Gameday: BU takes on Merrimack

The Terriers are back on the ice tonight, for the third time in seven days, to take on Merrimack in North Andover. BU beat the Warriors, 5-2, in an October matchup at Agganis Arena. Merrimack has nine conference losses, but six of them were one-goal losses--and they have excellent goaltending. Freshman netminder Kieran Millan will play tonight's game and tomorrow's home matchup with BC as well, according to Coach Jack Parker, quoted in The Daily Free Press.
