Terriers return to Hockey East action tomorrow with a visit to Amherst to take on the UMass Minutemen in a game that will air on NESN. The Boston Hockey Blog reports that injured sophomore defenseman Chad Krys has been ruled out of the game and that classmate Patrick Harper will be a game-time decision, according to Coach David Quinn. Krys suffered an upper-body injury last weekend against Arizona State, while Harper has missed the past six games due to illness.
