Rob McGovern stopped 44 of 45 shots and the UMaine Black Bears finished a weekend sweep of UMass with a 2-1 win Saturday night at Alfond Arena.

The win gets McGovern's record back to 9-9-3.

The team improves to 4-10-2 in Hockey East and 10-13-2 overall.

Blaine Byron scored late in the first period and Rob Michel scored early in the second period. It turned out that was all McGovern needed.

The Bears play at Procidence next weekend.
