College Hockey:

(Continued)

Just over five minutes into the third period, with the Warriors trailing 2-1, senior Mike Collins netted his first of the season to tie the score before Quinn Gould carried the puck into the offensive zone three minutes later and put home the game-winner.

Collins also added an empty-netter.

“A lot of good players have empty-net goals,” Merrimack head coach Mark Dennehy, “they’re on the ice then, you can trust them. I haven’t been worried about Mike. Happy to see Hampus get one, although he could have had four tonight. Mike’s been trusting his linemates more, they’re young, and then Gould with a great play on the rush getting it to his forehand for a shot, we’ll get secondary scoring, we just need to stick with it.”

Scary Moment

Lawler Rink fell silent with 3:16 left in the first period when first-year Army hockey operations manager Noah Strone collapsed on the bench after being struck with the puck near his arm or chest.

The game was stopped for several minutes as EMTs and trainers from Army and Merrimack rushed to the visitor’s bench at Lawler Rink as Strone slipped in and out of consciousness. He was taken from the bench on a stretcher to a nearby medical facility where he was alert and responsive, according to the sports information staff at Army.

“Strange play,” Riley said. “That puck came in hard and I thought it hit him in the arm, but we asked him and he said he was alright, then I heard a thump and he was down. He lost consciousness, came to, and lost it again. We’re all yelling and screaming at the refs and they didn’t know what we were talking about. It was pretty scary, his eyes kind of rolled up and I saw the look on our trainer’s face that I could tell it wasn’t good.”
