STORRS, Conn. – The University of Connecticut women’s ice hockey team continues conference play on the road this weekend when it faces Merrimack on Saturday, Nov. 5 and New Hampshire on Sunday, Nov. 6.

The Huskies are looking for their first Hockey East win of the year after opening their league slate with back-to-back losses to Boston College. Junior goaltender Annie Belanger (Sherbrooke, Quebec) racked up a combined 75 saves in the home-and-home series with the Eagles.

2. Leah Lum – 6 points (4g, 2a)
    Briana Colangelo – 6 points (1g, 5a)

UConn was 2-0-1 against Merrimack last season and 3-2 against UNH. The Huskies and the Wildcats met in the 2015-16 Hockey East quarterfinals where UConn swept UNH 2-0 with home ice advantage, including a 4-3 triple overtime thriller in game two.
