College Hockey: UNH falls to Maine, 1-0, in regular-season finale

The University of New Hampshire closed the Hockey East regular season with a 1-0 loss at the University of Maine in Orono on Saturday afternoon.

The loss dropped the Wildcats to 11-14-2 for 24 points. UNH (14-17-3 overall) sat in sixth place heading into Saturday's night games.

A Providence (10-13-3, 23 points) win over UMass-Lowell Saturday night would push the Friars into sixth and UNH down to seventh, the lowest spot UNH could finish in.

The Black Bears improved to 15-10-2 for 32 points (20-11-3 overall) and locked up the No. 4 seed and home ice for the first round. Maine will host No. 5 Merrimack next weekend.

Maine scored the only goal of the game at 10:13 of the first period. Londonderry's Brice O'Connor scored his second of the season, firing a shot from the blue line on the right side that was tipped a UNH defender and flipped over Casey DeSmith (28 saves) and into the net.

Black Bears goalie Dan Sullivan made 32 saves to pick up his second shutout of the year.
