Massachusetts and Minnesota game preview
UMass, there are four NHL picks patrolling the blue line, including freshmen Scott Morrow (13 goals, 20 assists) and Ryan Ufko (5 goals, 24 assists). That doesn’t include Colin Felix, whose numbers don’t jump out at you, but he sets the tone for the Minutemen in many ways.
It’s time to shine on the big stage!

The Minutemen went a perfect 3-0 in the Hockey East tournament winning 4-2 over Providence in the quarterfinals at home before beating Mass-Lowell 3-1 in the semifinals at TD Garden. It took overtime to eliminate UConn in the title game, but Aaron Bohlinger scored just 3:06 into the extra session to give the Minutemen back-to-back Hockey East tournament titles.
UMass is the No. 3 seed from the Northeast region going into its third straight NCAA Tournament (fourth overall). The Minutemen, the No. 10 group in the nation, came to the last two Frozen Fours by dominating two games in their regionals. They haven’t lost a post-season game since the 2019 public title.
