
sweep. It was also Jack Parker's last home game as coach
of the Terriers.

Merrimack is undefeated on the year coming in with a 2-0-2 record. They smoked Clarkson on opening night 7-1 and followed that up with a 3-1 win against St. Lawrence the next night. Last weekend, they played Lowell twice and tied both games 1-1. 

Scouting The Warriors
Brian Christie leads the team in points with 6 after racking up 2 goals and 4 assists in four games played. Ben Bahe is the team leader in in goals scored with three. He has also has added an assist to get to four points on the year. Justin Hussar and Aaron Titcomb also has 4 points on the year.

In goal, Collin Delia has been solid to stay the least. In four games, he has a 0.973 goals against average and a .953 save percentage.

BU Notes
- Sean Maguire will get the nod in net tonight for his third start of the season. The first line will have a different look to it as Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson will center Danny O'Regan and Ahti Oksanen. Matt Lane will move down to the second line with Jordan Greenway and Ryan Cloonan. This is all coming from a Boston Hockey Blog tweet from yesterday.

It is interesting to see Quinn move down Lane. I thought he has been the team's best forward so far this year.

- Still no word on Nick Roberto.

The Last Time They Met...
was in the Hockey East Quarterfinals in March. BU dismantled the Warriors with a 6-2 win in Game One and followed that up with a 5-0 blanking the next night. BU has not lost to Merrimack since December of 2013.
