STORRS, Conn. – The University of Connecticut women’s ice hockey team kicks off conference play Friday, Oct. 28 in a home-and-home series with No. 5 Boston College, beginning at home for the Huskies at the Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum.

The Huskies, who are the only team in the league yet to face a WHEA opponent, are currently 4-2-1 overall this season after going 1-0-1 in a two-game home series against Penn State last week. After playing to a 0-0 tie with the Nittany Lions Friday, UConn battled back to claim a 4-2 win over Penn State on Saturday. UConn remains undefeated in the all-time series with PSU 3-0-1.

UCONN LEADERS
1. Theresa Knutson – 7 points (4g, 3a)
2. Briana Colangelo – 6 points (1g, 5a)
3. Leah Lum – 5 points (4g, 1a)

Junior Leah Lum (Richmond, B.C.) notched two of UConn’s four goals against PSU Saturday, which leaves her third on the team with five points so far this season. Junior goaltender Annie Belanger (Sherbooke, Quebec) and freshman net-minder Morgan Fisher (Vernon, Conn.) each earned a start in the series against Penn State. Belanger made 39 stops Friday to earn her first career shutout while Fisher had 29 saves Saturday to garner her second win of the season.  

SCOUTING THE EAGLES
Record: 4-2-2, 3-1-0 WHEA
The Series: UConn trails BC 14-26-7
Last Time Out: March 5, 2016 | North Andover, Mass. | BC wins, 4-2 

Boston College is 4-2-2 overall this season and has already played four Hockey East contests. The Eagles are also coming off a 1-0-1 series after playing a home-and home with No. 3 Quinnipiac that started with a 0-0 tie on Oct. 21 followed by a 4-1 victory over the Bobcats the next day.

BOSTON COLLEGE LEADERS
1. Caitrin Lonergan – 9 points (5g, 4a)
2. Megan Keller – 7 points (1g, 6a)
3. Grace Bizal – 6 points (1g, 5a)

Of the four league games BC has played, three have been against Maine. The Eagles, who are 2-1 against the Black Bears this year, claimed both decisions at home at the Conte Forum, but recorded their second loss of the season on the road at Maine the following weekend. BC’s third conference victory was on the road versus New Hampshire.

The Huskies were 0-4 against the Eagles in the 2015-16 season. After suffering back-to-back 4-0 losses in October of 2015, UConn actually led Boston College 2-1 when the two met in February, but ultimately fell short 5-4. Their last time out, the Eagles knocked the Huskies out in the Hockey East semifinals on March 5, 2016, claiming a 4-2 victory at Lawler Rink on the Merrimack campus.  

UP NEXT…

The Huskies will face two different Hockey East opponents on the road beginning at Merrimack on Saturday, Nov. 5 followed by New Hampshire on Sunday, Nov. 6.
