UNH Defeated by #11 NU; Wildcats to Play at Maine

URHAM, N.H. – Cayden Primeau held the Wildcats scoreless with 34 saves as the University of New Hampshire men's hockey team fell to #11 Northeastern Huskies, 4-0, on Senior Night in the last regular season game for both teams on Saturday in Durham.

The Wildcats will return to action on March 2-4 when they play at Maine next weekend in a best two-out-of-three opening-round series of the Hockey East Tournament. The last time these two teams met in the Hockey East Tournament was a 3-1 UNH win in the 2002 championship game on March 16. ... eriod.aspx

On to Orono: 'Cats Eye Playoff Matchup vs. Maine

DURHAM, N.H. – This is fitting.

What better place for University of New Hampshire men's hockey coach Dick Umile and his team to start his final run in the Hockey East tournament than the not-so-friendly confines of Alfond Arena on the campus of the University of Maine in Orono?

The Wildcats and their bitter rivals will do battle at Alfond in a best-of-three, first-round series beginning Friday night.

Umile, who is retiring at the end of the season, coached his final game at the Whittemore Center on Saturday night, a 4-0 loss to Northeastern.

The Wildcats were back in the locker room discussing the game when Colin Shank, the assistant director of hockey operations, delivered the good news: UNH and Maine were matched up in the first round.

"I don't know how to explain the feeling," said senior defenseman and captain Dylan Chanter. "But when you hear that: 'We're playing Maine.' You're almost ready to go again. You can almost go out there and play another game. You've got the adrenalin rushing right away."

So you like the matchup?

"Absolutely," Chanter said. "In my mind, it doesn't get much better than that."

The Wildcats and Black Bears played three overtime games this season. Two ended in ties and Maine won the other.

This weekend's results left Maine at No. 6 in the standings and UNH at No. 11 and paired the two teams against each other.

"It's a new season now," Chanter said. "We played Maine really hard and we played in games against Maine that we could have won and we know that. Three overtime games. It's been a great matchup and we expect that going into this weekend. We're ready for it."

UNH played a pair of games at the Alfond in mid-January. The teams tied 2-2 on Friday, Jan. 19 and then turned around and tied again, 3-3, the next night.

Maine came from behind to beat the Wildcats, 4-3 in overtime, on Feb. 14 at the Whittemore Center.

The Wildcats will look to make the same first-round noise they made last season against Merrimack. They were the No. 10 seed and lost the first game at Merrimack 4-0 a year ago and bounced back with 4-0 and 5-2 wins to take the series. They then took No. 1 UMass Lowell to three games in the quarterfinals before falling.

Some of UNH's most memorable postseason games through the years have been against the Black Bears.

The teams, though, have not met in the Hockey East tournament in 16 years. They last played in the league tournament in the 2002 championship game. UNH won that one, 3-1.

They played their most recent best-of-three series in 1998 and Maine prevailed.

Now it's on to Orono and another best-of-three series. One team will advance to the Hockey East quarterfinals, the other will be done for the season.

"We've got Maine coming up," Chanter said. "Those will be easy games to get up for. We're really looking forward to that. It's going to be a heckuva battle up there and we know that and we're expecting that. It's all about preparing for Maine this week."

Umile liked the way his team bounced back Saturday from a tough outing and 8-0 loss at Northeastern on Friday night.

"No question," he said. "It was like night and day between what we did last night. I felt the guys competed and played with pride and we'll hopefully take that forward and we'll travel up to Maine."

Back to the Alfond.

"We like playing up there," Umile said. "It's a great atmosphere. We played two good games up there. Obviously, we've got to find ways to score goals. We won't win up there if we don't score goals, as we all know. ... maine.aspx
