#6 Maine with Shutout 1-0 Win Over #11 UMass Saturday Night
The Maine Black Bears bounced back from their 6-3 loss to Northeastern on Friday night with a 1-0 shutout win over #11 UMass on Saturday night on the road.

Maine's penalty kill, which allowed Northern 3 goals Friday night, was effective Saturday night, forcing UMass to go 0-3 on the power play.
Maine was only on the power play once Saturday night, going 0-1.
Maine outshot UMass 22-15.
