Preview ▲ Union Comes To Amherst To Close Out First Half Of Season

Union College Dutchmen 5-6-4 (2-5-1) ECAC T-10th


Massachusetts Minutemen 6-7-4 (2-4-4) Hockey East T-6th

I’m not sure I’d reach into the bag of clichés and call Friday’s game against Union a “must-win”, especially since it’s versus a non-conference opponent.  But, it would be a big positive for the Massachusetts hockey team to head into winter break with a win, especially since they’ve gone winless in their last 8.  A win would bring the Minutemen back to .500 for the season, a position not many people around college hockey thought they’d be at this point in the season.
