Game Day: BU-UMass and a 40 year anniversary

Terriers take on UMass in the ever-dangerous game between Beanpot outings. Tonight's game will be punctuated by ceremonies marking the 40th anniversary of BU’s second NCAA Championship team in 1971-72. See details below.

UMass makes its second visit of the year to Agganis Arena on a four-game skid, following a four-game unbeaten streak that included a 4-0 shutout of BC. Both BU-UMass games back in October went to overtime, with a 2-2 tie the first night in Amherst and a 5-4 BU win the second night on Matt Nieto’s power play goal. TJ Syner and Mike Pereira lead the Minutemen with 11 goals each, while Conor Sheary and Daniel Hobbs each have nine.

Nieto (photo) and assistant captain Alex Chiasson lead BU with 27 points each while captain Chris Connolly is just behind them at 26. Wade Megan, following his two-goal outing against Harvard, tops the Terriers with 14.

Looking Back at BU’s Repeat National Champions
Between the first and second periods, BU will honor the 1971-72 squad, which won the NCAA title in Boston Garden on March 18, 1972. The 1970-71 team, which won BU’s first national title, also will be recognized.


Eighteen players skated for both teams, including All-Americans John Danby, Bob Brown and Dan Brady, as well as tonight’s opposing head coach, Don Cahoon. The two championship seasons also were the final seasons of Head Coach Jack Kelley's BU coaching tenure
