Minnesota, Boston University To Meet For 26th Time

| No TrackBacks
Saturday's NCAA tournament game will be the 26th all-time meeting between Minnesota and Boston University. The two hockey powerhouses have each won five NCAA titles and begin their quest for a sixth at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

The Terriers lead the all-time series 12-11-2 against the Gophers, but Minnesota owns a 4-3 advantage in NCAA tournament play. The schools have not met since they split a regular-season series in Boston in 2005.

The teams also met in the 1996 U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame game, which was an exhibition at the time. The Terriers won that game 4-3.
