More honors from Collins


It was a good week for Merrimack College junior hockey star Mike Collins.

This weekend, he helped Merrimack gain a split with No. 4 ranked University of New Hampshire, with two goals and an assist in Merrimack’s 3-2 win Friday night.

On Monday, Collins was named Hockey East co-Player of the Week and yesterday he was named Hockey East Player of the Month for January, amassing 11 points while leading Merrimack to a 4-2-1 record over that span.

Collins is tied for 11th in the country with 13 goals and 17 assists in 25 games. In Hockey East games, Collins is tops in the league with 25 points in 16 games.

Check out tomorrow’s Eagle-Tribune for a story on the talented Merrimack star.

Merrimack’s ‘golden’

opportunity on NESN

As Merrimack College makes its midseason push for postseason play in Hockey East and possibly a NCAA Div. 1 tournament berth, it will get a national television audience Friday when it hosts UMass Lowell at 7 p.m. on NESN.

Coverage of the game begins at 6:30 p.m. where the Warriors have one of the best home ice advantages the last three-plus seasons in Lawler Arena.

UMass Lowell will not be an easy foe. It is 10-0-1 over its last 11 games and is ranked ninth in two major polls.

Merrimack fans have been encouraged to wear gold for the occasion on NESN. All fans in attendance will receive a free “Fan Flag”, courtesy of TSR Hockey in Salem, N.H.

Super Bowl Sunday

matchup moved to 1 p.m.

The last three years, Central Catholic and St. John’s Prep boys basketball programs have been working their way toward a big “rivalry.”

Five of their last six meetings have come down to the final possession, with three of those games played before standing-room-only crowds.

Well, they do it again on Super Bowl Sunday in Danvers at 1 p.m., with both teams expected to have only one loss.
