- UMD has dropped to third most penalty minutes per game in the nation. Maine is currently fourth.
- UMD certainly has the numbers for offense against the second to last offense of the Black Bears. UMD's problem is offensive consistency.
- The Bulldogs are playing Maine at the right time looking for a win to reach 0.500.
