College Hockey: Warriors take three of four points from BU

(Continued)

“Obviously it’s nice to get back on the ice,” Ellis said. “I know for me, I’ve missed enough games so I don’t want (the break), I’d rather keep playing, but it’s also a chance for us to regroup and focus on the second half of the year.”

Christie, Ellis and Collins are all fixtures on Merrimack’s power play, which at times early in the season has been a source of struggles.

“We’re still trying to find our way (on the power play),” said Ellis. “I think the three of us out there are just trying to get comfortable. Now we’ll have the whole break to really work on stuff like that with us all back out there.”

He added, “Brian played great this weekend and you obviously saw what Mike being back out there does for us. The way he played (Friday) he really took over that game.”
