Game Recap

Huskies Come From Behind, 4-1

Friday, February 28, 2003

Boston, Mass. -- Northeastern (10-20-3, 5-16-2) scored four goals over the final five minutes including a pair of empty-net goals to come back and defeat Merrimack (12-15-6, 7-12-4) by a score of 4-1 on Friday night. Ryan Cordeiro scored the lone goal for the Warriors and Joe Exter finished with 29 saves in the Hockey East loss.

After close to 50 minutes of scoreless hockey, Merrimack took a 1-0 lead at the 9:45 mark of the third period on Cordeiro's third goal of the season. Lucas Smith carried the puck into the Husky zone up the right boards and fed Brendon Clark streaking through the slot. Clark continued the puck onto Cordeiro on the left side of the net and the senior one-timed it past Husky netminder Mike Gilhooly (25 saves).

Brian Sullivan tied it at the 14:21 mark of the final period with a slap shot from the point. Sullivan fired the puck through a screen and into the lower left side of the net for his first score of the year. Mike Morris netted the game-winner at 16:05, taking advantage of a Merrimack turnover on its own blue line. Morris went in alone on Exter, got him to commit with a fake then skated around him on his stick side and dumped it in the net.

The Huskies added a pair of empty net goals at the 19:13 and 19:41 marks to seal the victory.

The Warriors host Massachusetts Saturday night in their final home game of the season. Game time is 7:00 p.m.

NOTES: The Warriors close the regular season on the road at 2-12-3, 1-9-2 in league play...They will go on the road for the Hockey East quarterfinals...Merrimack has scored just four goals in its last three games and is 0-2-1 over that stretch...Nick Pomponio remained sidelined with a rib injury and should return for the playoffs...Blake Stewart (shoulder) and Derek Kilduff (foot) sustained injuries in the game and their status is unknown...Merrimack won the season series with NU, 2-1-0...Exter had held the Huskies to just one goal in 174:21 this season before Sullivan's goal tonight...It marked Exter's first loss ever to the Huskies (4-1-0).
