Game Day: BU visits UMass; Parker, Olsson on IBUH

The Terriers, in the midst of their longest winning streak of the season, take on UMass in Amherst tonight in a 7 p.m. start at The Mullins Center. The game will air live on NESN.  BU has won four in a row and is 5-1-1 in 2018.

By contrast, the Minutemen, coming off a pair of losses to Maine, are 2-7-1 in the New Year, although one of the wins was a 3-0 blanking of Northeastern. The UMass offense is led by five freshmen: forwards Oliver Chau (20 points), Mitchell Chaffee (18) and John Leonard (17); and defensemen Mario Ferraro (17) and Cole Makar (13). Makar, a 2017 first-round pick by Colorado, was a teammate of Dante Fabbro on Canada’s gold-medal winning team in the 2018 World Junior Championships and leads UMass in plus/minus with +10.

BU will be without defenseman Chad Krys, who suffered an upper-body injury against Arizona State. Patrick Harper, who has missed the past six games, will be a game-time decision.
