STORRS, Conn. –
The UConn women’s ice hockey team continues its road stretch with a two-game series at Maine, beginning Friday, Feb. 10 at Alfond Arena.

The Huskies improved to 13-13-4 overall after going 1-0-1 against a pair of Hockey East opponents last weekend. They are now 8-10-2 in Hockey East play.

In Friday’s contest with No. 6 Boston College, UConn led BC 3-0 after the first period, but the Eagles fought back and the game ended in a 4-4 draw. The Huskies followed that up with a 2-1 victory at Providence on Sunday. UConn led 2-0 after two at Schneider Arena, and, despite getting on the board in the third period, the Friars could not close the gap in the end.

UCONN LEADERS
1. Leah Lum – 28 points (18g, 10a)
2. Briana Colangelo – 24 points (8g, 16a)
3. Theresa Knutson – 17 points (8g, 9a)

Junior Leah Lum (Richmond, B.C.) and freshman Catherine Crawley (Washingtonville, N.Y.) both tallied three points over UConn’s two games last weekend, including multi-point performances against nationally-ranked BC. Junior goaltender Annie Belanger (Sherbrooke, Quebec) finished with a combined 62 saves against the Eagles and the Friars, including a 35 save performance against the No. 6 Eagles.

After suffering a 7-2 loss to the Warriors in game one, Maine came out and score three goals in the first period, two within 30 seconds of each other, which helped put them on top 5-3 in game two.
