ORONO — The University of Maine men’s hockey team didn’t waste much time welcoming the North Dakota Fighting Sioux to Alfond Arena Friday night.
Maine scored just 43 seconds into the game en route to a five-goal outburst in the opening period that carried the Black Bears to 7-3 win
over the nation’s second-ranked team in front of 5,216 fans.
Maine snapped a three-game winless streak and improved to 2-1-2. North Dakota fell to 3-1-1.
The teams will play again tonight at 7.
“We played Maine hockey tonight,” said Maine junior right wing Gustav Nyquist, who had a goal and two assists. “We got the puck down low, we worked hard, we moved our feet and we were tenacious.”
