BU loses to UMass 3-2
The #1 BU Terriers lost to the UMass Minutmen 3-2 last night in a let down game for BU. Kieran Millan was the best player on the ice for the Terriers but it was still not enough. The loss drops the Terriers to #2 in Pairwise rankings with Umass Lowell jumping up and taking over the #1 spot. They also remain tied for #2 in the Hockey East standings with Boston College(Newton University) as Lowell is in first with one more point and one game in hand which they will catch up with tonight when they host Maine at Tsongas Arena.
BU got goals from Chris Connolly to tie the game early 1-1 and got a late goal from Alex Chiasson to make it a one goal game after UMass had opened up the game with an empty net goal with less than a minute remaining. BU now sits at 17-9-1 overall and one conference win away from clinching a conference playoff berth. Here are some other scores from last night in the conference
Lowell 3 MC 0
BC 6 UVM 1
PC 4 Maine 3
UNH 3 NU 2
- The Terriers return to action Monday night in the 60th Beanpot final where everyone and their mother will be picking the Eagles because of their winning streak against UNH, NU, and UVM. Sounds like some quality opponents right there with a nice 28-49-6 combined record. Should be a great game Monday night against those diving girls from Newton.
