Preview ▲ UMass Looks To Avenge Early Season Loss To #12 Yale

#12 Yale Bulldogs 6-4-2 (3-3-2) ECAC 6th


Massachusetts Minutemen 7-8-4 (2-4-4) Hockey East T-7th

It’s rare for teams to have a chance to avenge a loss to a non-conference team earlier in the season unless they happen to meet again in the NCAA tournament.  But that’s exactly the chance UMass has on Tuesday when they welcome the 12th ranked Yale Bulldogs to the Mullins Center.  The Minutemen were off to a 4-0-1 start to their season when they first met Yale back on Halloween in the championship game of the Capital City Classic in Trenton, NJ.  Yale would hand UMass their first loss of the season in a dominant 6-1 win and the Minutemen have won only three games since.
