It’s been a slow start to the season for the UMaine hockey team. 2-2-1 entering tonightâ€™s matchup with Providence. Last night the Black Bears squandered three separate one-goal leads against the Friars before grabbing an overtime winner.Captain Brian Flynn was the hero last night. His goal in OT lifted the Black Bears to a 5-4 win.No score midway through the first period. Kyle Beattie hits Adam Shemansky in stride. The junior goes top shelf and beats Alex Beaudry. Maine grabs a 1-0 lead on Shemansky’s second of the season.But the lead is short lived. Less than two minutes later. The play breaks down in front of Maineâ€™s net. Dan Sullivan sent sprawling. Damian Cross with a power play goal. Things all tied up at one.Same score in the opening minute of the second. Brian Flynn with a deft pass to Matt Mangene. The junior lights the lamp. Maine goes back in front 2-1. 23 ticks into the second.Both teams trading pressure but itâ€™s a one goal game until the final minute. Klas Leidermark grabs the empty netter. Black Bears win 3-1 and sweep the weekend series. A nice start for UMaine in Hockey East play. Six points in four games. But now come games at Boston College and New Hampshire.
