Hartford's Chanel Johnson had a great breakaway opportunity with 20 minutes left in regulation, but Maine keeper Claudia Dube-Trempe (Chambly, Quebec) made an outstanding save to keep the game scoreless.
Maine nearly won the game at the end of regulation, but a header by Charlene Achille (Longueuil, Quebec) went just over the cross bar.
The Hawks had another great chance in overtime when they came close to a breakaway, but Dube-Trempe outraced the attacker to the ball and kicked it away outside the penalty area.
Maine had a 12-11 edge in shot. Dube-Trempe made four saves in route to her sixth shutout of the season. She moves to 3-2-5 overall. Jurg made six saves and moves to 6-0-1 on the campaign.
