Tonight's Lineup & Game Notes

BU-Lowell Game Notes are now available along with links to the audio Webcast, the CSTV All-Access video Webcast and the CSTV gametracker. The Daily Free Press preview article indicates a change in tonight's lineup. Matt Gilroy, pressed into service at forward following injuries to Bryan Ewing and Brandon Yip, moves up to the White Line with Chris Higgins and Jason Lawrence, while Ryan Weston is reunited with Brian McGuirk and John McCarthy on the Orange Line. The first and fourth lines remain intact as do the defensive pairings.

Gilroy brings good offensive skills to the second line, similar to Yips. And, like Yip, he can move over to the point on powerplays with Popko centering the second powerplay unit, as he did last weekend.

Dan McGoff, who entered the lineup as Brian Strait's partner, was effective moving the puck out of the zone against Merrimack and seemed to hold his own
when the Warriors were on the attack. He and Strait even spent some time on the powerplay. McGoff came to BU with a strong reputation. Circumstances have worked against him his first two year. Now presented with an opportunity, we'll see how he responds.
