ORONO, Maine (WABI) – It looks like another weekend is upon us and another top 10 appears on the Maine calendar.
The Black Bears will travel to Hartford to face the No. 8 UCONN Huskies on Friday and Saturday.
Maine is 1-3-1 with shootout wins against No. 1 Denver, No. 3 Quinnipiac and No. 15 in the Northeast this season.
Although there is something about this Huskies team that really jumps off the page.
“Their level of competition is the best I’ve seen on tape. They go and beat you. They’re fast. They’ve got good players. Their goaltending was good. We’re going to have to be mentally engaged from the puck down or we’re going to be deer in the headlights,” Ben said Barr, head coach.
The Connecticut series gives the Black Bears a chance to record their first Hockey East regulation win after edging the Northeastern Huskies in a shootout.
