Boston College Women’s Hockey Preview: Merrimack

After a tie & a win against BU, BC will face a surprisingly decent Merrimack team

FloHockey: Women's Ice Hockey-Quinnipiac at Boston College Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Last weekend, BC women’s hockey skated to a surprising tie and win with BU. The Eagles will now face a confusing Merrimack team in a home and away series. The Warriors have a mediocre record, but have earned victories against Minnesota and BU and skated to a tie with St. Lawrence. This should be a pair of easy victories for the Eagles, but if this season has taught us anything it’s that NCAA hockey is crazy.

How Much Does Laura Hate the Opposing Mascot?

Did you know that I have very strong opinions on mascots? Now you do!

Merrimack Warrior 5/5

This is not a good mascot. He’s creepy, but not in a fun way.
