ORONO – It’s February 10, 2020. Maine men’s hockey is nationally ranked and is in great position to make the NCAA Tournament.
Black Bear fans, no need to pinch yourselves because this is indeed reality.
Maine is ranked 17th in the USCHO poll and enters the week No. 13 in the pairwise rankings, the top 16 teams qualify for the NCAA Tournament.
The Black Bears are coming off another solid weekend beating Northeastern 4-2 at home. It’s starting to feel like the good ol’ days at The Alfond, a place the Black Bears haven’t lost all year.
Maine is excited to continue climbing the standings down the final stretch.
“It’s incredibly tight I haven’t been a part of it yet with my time here so it’s exciting every game is quite literally a playoff game from here on out and we just raise our intensity that much more and play together. It’s fun at the end of the day,” forward, Tim Doherty, said.
The blue and white are back in action this weekend at home against UConn.
