Women’s hockey loses Hockey East title game to BC

The Boston University women’s hockey team and Hockey East championship trophies have become synonymous over the years, but 2016’s version wasn’t meant to be.

BU men’s hockey sweeps UMass to advance to Hockey East quarterfinal

The first four times the No. 9 Boston University men’s hockey team took the lead against the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the second game of the teams’ first-round Hockey East Tournament matchup, it gave a goal back. Even though UMass (8-24-4) never led during the game, it managed to hang around, bugging the Terriers (21-10-5) — much like it […]

No. 9 men’s hockey outlasts UMass, wins Hockey East playoff opener in overtime

Having beaten the University of Massachusetts with 13 combined goals in its two previous games, there might have been an expectation coming into Friday night’s Hockey East playoff opener that the No. 9 Boston University men’s hockey team would steamroll over the Minutemen again. But head coach David Quinn knew better. With a young group of players, Quinn said he […]
