Merrimack's season ends at BU

(Continued)

Parker’s last hurrah

Last night’s win was the final home game for BU head coach Jack Parker, who is retiring after 40 years behind the BU bench.

Parker addressed the crowd following the game after a video montage aired on Agganis Arenas’ scoreboard.

After the game, he had kind words for a Merrimack program he has watched grow since Dennehy took the job in 2005.

“Mark has done a fabulous job,” he said. “Credit to (Merrimack) for battling the way they did. Someone told me our record against them in this building (17-1-3) but I’ll tell you what, they all felt like this one here. I really like their team. They’re a hell of a college hockey team.”
