  • Merrimack v. University of North Dakota

    No series thread yet?

    North Dakota's annual exhibition against the Washington Generals is over. It's now time to turn to the games that count.

    Am I correct that this is the first meeting between the schools? I know virtually nothing about Merrimack's team other than they were picked to finish quite low in Hockey East. Any input from Merrimack posters would be appreciated.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

      Given UND's history of slow starts and MC's resurgence as a pretty good team, this could be an interesting weekend.
      The Mack has good goaltending and D. Will try to keep ND opportunities on the perimeter. Not a lot of scoring from the Mack, but that may change this year. Very young last season but they have some kids that can light the lamp.

        merrimack for all you und fans is much improved over recent years... they have upgraded there talent level the last few years with some nice recruiting classes..just 4 years ago the entire team was ready to walk away from the program if there was not a coaching change, crazy as it seems..mark dennehy has turned the attitude and talenet level around... they have outstanding goaltending whick keeps them in most games..they play a defensive style, keeping things to the outside, and block a ton of shots...with the new higher skilled talent dennehy has opened up the system, for attacking rather than sit back...they are a much better skating team now, and lost 12 one goal games last year...they are known as the hardest working teams in hockey east, and can play with anybody....

            Hey, I think North Dakota won about the same number of one goal games last year. Sounds like a plan!

            Just looking at Merrimack's site, it does look like they return most of their team from a year ago, and they certainly played traditional HE powers like BC, BU and UNH tough last year.

            With UND as one of the younger teams in the WCHA this year, should be a good early season test.

                People talk about Merrimack's lack of scoring but this team is capable of suddenly scoring multiple goals in spurts.

                    I fail to see how a bunch of Jesus freaks can really even compete with UND. Why is this series even being played. Were any of the Miss Merrimack players even born the last time the team had a winning season?

                    Good to see Mike McMahon is stealing the Albany Riverrats logo. It's always nice to see someone using others work for their own personal website.
