The UConn men’s hockey team is coming off their best weekend of the season. The Huskies (5-6-6, 3-3-2 Hockey East) beat No. 7/9 UMass-Lowell 3-2 on their home ice on Friday, before playing them to a 2-2 tie at the XL Center Saturday afternoon.

“We’ve had a little success against (UMass-Lowell) and our kids started believing we can beat them,” UConn head coach Cavanaugh said. “I don’t know if I have a real answer for it, we match up pretty well against them. I’d like that to be the case with a lot more teams, like Geno [Auriemma] does, he does well against everybody.”
