At 7pm, the Huskies will take on the BC Eagles in front of a sold out Matthews Arena. Northeastern has some bad memories of BC. They lost in OT to them in the Beanpot final last year. And then the lost a crazy game to them in Hockey East semifinals. Tonight, they will get a chance to beat the Eagles at home.
The Eagles are coming off a win vs UMass. They are on the top teams in the country. They also feature John Gaurdreau. Little “Goo” was committed to come to Northeastern before Cronin left. When he decommitted, he took a tour of Hockey East to see where he should go, including play by play on Twitter. Of course, he choose BC. And of course, he is off to a great start. He will hear it from the Doghouse tonight.
The Huskies come off a tough loss to Merrimack and they may be in need of a shakeup. We can’t confirm this yet, but it sounds like Cody Ferriero could make a return to the lineup. Zak Stone would likely make way. The McLaughlin line needs a shakeup. Heres what I would like to see tonight.
I think Dong deserves a return to the lineup. Might be a good night to rest Vrolyk. He spent a lot of time on the PK last night and he is probably a little worn down. The defense should stay the same. And Witt should start obviously. Just kidding…but not really.
Husky fans: Wear RED. Get there early and be loud. Its going to be a great atmosphere. And it would be a great time for a big home upset. Follow us on twitter @HuskyHockeyBlog for lineup and game updates.
