Game Recap

Huskies Defeat Warriors, 4-1

Friday, February 18, 2005

Boston, Mass. - Merrimack lost to Northeastern 4-1 in a Hockey East contest on Friday night in Matthews Arena. The loss, combined with a 3-2 Providence win over Maine, eliminates the Warriors from Hockey East playoff contention.

Seniors Jason Guerriero (Manorville, N.Y.) and Tim Judy (Bowie, Md.) each scored a goal and added a pair of assists for the Huskies, who improved to 13-14-4 overall, 8-8-3 Hockey East. Merrimack fell to 8-23-2, 1-19-1 with its 11th consecutive loss. The longest losing streak in Warrior history is 12 games.

After a scoreless first period, Judy started the scoring with a shorthanded goal in the second. Guerriero faked a slap shot on a 2-on-1, then passed to Judy on the right, who beat Merrimack sophomore goaltender Jim Healey (Holyrood, N.F.) with a shot between the legs.

Merrimack junior forward Brent Gough (St. Albert, Alta.), however, tied the score on the same power play. Junior defenseman Bryan Schmidt (Bloomington, Minn.) took a shot from the point which was blocked in front. Rookie forward Mike Fournier (Anchorage, Alaska) took a whack at the loose puck before Gough finished the scramble, deflecting the puck off Northeastern senior goaltender Keni Gibson (Stittsville, Ont.) off a sharp angle from the right side.

The Huskies regained the lead less than three minutes later when sophomore defenseman Steve Birnstill (Commack, N.Y.) sent a pass from right to left and found senior forward Jared Mudryk (Leduc, Alta.) uncovered at the far post for his eighth goal of the season.

Freshman forward Jimmy Russo (South Weymouth, Mass.) gave Northeastern a 3-1 lead just 1:22 later, poking a loose puck in the crease past Healey.

Guerriero scored a power play goal early in the third period, tipping Judy's slap shot into the net to wrap up the scoring.

Birnstill and junior forward Mike Morris (Braintree, Mass.) both had a pair of assists for Northeastern.

Healey made 26 saves for the Warriors, while Gibson stopped 29 shots.

Merrimack will host Providence at 7 p.m. next Friday in a Hockey East contest, while the Huskies face New Hampshire tomorrow night in Boston.
