Boston University may have been the No. 1 team in the nation this past week, but that will come to an end when the polls are released Monday.
Merrimack College completed a two-step sweep of the top-ranked Terriers with a 4-1 victory at BU's Agganis Arena on Friday night. Michael Babcock scored two goals in the third period, one shorthanded, to break open a 2-1 game, while Collin Delia made 37 saves.
The Warriors had originally posted a 3-1 victory over BU at Merrimack's Lawler Arena on Tuesday, as Logan Coomes tallied the game-winning goal on a second-period power play, while Delia made 30 stops. Merrimack scored four of its seven goals in the series with a man advantage.
BU is now 16-7-2 overall and 9-4-2 in Hockey East, where it resides in second place behind Green Line rival Boston College. Merrimack improved to 10-13-3 overall, and stands ninth in Hockey East with a 4-7-3 mark.
