This week has been a busy one for the Boston University men’s hockey team. After the Terriers took the top spot in one national poll and the second spot in another, BU earned a trip to the Beanpot finals with a 3-1 win over Harvard University.
But at 7 p.m. Friday night at Agganis Arena, the Terriers (17-8-1, 13-6-1 Hockey East) will have to set aside all Beanpot thoughts for a minute – or 60 – when they host the University of Massachusetts for the teams’ final regular season meeting of the season.
“If you look at how hard they skate, how fast they are, how many talented players they have, they have some very good offensive forwards high in the league in scoring,” said BU coach Jack Parker. “They are if not the fastest then in the top three fastest teams in the league skating-ability wise.”
