According to sources, although there are still a few details to work out, WABI in Bangor and WPME in Portland will be picking up ESPN3's feed of UMaine vs. defending national champion Minnesota-Duluth on Saturday night. The game will air at 7:30 p.m. from the DCU Center in Worcester.
This avoids a scenario Maine sports fans suffered in the fall, when UMaine's football team made the playoffs, but the games were relegated to ESPN3 only (the online only service ESPN offers).
The games will air in Bangor on The CW, WABI-DT2 (due to March Madness) and WPME (Portland).
In other news related to Maine's playoff apperance, Tim Whitehead told the PM Jab Monday afternoon that Maine is "Planning to play without Spencer Abbott" due to the head injury he suffered in Friday's win over BU.
