BOSTON, MA – Once the second period commenced, Merrimack was whistled twice, but so was Northeastern.
Although, despite the early penalties, the Warriors finally got on the board at 4:20 when Quinn Gould capitalized on a broken play on the right side of Chris Rawling’s cage, which resulted in Merrimack’s first Hockey East strike of the season.
The Warriors continued its rally 11 minutes later when Justin Mansfield notched a short side goal at 15:08, which brought our score to 3-2.
Northeastern appeared to take an enormous step backward in the period, which isn’t a good sign for the final 20 minutes. The Warriors have the momentum, so it’ll be interesting to see if they can tally two more goals to earn an important conference road win.
