Game Notes | Directions to Saturday's Game at Freitas
STORRS, Conn. - After winning its first Hockey East game of the season in dramatic fashion, the University of Connecticut women's ice hockey team looks to continue its overwhelming offense this weekend in a home-and-away series against Boston College. The Huskies host the first game at Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum on Saturday at 1 p.m. before taking on the Eagles in Chestnut Hill, Mass. on Sunday.
Cristin Allen (Pickering, Ont.) aided the offense with a career-high four assists at Maine, helping the Huskies score a program-best three shorthanded goals against the Black Bears. A trio of players were responsible for the goals, each scoring the first of their respective careers. Junior Jennifer Chaisson (Cumberland, Ont.), senior Michelle Binning (Oshawa, Ont.) and sophomore Monique Weber (Rogers, Minn.) scored in succession and Chaisson added a power-play mark for the 5-1 lead.
Freshmen Elisabeth Stathopulos (Toronto, Ont.) and Kelley Horan (Methuen, Mass.) each scored in the final minute of regular to give the game its 7-2 final. Sophomore Alexandra Garcia (Pointe-Claire, Que.) allowed just two Maine goals, making a career-high 29 saves for her third win of the season in the crease.
Boston College split its most recent Hockey East series against Vermont, dropping the final game 5-1, allowing the Catamounts to score three unanswered power play goals. The Eagles took the first game of the series with a 3-0 shutout win thanks to the saving efforts of freshman Corinne Boyles. She has seen the post playing time this season and boasts a 2.42 goals-against average with a .924 save percentage.
Following Saturday's 1 p.m. clash at Freitas, the Huskies head to Chestnut Hill for a noon face-off at Kelley Rink.
