MEN’S HOCKEY

New Hampshire 4, Maine 1

At Durham, N.H., a shorthanded goal by UNH proved pivotal Friday night as the Wildcats regained momentum on James van Riemsdyk’s second-period shorthander after Maine had scored just 1:42 earlier and UNH went on to post a vic-tory at the Whittemore Center. It was UNH’s fifth straight win over Maine at the Whittemore Center. UNH improved to 13-8-4 overall, 9-6-3 in Hockey East. Maine fell to 11-13-3 and 6-10-2, respectively. Maine is now 1-8-2 in its last 11 games, while UNH is 8-2-1. Danny Dries and Steve Moses staked UNH to a 2-0 lead with goals 3:32 apart within the game’s first 5:17. Matt Duffy’s power-play goal pulled Maine within 2-1 at the 3:25 mark of the second period, but van Riemsdyk answered. Mike Sislo made it 4-1 and all but sewed up the win with 3:56 remaining in the middle period. Jamie Fritsch started the play that led to van Riemsdyk’s crucial goal by winning a one-on-one battle with Maine’s Spencer Abbott in the defensive zone and then sending the puck up to Sislo. Sislo broke down the right wing and slid the puck across to van Riemsdyk, who was able to get his stick free from Maine defenseman Simon Danis-Pepin and direct the puck past Dave Wilson. Maine had a couple of power-play chances later in the period but were unable to capitalize. Maine lost leading scorer Gustav Nyquist to a neck injury earlier in the period. Sislo’s goal came seconds after Maine had a great opportunity to pull within 3-2 when Abbott fed an unattended Van Dyk in the low slot. But Van Dyk’s shot sailed over the net as it may have hit a UNH stick. Moments later, Maine defenseman Ryan Hegarty mishandled the puck at the blue line and Sislo poked it free and broke down the right wing in a two-on-one. Sislo snapped a wrist shot from the right circle beat Wilson over his glove into the short side corner. Dries opened the scoring by wheeling out of the corner to Wilson’s right and firing a wrist shot from the top of the left circle over Wilson’s glove. Moses made it 2-0 off a three-on-two as he wristed a shot from the top of the right circle over Wilson’s blocker into the far corner. Wilson was caught deep in his net. UNH had the game’s first 10 shots on goal. Duffy gave the Bears some life with a one-timer from the midpoint, his third career goal against UNH. That gave Maine a power-play goal in nine of its last 10 games, but that’s all the Bears could muster. The teams play again tonight in Manchester, N.H.
