STORRS, Conn. – After snapping a five-game losing skid, the UConn women’s ice hockey team begins its four-game road stretch at Boston College on Friday, Feb. 3 and will follow that up at Providence on Sunday, Feb. 5.

The Huskies snapped their five-game loss streak after splitting the series with Vermont this past weekend. After the Catamounts claimed a 4-2 victory in game one Friday, two goals from junior Leah Lum (Richmond, B.C.) lifted the Huskies to victory on Saturday, 2-1.

Lum was named the Warrior Hockey East Player of the Week after she earned three out of UConn’s four goals in the series against Vermont. She currently leads the team in goals (17) and points (25) and has tallied at least one point in the last four consecutive contests.

UCONN LEADERS

2. Briana Colangelo – 20 points (7g, 13a)
3. Theresa Knutson – 17 points (8g, 9a)

Junior goaltender Annie Belanger (Sherbrooke, Quebec) finished with a combined 60 saves against the Catamounts, including a 38 save performance in Saturday’s 2-1 victory.
