The Warriors are coming off the bye week but will roll out almost an identical lineup from the game at Maine on Feb. 5. The only change is Mac Welsher being inserted back into the lineup in place of Nikita Borodayenko. Welsher has been out of the lineup since Jan. 21 against Northeastern with an apparent upper-body injury.
Zachary Borgiel is the projected starter for the Warriors. Borgiel will enter tonight’s game with a 2.12 GAA and .907 save percentage in 14 games. BU will go with Drew Commesso. He has appeared in 22 games this season and he has a 2.67 GAA and a .900 save percentage.
Officials: Steve Rouillard (R), Jeremy Tufts (R), Bill Kingdon (L), Jeff McCorkle (L)
