Merrimack defeating BU is a big win for us. BU now one point ahead of us (even # of games), and we have a home-and-home with them. It's in our hands now. Take three points from BU and we have a shot at home ice for HE playoffs. It's all up to us next weekend in Orono. Two points will be OK; three great. Most compressed HE standings since UConn joined in 2014. Love college hockey.
