The Huskies won the previous meetings 3-0 and 1-0.
Mueller’s first-period goal and Maureen Murphy’s second-period goal staked Northeastern to a 2-0 lead but UMaine tied it on Morgan Sandler’s late second-period goal and Ali Beltz’s early third-period tally.
Mueller had two assists to go with her goal.
