UMaine hockey will face the current #2 team in the nation and defending national champion this weekend. The Union College Dutchmen come to the Alfond Arena for games Friday and Saturday.

While the Black Bears came back from Alaska without a win last weekend, Union scored two wins - over AIC and New Hampshire. The wins bumped the Dutchmen from fifth to second in the USCHO poll.
