AMHERST, Mass. — Merrimack travels to UMass tonight in a matchup against the Minutemen with critical Hockey East points on the line.
Drew Vogler will start his second straight game for the Warriors; this will be the first time Vogler has started back-to-back games since October. Other lineup changes include some swaps in the top-six, with Jace Hennig moving to a line with Ludvig Larsson and Cole McBride. Derek Petti moves to the Brett Seney line, centering Seney and Sami Tavernier. Logan Coomes will also enter the lineup for the Warriors tonight.
Merrimack will utilize the same defensive unit as Saturday’s game at Maine, meaning that Johnathan Kovacevic will miss his third straight game with a lower-body injury.
