The Lineup: New Hampshire at Northeastern

BOSTON -- Good evening from Northeastern University's historic Matthews Arena where the Huskies (7-12-3, 4-10-3) look to shake off a lost Hockey East weekend against UMass-Lowell with their final contest of the season against the No. 3 New Hampshire Wildcats (15-6-2, 10-5-1).

UNH is coming off a 6-2 win against Merrimack last Saturday, but has won just once in the last three games and three times in six and will also have to deal with the return of NU sophomore Ludwig Karlsson to the top line.

The meeting is the first between the teams since a scoreless bout on Oct. 27, 2012 when NU senior Bryan Mountain and UNH sophomore Casey DeSmith combined to stop all 78 shots on goal in the contest. Northeastern has held the Wildcats scoreless in their last two trips to Boston, thanks to a 4-0 victory on Oct. 14, 2011 - the first win of Jim Madigan's head coaching career.

Tonight's game marks the last before the Huskies embark on the 61st Annual Beanpot Tournament on Monday night at TD Garden. In games directly before the Beanpot, Northeastern is 24-33-3 all-time. Current senior captain Vinny Saponari scored the overtime game winning to beat UMass in last season's contest on Feb. 3, 2012.

Here are the lineups:
