East Division Finals, Game 3: Maine 4 @ Maryland 1 (Maine wins series, 3-0) – The Maine Nordiques became the first team to punch their ticket to the 2021 Robertson Cup Championship as they defeated Maryland 4-1 on Thursday night in Game 3, completing a series sweep of the Black Bears. The Nordiques were again led by their goaltender Tyriq Outen, who made 29 saves in the win, allowing just one goal for the third straight game against the Black Bears.
