NORTH ANDOVER — Merrimack welcomes Maine this weekend for a two-game series at Lawler Arena. The series kicks off tonight with a 7 p.m. puck drop. Maine is visiting Merrimack for the first time since 2017; last season in Orono, the teams split a pair of overtime games.
Craig Pantano will be back between the pipes for the Warriors this evening. This will be Pantano’s first start since Jan. 25 at Vermont; Logan Halladay had started the last two games (at Vermont on Jan. 26 and at UConn on Feb. 9). Merrimack head coach Scott Borek said the plan coming into the weekend would be to start two different goalies.
Jordan Seyfert will be back in the lineup for Merrimack after missing the last two games with a lower-body injury he suffered against Vermont on Jan. 25. Seyfert is penciled in as the Warriors’ extra forward tonight.
The D pairings, as they have for the last several weeks, remain the same. Merrimack only has six defensemen on the roster.
Terrence Murphy and John Gravallese will handle the officiating tonight. >
