Merrimack currently sits in eighth place in the league standings with ten points and trails the Terriers by six points for the fifth and final first-round bye. MC does have three games in hand on the Terriers, playing only 13 league games thus far.

All in all, Merrimack comes into this weekend series with a 7-11-4 (4-7-2 HE) record and are 3-2-0 since the break. One of those wins includes a 3-2 debunking of the defending national champion Denver Pioneers in the Mile High City on December 30th.

A year ago, Merrimack stunningly swept BU in an extended two-game series while the Terriers were ranked number one in the country. The Warriors gutted out a 3-1 win at Lawler rink on Tuesday, January 24th, and then rolled 4-1 the following Friday at Agganis.
