AMHERST, Mass. — Merrimack and UMass close out a home-and-home series tonight at the Mullins Center. The puck drop is set for 7 p.m. UMass won the first game of the series, 2-1, last night at Lawler Arena on Colin Felix’s goal with 4.7 seconds left in regulation.
Merrimack is rolling out the same personnel as it did last night, but Scott Borek did mix up some of the lines. Logan Drevitch will now skate with Matt Copponi and Ryan Nolan. It appeared that Drevitch was moved to that line during last night’s game, and was with that group when he scored his first goal of the season in the third period.
Devlin O’Brien will take Drevitch’s spot on a line with Liam Walsh and Filip Forsmark.
One quick housekeeping note … our live coverage will be a little late tonight. I hope to have it up and running by the second period, but subscribers will receive an email once it goes live.
