Recap: UMass Splits Against Maine, Wins Second Home Game Of Season

Splits tend to bring forth both positives and negatives for a hockey team and that’s exactly what happened for Massachusetts this weekend as they split the weekend non-conference series with the Maine Black Bears.  The positives for the weekend were that UMass got another win in a season that hasn’t seen a lot of them.  Friday’s game featured an impressive come from behind victory, something the team hasn’t been able to do a lot this season.  The win that night was just the second win of the season at the Mullins Center.  There were some excellent individual efforts this weekend, namely from Shane Walsh and Henry Dill.  And, due in large part to Dill, the Minutemen only allowed 5 goals total all weekend.
