BOSTON, Mass. - New Hampshire's (9-13-5, 4-9-4) Danny Tirone stopped 40 shots as the No. 11/9 Northeastern men's hockey team (15-7-3, 11-5-3) outshot the Wildcats 41-19 in a 1-1 draw on Friday night at Matthews Arena.

The Huskies are now one point out of first place in the Hockey East standings behind Boston College, while four points now separate the No. 1-4 teams in the conference standings.

UNH jumped out to a 1-0 lead late in the first period on a power play strike from Max Gildon off a feed from Benton Maass during an opening frame that saw NU outshoot the Wildcats 14-6.

Captain Nolan Stevens brought the crowd to its feet with a highlight reel goal in the opening minute of the second period taking a pass from Dylan Sikura entering the attacking zone, dancing around a defenseman before ripping a shot five-hole for his 50th career goal and 17th of the season.

The score would remain that way as the goaltenders took over from there as Primeau stopped the final 14 shots he faced, including eight in the third period, while Tirone stood on his head with 26 saves the rest of the way, including four in the extra five minutes, to preserve the tie.

The Huskies will be back in action on Monday for the 66th Beanpot as Northeastern battles No. 16 Boston College at 5 p.m. from TD Garden. The game will be televised live on NESN and TSN2.
