Mass.-Boston gets highest ranking

BOSTON -- After a wild first week of 2014 in which it earned five wins in eight days, Massachusetts-Boston (12-1-2) earned the highest ranking in school history, as it came in at No. 6 in the D3Hockey.com Top 15 Poll released on Monday afternoon.

Friday UMass-Boston scored two goals in the third period to snap a three-game losing streak against Norwich and Saturday UMB overcame a 4-1 second-period deficit by scoring five consecutive goals to knock off the Purple Knights.
