The Black Bears will be traveling to Hartford to face the No. 8 UCONN Huskies on Friday and Saturday.

Maine stands at 1-3-1 with a shootout win against the likes of No. 1 Denver, No. 3 Quinnipiac, and No. 15 Northeastern this season.

There’s something about this Huskies team though that really jumps off the page.

“Their compete level is the best I’ve seen on tape. They go and they hit you. They’re fast. They have good players. Their goaltending’s been good. We’re going to have to be mentally engaged from the drop of the puck or else we’re going to be deer in the headlights,” said Ben Barr, head coach.

The Connecticut series gives the Black Bears a chance to register their first regulation win in Hockey East after topping the Northeastern Huskies in a shootout.
