Bill, that's sap and you probably haven't hurt your trees at all. Maples like to "run" when the weather produces freezing nights and warm days. Here in New England, that usually is in March, maybe April, when we make our maple syrup.
Salmoneye knows what he's talking about. However, trees actually don't "heal". What they do is more accurately called "sealing" rather than "healing". If you want to find out more on the subject, I suggest you do an internet search for Dr. Alex Shigo who is probably the world's foremost authority on the subject of trees.
If you're interested in maples and maple syrup, I bet a search would turn up tons of possibilities.
