After an opening weekend that saw Maine get blown out 7-0 by Providence, it was easy to assume this would be a long winter in Orono.
However, junior left wing Eduards Tralmaks and his fellow upperclassmen had other ideas. The turnaround started with two lopsided victories over Alaska-Anchorage. That sweep of the Seawolves served as a building block and confidence booster.
“It was a weird start because we played an actual game before an exhibition game. We have a lot of new guys who didn’t know the systems,” said Tralmaks.
“After that weekend, we came together and set out to do big things. It starts with the senior and junior leaders. We started scoring against Alaska-Anchorage and that’s how we’ve gotten more confident,” continued Tralmaks, who scored three of his team-leading seven goals against UAA.
