Wow...as a Merrimack grad and a fan of a team that I've followed for nearly 20 years, I must admit that I haven't been this excited about this team in a VERY long time, if ever. As of this morning, Merrimack sits only 1 point out of a home playoff position, have a 5-1-1 record over their last 7 (when it means most) and have arguably the best freshman, not only in Hockey East, but in the country. Da Costa has sparked this team more than any player in memory. The way he can move from end to end so effortlessly, leaving defenders and goalies in his wake, is amazing...I know he is at the top of the list for a lot of the scouts at the games, but I hope he stays for at least 1 or 2 more years and shows what MC can do. Coach D has been amazing in his recruiting efforts, and this one is the TOP of the list. Cream of the crop in the country, and he ended up at Mack.
3 games to go...at home against Maine and Providence and on the road against Providence..if they can squeeze 4 more points out this season, they have a shot at having a home playoff game, where they currently have one of the best home records in the country!!! CRAZY TIMES AT THE 'MACK!!!
