UMass-Lowell at Maine: Pregame Notes and Line Combinations

UMass-Lowell goaltender Connor Hellebuyck - Justin K. Aller

Maine looks to continue its winning ways on home ice at the Alfond Arena.

Orono, Maine -- Welcome inside Alfond Arena for Sunday afternoon's contest between the visitors from UMass-Lowell and the home standing University of Maine. The River Hawks have actually been better on the road with a record of 6-1-0 away from the Tsongas Center. Maine has a 6-1-0 record on home ice so something has to bend tonight.

A Maine win would give the Black Bears nine points in the league and lift Red Gendron's team into fourth place alone. If Norm Bazin's team comes out on top, UML will be tied for third with New Hampshire, but with games in hand on every team in Hockey East.
