Notebook

— Northeastern is now 52-42-10 all-time against Merrimack.

— Northeastern extends its unbeaten streak to eight games (7-0-1), tied for the second longest active winning streak in the nation and tied for the sixth longest in team history. The Huskies have won six straight games, which is tied for the fifth longest winning streak in program history.

— Merrimack has now lost nine straight games for the first time in nine years; the last time it did so was when it dropped the final nine games of the regular season in the 2006-07 campaign – the Warriors finished 3-27-4 that year and did not qualify for the Hockey East Tournament.

— After starting the year 3-0-1 on the road, Merrimack has now gone 0-8-1 in games played away from Lawler Rink since the middle of November (7 away games, 1 neutral-site game).

— Merrimack was held to its lowest shot total of the season (16), recording only three shots on goal in the first period and four in the third frame. Brett Seney finished with two goals on the weekend, upping his season total to six, while Foget recorded his first point in eight games after last registering an assist at UConn on Dec. 11.
