Game 24 Pregame: Lineup and game notes ahead of Merrimack at Northeastern
BOSTON — Merrimack and Northeastern open a home-and-home series tonight at Matthews Arena. This weekend will complete the regular-season series between the teams. Merrimack won the first meeting, 4-1, on Oct. 28.
Puck Drop: 7 p.m. ET
Referees: Marty Hughes, Geoffrey Miller
Linesmen: Anthony Valle, Jeff McCorckle
— Brady Hunter is back in the lineup for the Warriors for the first time since Dec. 2 at Boston University. He’ll skate as the extra forward. From a personnel standpoint, he’s in for Chase Stevenson, who played both games against BC last week but is not in the lineup tonight. Borek said last month Stevenson would likely be a game-by-game decision, as he’s playing through an undisclosed injury.
— Merrimack shuffled its lines again. Ben Brar is now on the wing with Matt Copponi and Filip Forsmark. Mark Hillier will center Ty Daneault and Michael Citara.
