Pregame: Boston University at Merrimack

NORTH ANDOVER — Merrimack and Boston University will begin a home-and-home series tonight at Lawler Arena, with the puck drop scheduled for 7 p.m. This will be Merrimack’s first home-and-home series of the season.

Merrimack’s lines look almost identical to last Saturday’s come-from-behind win over Colgate. The forward lines are exactly the same, which some minor shakeups in the defensive pairings. All of the personnel on D are the same as it was last Saturday night.

Zach Borgiel will get the start in goal for the Warriors. He’ll be backed up by Troy Kobryn. Hugo Ollas is scratched tonight and word was that he did not participate in practice on Thursday. We’ll get a further update on his status after tonight’s game.

Our live coverage will be posted at 6:45 p.m. ET. We’ll have BU’s lineup posted in our live coverage. The Terriers will be without Jay O’Brien and Luke Tuch, who were ruled out for the weekend due to injuries according to BU head coach Albie O’Connell.
