The time has come. Playoff hockey is upon us. The Warriors have had a successful regular season, going 18-14-1. Their most notable wins were their huge victories against UMass Lowell and Providence. In that span, they won five games in a row, also defeating Bentley once. Their 18 wins is tied for the second most wins in program history. As a result, Merrimack Athletics announced that Coach Scott Borek has extended his contract with the team.
This is the first time the Warriors have hosted a playoff game since 2017 against the University of New Hampshire Wildcats. The game also marks the first time since 2018 that Merrimack has taken part in the tournament.
The Warriors are set to take on the University of Maine Black Bears on March 9 at 7:00PM inside Lawler Arena. The theme is White Out. If the Warriors win, they face UMass Lowell at Tsongas Arena in Lowell on March 12. Time is TBD. Go Mack!
