Pregame: Merrimack vs. Maine
NORTH ANDOVER — Merrimack and Maine will close out a two-game series tonight at Lawler Arena. The puck is scheduled to drop shortly after 7 p.m.
Zachary Borgiel will make the start in goal for the Warriors tonight. Borgiel is coming off a strong effort last weekend in a win over BC. Maine will counter with Victor Ostman, who made 22 saves last night in Merrimack’s 1-0 win over the Black Bears.
Defensively, Kevin Sadovski will enter the lineup for the second time this season, skating in place of Trevor Griebel on a pairing with Slava Demin. Up front, Tyler Young enters the lineup for Hugo Esselin on a line with Mark Hillier and Mac Welsher.
