Trick and Treat
Oct. 30, 2010
Merrimack 4, BC 2
This was the game that made most Warrior fans believe.
The defending national champions rolled into Lawler Arena fresh off a win over the Warriors the night before.
But this night belonged to Merrimack, who pulled out to a 3-1 lead and held on for a 4-2 win.
The win was the first of many of Hockey East's elite, including another over the Eagles and wins over BU, UNH, Maine and Vermont, all inside Lawler.
It was also the first of 10 Merrimack sellouts this season.

Merrimack 4, UMass Lowell 3
The Warriors trailed 3-2 with just over two minutes to play before Jesse Todd put Merrimack on his back. The junior winger potted two goals in the final minutes to lift the Warriors to a 4-3 win, including the game winner coming with just 37 seconds to play in regulation. It was also a hat trick for Todd, who leads the Warriors with 17 goals through the Maine series.

Merrimack 2, Army 1 (OT)
A non-conference game against Army might not sound like much, but the Warriors trailed 1-0 entering the third and came from behind to beat the Black Knights.
It also served as a spark plug, sending the Warriors on a six-game winning streak and a stretch of games where they won 14 of 15.
No End in Sight

Merrimack 4, Northeastern 3 (OT)
In the midst of an eight-game winning streak, Merrimack trailed 2-0 and 3-2 before two goals by Joe Cucci, including the overtime winner.
Cucci scored the tying goal with 9:36 left and then the winner to mark the second time this season that Merrimack came from behind to win late in the game with the same player scoring both the tying and winning goals.
