Mercyhurst @ NU : 7PM

Post by le »

Match Preview
• The Purple Eagles and Lakers renew their rivalry Wednesday night when the two teams meet for the 37th time in the first leg of a home-and-home series.
• Niagara and Mercyhurst will meet two days later at Dwyer Arena for a 7 p.m. start.
• Niagara swept the four-game season series last year to improve to 16-15-4 all-time against Mercyhurst.
• Niagara is 1-1-1 on the season after defeating No. 7 Clarkson 4-1 on Wednesday, December 9. In that contest, junior goalie Mike Corson picked up his first career win as he made 23 saves in his season debut.
• Mercyhurst defeated No. 18 Bowling Green to open the season but have since dropped three straight non-conference games. Wednesday night's contest will be the first AHA matchup for the Lakers.

NU down 2-1 after two periods but leads in other key areas:
FO'S Won 25-15
SOG 28-19
Each team is 0-3 on PP in a fairly clean game.
Where is our alumni that are always contributors to game commentary?
If there are issues with how NU has responded in the area of social justice, I would like to know.
Whatever the issue, I want to hear from you.

Games are starting early during COVID-19 to avoid overnight hotels and also lowers expense line when there are no revenues.
