Weekend Preview: Home and Home vs. #7 Merrimack

I won’t go into the stats much, for those I suggest you go to the excellent breakdown here. Instead, I thought I’d present a few points about how the Huskies need to play:

-We need to see a solid, consistent game from someone. I’d say Rawlings will likely see the start tonight, but no matter who we see, they need to play a terrific game tonight. Not only is Merrimack’s offense pretty good, but Northeastern’s defense has been pretty bad so far, and the goalie will need to step up until the defense can prove themselves.

-Going off that, our defense really needs to step it up. I’ve basically said this every week, and complained about it every postgame, but the defense needs to play consistent and shut down the other team. Enough said.

-I’m hoping to see some consistent lines. Our top line has been providing a lot of  offense the last few weeks, but the others lines are constantly moving around. We really need to start seeing a consistent few lines.

-Finally, a PP goal would be really nice, even if it was just one.

I won’t make any predictions this week. If Northeastern wants any points this weekend they really need to step up and prepare to muck it up with a grinding team like Merrimack
