WORCESTER, Mass. — The Merrimack men’s hockey team will take on Holy Cross tonight inside the Hart Center here in Worcester. The Warriors are looking to extend their seven-game unbeaten streak in the series, dating back to 2006-07. The programs first met during the 1984-85 season.
The Crusaders and Warriors last met during the 2019-20 season, a game which Merrimack won, 3-1.
Merrimack will start Hugo Ollas in goal, after it was revealed earlier in the day that sophomore goaltender Zachary Borgiel will miss the next two games due to COVID protocols.
Holy Cross was swept by RIT this past weekend. The Crusaders are 2-10 on the year under first-year head coach Bill Riga, who was hired this past summer after spending over a decade as the top assistant at Quinnipiac.
