From the drop of the puck, BU controlled this game with the exception of a small window in the third period.
With BU leading 5-1 in the third, UMass notched two goals in less than a minute to make an otherwise wildly non competitive game a bit more interesting. Dominic Trento scored a power play goal 6:09 into the period and Joe Widmar potted his first goal of the year at 7:03 to make it 5-3.
Well before UMass made a run at a comeback, BU amassed a sizable lead in the first period.
The Terriers scored on their first shot on goal when Jordan Greenway backhanded in a shot from the point by Brandon Hickey. The shot hit off the end-boards and found Greenway's stick and had nothing to shoot at but an empty net. The goal came just 57 seconds into the game.
Less than two minutes later, BU struck again on a wraparound Chase Phelps goal. Two minutes later, Phelps assisted Mike Moran's second goal of the year to make it 3-0.
Minuteman goalie Henry Dill was yanked after the Phelps goal. He allowed two goals on three shots. Nic Renyard came in and played the remainder of the game, making 27 saves.
UMass got on the board at 7:04 by Ray Pigozzi on the power play. Oskar Andrén scored his first collegiate goal in the final minute of the period to round out an eventful first frame in Amherst.
Danny O'Regan scored the lone goal of the second on the power play off a Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson pass.
Finally, Jordan Greenway put away any hope of a UMass comeback with his second goal of the game with 7:50 left to make it 6-3.
Sean Maguire made 24 saves.
