ORONO – Maine women’s hockey has had one of the best seasons in program history, but if it wants to prolong it the Black Bears will have to beat Boston University in the Hockey East Quarterfinals.
The good news? Maine is home.
The Black Bears have dominated the Terriers this season as they have outscored them 11-5 en route to a 3-0.
While Maine has enjoyed a tremendous turnaround BU has had a lackluster regular season. While the Black Bears have the home-ice advantage, the Terriers have the edge in postseason experience.
Maine is aware of the challenge BU presents in the postseason, for the blue and white, they’re excited and focused for Friday night.
“For me this will be the first time but I think for the team it will be exciting because we finished like really in a high spot and I think it’s the first time in history,” forward Daria Tereshkina said.
“We should just play our game and we have to be prepared mentally I think and we are,” forward Tereza Vanisova said.
