Game Notes

  • Ludvig Larsson’s goal was his first in over two months and third of his freshman season; the last time he lit the lamp was on Dec. 20 against Canisius at home.
  • Freshman goaltender Drew Vogler turned away all 26 shots he saw to pick up his first career shutout and first by any Merrimack goaltender since 2015 graduate Rasmus Tirronen blanked Vermont in a 0-0 tie last Feb. 21 in Burlington.
  • Merrimack will host a home playoff series for only the third time since joining the Division I ranks in 1984-85; the previous two were in 1996-97 (Boston College, loss) and 2010-11 (Maine, win).
