BURLINGTON, VT.&-Despite playing much better than it did Friday night, the No. 20 Boston University men’s hockey team left the University of Vermont with no points on the weekend following a 3-2 loss Sunday afternoon.
BURLINGTON, VT. &-&- The Boston University men’s hockey team completely controlled even-strength play for most of the first 40 minutes in Sunday’s 3-2 loss to the University of Vermont, but the Catamounts won the special-teams battle and were able to hang in the game because of it.
At last month’s Beanpot and select hockey games at Agganis Arena, the Boston University hockey family helped raise money for 15-year-old Matt Brown, a Norwood High School hockey player who broke his neck during a game in January.
Rest, relaxation and a bit of chicken noodle soup are what most of the No. 20 Boston University men’s hockey team could use this weekend.
They are dedicated to the game of hockey, making weekly trips off campus just to practice, and they compete regularly against nationally ranked rivals like Boston College, Northeastern University and the University of Connecticut. In fact, they often defeat high-powered club teams who receive funding from their schools for transportation, coaching and other costs.
