The Boston University mens ice hockey 9-5-1(7-4-1) team travels up to Orono, Maine today to finish up the first half of the season against the Maine Black Bears 6-6-2(5-5-1). BU comes in after a solid 2-1 win over UNH Thursday. That was without one of its top forwards in sophomore Matt Nieto. They look to finish the first half season strong against this team of underachieving hill billies. All the local fans are sure to be firing up the houses and driving their family rooms over to Alfond Arena. It will be interesting to see the atmosphere up there in Canada I mean Maine. Hopefully no BU fans making the trip hit any moose or women without teeth that tend to hang out in the roads up there. Maine is looking to finish off another mediocre first half and season under coach Tim Whitehead who is under scrutiny from the hicks at all times. The game will be broadcast live at 7:30 on CBS college sports network or channel 37 here at BU.
