    Hampus Gustafsson and Jordan Masters tango for a bit, and we’ll be 4v4 for 2:00 with 6:17 to play in the 1st.

    Mathieu Foget dances around the D on a really pretty play, slips one past Pashovitz.

  24. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 4:32 pm

    After a scrum, I think there was an initial call on ASU that might be MC on the PP.

  25. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 4:32 pm

    Matt Cronin gets the lone assist on that goal

  26. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 4:33 pm

  48. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 5:21 pm

    Jordan Masters goes in hard on Vogler for a rebound, and it appeared that Aaron Titcomb literally broke him in half with a cross check.

  49. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 5:21 pm

    MC has 3 defensemen in the box.

  50. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 5:26 pm

    Interference on Matt Tibbet puts ASU back on the PP with 12:34 remaining.

  57. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 5:52 pm

    Titcomb, sorry, on the inference.

  58. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 5:58 pm

    ASU on the PP with 8:09 left. I think that was on Vogler.

  59. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 5:58 pm

    Ludvig Larsson will serve it

  60. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 6:01 pm

    January 31, 2016 at 6:06 pm

    ASU’s Stevens getting the gate after some rough stuff in the in the corner.

  65. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 6:06 pm

    2 and 10 it looks like. MC PP

  66. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 6:10 pm

    Final — Merrimack 10, ASU 0. SOG 40-21 MC

  67. Mike McMahon

    January 31, 2016 at 6:10 pm

    And with that, Merrimack’s 10-game losing streak comes to an end.
