UMD Game Will Air on Fox Sports North

For those who haven't heard, UMD's game Saturday in Worcester against Maine will air on Fox Sports North's Plus channel.

Game time is at 6:30pm, and it will air following the conclusion of the Minnesota-Boston University game in the West Regional, which starts at 4pm. The full broadcast will air live on, regardless of when FSN Plus is able to join the game.

You can find out where you can see the game on your TV set here.

UMD doesn't report any injuries or anything like that. Maine star Spencer Abbott -- a Hobey Baker finalist -- is not practicing because of a head injury, and multiple reports indicate that the Black Bears are "preparing as if he won't be available," or something along those lines.

I don't doubt that Abbott is injured, and I certainly hope it's not serious, but I'd bet UMD is preparing as if Abbott will be available. If he's not, Maine still has some hella dangerous players like Brian Flynn and Joey Diamond up front, guys who are certainly capable of making things difficult on a UMD defense that -- in my view -- struggled a bit at times against Denver on Friday.

I'll be on Maine Sports Network at around 10:40 Wednesday morning (Central time) to talk about the game. You can stream it here.
