Preview ▲ UMass Heads West For Two Games Against The Irish

Massachusetts Minutemen 6-5-4 (2-2-4) Hockey East T-3rd


Notre Dame Fighting Irish 6-4-4 (3-1-2) Hockey East T-3rd

The Massachusetts hockey team will look to close out their better than expected first half of the 2015-16 league schedule on a positive note when they travel to South Bend, Indiana for a two game series against Notre Dame.  Of course the last time the Minutemen visited the Fighting Irish the trip was highlighted with a win in the longest game in college hockey history, but ended in disappointment when UMass ultimately dropped the first round Hockey East playoff series 2-1.  UMass will try to get back on track after going winless in their last six games.  On paper they’ll be facing a pretty evenly matched opponent to try to break out of their mini-slump.
