Robbins' recent surge just a piece of Maine's scoring depth

ORONO - A lot of players have scored for Maine men's hockey. As a matter of face, 19 players have at least one goal for Maine this season, that is called depth.

Week in and week out it seems as if one player catches fire out of no where that was Brendan Robbins this weekend.

The junior forward exploded for three goals in Maine's win over Merrimack on Friday and now leads the Black Bears in goals with 10. Robbins couldn't explain the reason for the sudden outburst as he hasn't changed anything in practice or game preparation ... ring-depth

Georgians are Leading the way for UMaine Men's Hockey Team

ORONO, MAINE (WABI) - There are two players on the Maine men’s hockey team from the same small town outside Atlanta.

Junior winger putting the finishing touches on becoming UMaine’s top scorer

...“He has always had a good shot but he didn’t necessarily have the feel for how to apply it and, over time, he has gotten better,” said UMaine head coach Red Gendron. “He has worked really hard to improve his game and he still plays with that same tenacity every time he suits up.”

Robbins said he has spent a lot of time working on his shot and finishing touch.

“I worked on improving my skills around the net … putting pucks on net and hitting my spots,” said Robbins. “This year it has kind of showed for me. I’ve got a couple more goals than I had last year and the season isn’t over. I just like contributing to the team and doing the best I can.” ... op-scorer/

Providence cashes in on overtime power play to edge UMaine men’s hockey team

...UMaine slipped to 15-11-4, 9-8-3 in conference play.

Coach Red Gendron’s Black Bears had killed off a 5-on-3 Providence power play late in regulation to help force overtime.

“It was a great game and our team played really well for the entire 60 minutes — one of the better games we’ve played this year,” Gendron said.

Gendron faulted neither Vesey for his effort on the play, nor the referee for making the call.

“We had more than our share of opportunities and it came down to a bad break. Nolan Vesey, he didn’t intend on hitting the goalie,” Gendron said. “It was just one of those bang-bang plays. He’s heading toward the net and the goalie bounced the puck off his shin pads and he’s trying to score, he runs into him by accident.” ... ckey-team/
