Men’s Hockey Prevails Over UMass, 2-1
Rob McGovern Makes 44 Stops in Victory

The Maine Men's Hockey Program looked to sweep at home and pick up two more crucial points in the Hockey East Playoff chase.

The first period saw both the Black Bears and the Minutemen battle for ice and control of the game. Senior Blaine Byron was able to strike first, burying his own rebound 15:14 into the first frame. Linemates Cam Brown and Brendan Robbins both picked up assists on the goal. Maine headed into 1st intermission with a 1-0 lead behind Rob McGovern's 15 saves.

The second period saw Maine strike again as sophomore Rob Michel rifled a shot from the top of the right circle, off Reynard's glove and into the back of the net. Cam Brown would pick up his second assist of the night, and Blaine Byron picked up the secondary on the play. At the 10:49 mark of the period, Jake Horton from UMass was the beneficiary of a tough bounce for the Black Bears. Leaving the box from his penalty, the puck found its way to Horton's stick and beat McGovern high to the short side, cutting the Black Bear lead to one. McGovern made 34 saves through 2 periods while UMass's Nic Reynard combined for 16.

The 3rd period was dead -locked, and Rob McGovern remained a wall for the Black Bears. He added 10 saves in the third period, blanking UMass in the frame, and secured the one goal victory for the Black Bears.

Maine now looks to Hockey East opponent Providence College as the Black Bears hit the road for another Hockey East series. Maine returns to their home away from home on February 10 at Cross Insurance Arena, as they take on Notre Dame before finishing the series back at Alfond Arena the following Day. Tickets are still available at goblackbears.com and by calling 207-581-BEAR.

Important stretch ahead for UMaine hockey

ORONO - This past weekend, UMaine hockey finally got the results it has been searching for throughout the Hockey East season.

The Black Bears completed a weekend sweep in the home series against UMass, clawing themselves out of last place for the first time in nearly the entirety of conference play. After winning just one game in their first nine Hockey East matchups, the Black Bears have now won three of their last five, an encouraging sign for the weeks to come.

Junior makes mark as shot-blocker for UMaine men’s hockey team

Mark Hamilton doesn’t often get his name on the scoresheet.

But the University of Maine’s junior defenseman has been doing an impressive job keeping the opposition off the scoresheet.

One of the reasons is he leads the country in blocked shots per game at 2.83. He is second in total blocks with 68.

... McGovern wound up with 33 saves including 27 over the first two periods as Providence outshot UMaine 28-17 and carried the play.

But UMaine had a 14-8 shot advantage in the third period as the Black Bears had the better of the play and more chances.

“We kept fighting. I was pretty proud of how we came after them in the third period,” said UMaine coach Red Gendron. “We had a ton of chances. We didn’t manage the puck as well as we needed to in the first two periods. We didn’t attack them when they had the puck, and we didn’t get the puck deep. But we executed in the third period, and we made it hard on them.”

...Despite the loss, Maine Coach Red Gendron refused to dwell on the negatives.

“All I want to talk about is the positives – about how hard we played down 1-0 going into the third,” Gendron said. “We didn’t win the game. But the game is 60 minutes long so we’re not going to focus on one mistake or anything like that.

“We played good hockey all night, but the other team is pretty good, too. They had the better of it for portions of the first and second periods, but we came out down 1-0 and kept fighting. It was a positive. We’re not happy we didn’t win the game. Efforts like that are what we need to be successful.”

Gendron also brushed off Maine’s lack of success against Providence.
