AROUND HOCKEY EAST: Warrior Hockey East Player of the Month Kendall Coyne (Palos Heights, Ill.) recorded the 10th hat trick of her career en route to a six point (3g, 3a) weekend in two victories over Merrimack. Coyne now sits within striking distance of several all-time Hockey East career scoring records. She currently has 69 goals and 58 assists for 127 points in Hockey East play, putting her just three goals, 16 assists and seven points away from breaking the current marks held by Jenn Wakefield (71 career goals), Sam Faber (73 career assists) and Kelli Stack (133 career points). NU goaltender Brittany Bugalski (Boynton Beach, Fla.) extended her win streak to eight games and posted her second shutout of the season on Saturday ... No. 2 Boston College picked up three more victories, including an overtime win against Boston University.

The Boston University Terriers are the only team to force the undefeated Eagles to overtime and the only team to score a power-play goal against the Eagles.

UConn played No.5/4 Clarkson tightly, but were edged out by the Golden Knights in a two-game set. Netminder Elaine Chuli (Waterford, Ont.) denied 95 of 101 shots in two games. Chuli is third among Hockey East goalies with a .944 save percentage ... Maine senior forward Audra Richards (Maplewood, Minn.) posted five points (4g,1a) in three games, including the game-winning goal at Dartmouth ...
