Good they pulled it out because it would have been disappointing to settle for a tie after having a 3-0 lead.

How bad was attendance tonight? Box score says only 3378. Maine really needs to finish the sweep tomorrow night, not going to be easy getting points in Hockey East this year.

I guess that they didn't lower ticket prices enough.

Appreciate the Maine only goals recap :)

So happy they managed to fail at giving that one away last night. ;)

To say the least. It looks like they have hardly sold any single game tickets. I can't really blame people, especially when you can basically save $100 a game by watching from the comfort of your own home.

It's really sad that Maine is one of the worst drawing teams in Hockey East now.........too many years of Timmay Time hockey combined with increased ticket prices. This program was taken for granted for too many years by the administration.......horrible mis-management of their cash cow.

Defense is weak to say the least,UMass Forwards blew by Maine's D many times...Goaltending is still iffy,Offense is getting there with more imput on pushing the puck up ice and towards the net,still need bodys in front of the goal...Hayes was there for the most part...up & down play hurt team last night,had UMass on the ropes @ 3-0 and 5-3,and let them back in to the game. O.T. rush on goal(4 on 2)was good to see,played to win.

I thought we were supposed to get any game that was broadcast in the Bangor area down here on WPME or WPXT.

Yeah, there have been things that have happened beyond the school's control that they have failed to react to as well. The economy isn't anywhere close to as good as it was 10 or 15 years ago up there. Also, gas is roughly double what it was 10 years ago. These things along with the availability of tickets makes it a lot easier to not get season tickets and then as the season goes on not buy many single game tickets. The school would do well to cut ticket prices in half for next year. I think a lot more of the southern ME/northern MA crowd would purchase them too.

And travel all the way up there ?? You gotta be kidding. Maybe if they were on fire, but not if they are playing mediocre hockey

This is what attendance should have been like during Whitehead's last 5 years.........it's too bad it took so long for attendance to bottom out because it gave Blake James the ammo that he needed to keep extending Whitehead.:(

I know for me it's easier and cheaper to travel south, UML, Mack even BU and BC. I always go to 1 or 2 games in Orono but for pure economics even if tix prices were cut in 1/2 I still wouldn't travel up to Orono more than twice a year.
