Game Day: Frozen Fenway--BU vs. UMass

A day later than planned, the #5 Terriers take on Massachusetts in the first half of a Capital One Frozen Fenway doubleheader. For BU, it’s the first conference game since the 4-0 shutout of Vermont on Dec. 10. Puck drop at Fenway Park is set for 1:30 p.m. ET with NESN airing the game. Former BU All-American and MOP of the 2009 NCAA Championship game Colby Cohen joins the NESN studio crew.

This is BU’s third Frozen Fenway appearance. The Terriers topped BC, 3-2, in 2010 and fell to Maine, 7-3, in 2014.  Prior to those games, BU had last played outdoors in 1956, beating Holy Cross at MIT Rink.

The Terriers’ 5-4 overtime win against Union gave Coach David Quinn’s squad a 10-3-2 mark for the last 15 games. With the return of the seven players from the World Junior Championships, BU will have nearly everyone available with the exception of Shane Switzer who suffered a concussion against Union.

The Minuteman offense is led by sophomores Austin Plevy and Kurt Keats with 12 points each, and senior Steven Iacobellis with 11. Freshman Ryan Wichow has handled most of the netminding duties and has a 2.71 GAA. The Minutemen have dropped seven of their last eight games.
