UConn Huskies 3-4-0 (1-3-0) Hockey East T-5th

Massachusetts Minutemen 4-2-1 (0-1-1) Hockey East T-9th

If Hockey East was really serious about cultivating a rivalry on the ice between the Massachusetts and UConn hockey programs this weekend’s series would be taking place in February or March.  But instead we have the Minutemen and Huskies meeting in the first week of November.  That doesn’t mean these games mean any less in the grand scheme of things though.  Both teams are coming off lopsided losses and are looking for a rebound.  UMass was hammered 7-0 by #3 Boston College on Tuesday, a game preceded by a 6-1 loss to #13 Yale, while UConn lost 8-2 to Notre Dame in a game played in Brooklyn over the weekend.
