Earlier this season, UMass and BU played two very closely contested games, both of which went to over time. BU battled back to tie the Minutemen 2-2 on Friday October 28th at the Mullins Center. The next night, back in Boston, BU overcame a 3-0 UMass lead and won 5-4 in overtime on a Matt Nieto power play goal.
