Recap ▲ UMass Picks Up Two Points With Ties At New Hampshire, Merrimack

The Massachusetts hockey team hit the road this weekend and had to deal with two very different environments while taking on a couple league foes.  At New Hampshire on Friday the high-flying Minutemen were faced with having to play on the sizable playing surface of the Whittemore Center that was soft and slushy due to a power outage earlier in the day.  The next night they travelled to Merrimack’s Lawler Arena where they competed on one of college hockey’s smallest ice sheets against one of the best defensive teams in the country.  They were able to do well enough against both of the unique challenges to come away with two hard fought ties and gain two more valuable road points for the Hockey East standings.  Going back to last weekend’s game against Vermont, UMass has now gotten ties in each of their last three games, all on the road.
