Terriers return to conference action tonight, traveling to Lawlor Arena for a matchup with Merrimack College. Last season BU won two of the three regular-season meetings between the teams. Game time is 7:30 p.m. for contest, which will air locally on WBIN-TV.

The Warriors are led by junior forward Mike Collins, Hockey East’s top scorer with 12 points and a one-time teammate of BU’s Garrett Noonan with both Catholic Memorial High School and the BCHL Vernon Vipers’ 2010 RBC Cup Champions.
