Merrimack will face Bentley on Saturday night at Lawler Arena, with the puck drop scheduled for 7 p.m. Merrimack is coming off last weekend’s split; the Warriors beat Brown, 7-1, and fell to UMass, 4-3. Bentley hasn’t played since the first week of December. The Falcons swept Mercyhurst prior to the semester break.
Bentley was supposed to face UMass Lowell this weekend and Merrimack was scheduled to face Clarkson and St. Lawrence, but this game came together after both programs lost games on the scheduled due to COVID-19 protocols.
