Fresh off a quarterfinal win over Providence, the Eagles are set to take on No. 3 Massachusetts in the Hockey East Tournament semifinal Friday with a berth in the final on the line.
Despite putting up a great fight, the Eagles were defeated by UMass at home, extending their losing streak to four games.
Graham McPhee scored in both the first and second period for the Eagles, but Massachusetts responded with three goals in the second frame to earn a 4-2 victory and sweep BC.
The Eagles lost graduate transfer defenseman Kevin Lohan over the weekend, but battled for a defensive victory over Massachusetts at Kelley Rink.
