Merrimack won the season series last year 2-0-1, and Warriors have won 3 straight at Matthews (always a tough place to play). Sam Marotta looked strong in net in the win over Union, and nice to see them get 4 goals as offense might be a struggle this season. Fan favorite Bigos might be out. That should help keep the penalties down.
Which Rawlings shows up for the Huskies?
I like MC in this one, 3-2.

2013, 2014, 2017: UML Hockey: Hockey East Champions!
Per the usual with these two teams, I expect it to be a physical borderline chippy affair. With Bigos potentially out, it will be interesting to see who gets inserted as the 6th D-man amongst the froshs. Regardless, I think the top two pairings will receive the bulk of the mins. As is typically the case with Rawlings if you don't get on him early he can get into a good groove and burn you. That combined with this being the HE opening night, and Matthews probably bumping, you have to hope MC can come out strong or it could be a tough one. Wouldn't be surprised to see yet another OT game between these two squads. Prediction: MC 2- NU 1 OT
Big game for both teams tonight. Games like tonight can bite you in the ***** when looking at seeding down the road in late February. I think Merrimack will start Marotta tonight and let both goalies play in Alaska and home against Vermont. I think it will be a close game tonight and it could go either way. Both teams have a game under their belt, but I think Marotta wins MC another 2-1

Wednesday night home opener...well done, Hockey East.
Because EVERY Hockey East season should open up at historic Matthews Arena. On a Wednesday. That is why. Where else should league play open? Lowell on a Tuesday? Please.

any free video for this one?
There's always free video for every NU home game on the web. Wish more HE schools did this.
