Forgive me if I overlooked a thread that covered this matchup already, but I didn't see one, and wanted to get some talk going.
So BC swept the season series 3-0 and outscored UMass 12-3, but the recent matchup saw UMass stifle a strong offense firing on all cylinders and force an OT, before Kreider finished the game with time dwindling.
BC and UMass both closed the regular season strong, winning their matchups against UNH and Maine, respectively (two strong opponents).
What can we expect? The 7-1 mismatch we saw at Amherst? The close matchup we saw recently? Something else?
Also, Coach York favors "riding the hot hand" when it comes to goalies, and that looked like it was leaning toward Milner of late, but Muse got the W in the last game at home over UNH. Are we still determining who IS the hot hand, or did Muse just take the net back?
[disclosure: I'm a BC fan, so these questions are BC-heavy, but I'm almost more eager to hear from the UMass contingent here]
