Game Recap

Exter, Crusco Lead Warriors, 3-1

Friday, February 7, 2003

North Andover, Mass. -- Joe Exter (Cranston, RI) made 39 saves including 20 in the third period and Steve Crusco (Waltham, MA) scored twice to lead Merrimack (11-11-5, 6-8-3) to a 3-1 Hockey East victory over Northeastern (9-16-2, 4-13-1). Nick Cammarata (Canton, MA) scored the third goal for the Warriors while Mike Morris (Braintree, MA) broke up the shutout with a late third period goal for the Huskies in front of 1,189 in North Andover.

Crusco helped to set up his own goal by winning a face-off in the first period back to Rob LaLonde (Williamsville, NY) at the left point. LaLonde ripped a slapshot that was saved by Gibson. Crusco then darted straight to the net and flipped in the rebound to give the Warriors a 1-0 lead 16:16 into play.

Crusco added his second of the game 50 seconds into the middle period. After Tim Reidy (Shrewsbury, MA) poked a loose puck to Crusco at the left circle, Crusco spun and sent the puck along the ice and into the left side of the net through a screen. Cammarata gave the Warriors a three-goal cushion at the 17:08 mark of the second period, wristing home his second goal of the season from the right circle after leading a rush.

With 5:02 to play in the game, Northeastern pulled goaltender Keni Gibson (Stittsville, ONT) for an extra skater. Exter was up to the task, stopping 20 of the 21 shots he faced in the final period. Morris broke the shutout with 3:56 left and NU skating 6-on-4 when he knocked in a rebound in front on the power play.

Merrimack returns to action Sunday afternoon at Maine. Game time is 2:00 p.m.
