Coyne made the most of an abbreviated December slate with seven points (4g,3a) over three games. On Dec. 3 at New Hampshire, Coyne netted twice, including the game-tying goal in the third period, as the Huskies skated to a 3-3 draw in Durham. In the return match the next day, the U.S. international opened the scoring and added a late assist in a 5-1 rout of the Wildcats at Matthews Arena. On Dec. 7 against Boston University, she tallied an unassisted game-winner and later assisted strikes from senior tri-captain Stephanie Gavronsky and junior Brittany Esposito as Northeastern downed BU, 4-1.
