Getty Images

Maine hockey’s win over Boston University at Fenway Park helped move the Bears into the top-20 in this week’s USCHO national poll. The Black Bears are ranked #19 with an 11-7-2 record. There are eight teams from Hockey East in the top-20 in the nation so HE play will be no picnic in the second semester.

The the PairWise rankings, which factors in all stats the NCAA uses to seed teams for the playoffs, Maine is #18. Keep in mind 16 teams make the playoffs in March.
