By Nick O'Malley

October 19, 2010

The 2009-10 Massachusetts hockey team was a unit with an identity.          Offensively, UMass was at its best when on the power play and feeding the puck to James Marcou and Casey Wellman. Those two elite scorers were the focal point of the Minutemen offense as well as opposing defenses. It...
