This weekend, the Northeastern University Huskies travel to North Country to face off against St. Lawrence of the ECAC Hockey League. Much like Holy Cross was a step up in competition from Alabama-Huntsville, St. Lawrence is a step up from Holy Cross. An early road trip is always a good opportunity to bond, so seeing how these players interact will be interesting. They play well together already, but even more cohesion and stability is always good.
Look for the same lines as the previous two weeks. Witt and Roy will likely split the weekend as they did last weekend. The Huskies need to show their Power Play is as deadly against increasingly tougher foes, and rein in the atrocious numbers of penalties they themselves take.
This weekend is a good look into how the Huskies might play against BC, which will again be another few steps above St. Lawrence. A good result here could do well for Northeastern’s hopes next weekend.
