NORTH ANDOVER — Welcome inside Lawler Arena, where this afternoon Merrimack College (6-5-0) will welcome New Hampshire (4-6-3)
The Warriors have shuffled the lines considerably. Joe Cucci moves to the first-line center position and Jesse Todd moves back to a more familiar right wing (he played RW for a large portion of last season alongside Rob Ricci and opposite Chris Barton). J.C. Robitaille moves to the third-line right side with Matt Moulakelis (C) and Pat Kimball (LW).
Finally, John Heffernan returns to the lineup on the left side of Justin Bonitatibus (C) and Francois Ouimet (RW).
Joe Cannata (3-4-0, 3.25, .895) will start for the Warriors. Brian Foster (4-6-3, 3.70, .884) will start for UNH.
