Game #7 Pregame: Massachusetts at Merrimack

NORTH ANDOVER — The Merrimack College Warriors take on the UMass Minutemen tonight from Lawler Arena with the puck drop set for 7 p.m.

Merrimack made some minor lineup adjustments heading into tonight’s game. Regan Kimens and Ryan Nolan are back in the lineup, taking the place of Mark Hillier and Mick Messner. The other three forward lines will remain the same as it was last weekend.

On defense, Christian Felton will dress for Adam Arvedson. The pairings were mixed up a little bit as well, but Mike Brown and Declan Carlile will remain together.

Zach Borgiel (3.60, .865) will start in goal for the Warriors. It’s expected that he will be opposed by Matt Murray (2.77, .907). Hugo Ollas will dress tonight as Borgiel’s backup after he missed all of last weekend with an illness.
