AROUND HOCKEY EAST: The Maine Black Bears, after being taken down in Boston twice last weekend in league play, ended the Eagles' 52-game undefeated streak and 27-game winning streak against Hockey East opponents with a 3-2 win in Auburn, Maine. The streak was the longest such streak in league history, dating back to February 2014. Maine freshman forward Vendula Pribylova (Olomouc, Czech Republic) scored the decisive goal with 37 seconds remaining in the third period to give the Black Bears the victory. Freshman goalie Carly Jackson (Amherst, N.S.) was in net in the win, making 28 saves and letting up just two goals for a .911 save percentage ... The night prior, Maine dropped a 5-1 decision to Merrimack in a game that saw Warriors sophomore forward Paige Voight (St. Michael, Minn.) net two goals and add an assist, giving her a career high three points ... In the Eagles' first game of the weekend, Boston College defeated New Hampshire, 4-1, using four different goal scorers. Junior goaltender Katie Burt (Lynn, Mass.) played the full 60 minutes, making 24 saves and carrying a .904 save percentage ... To wrap up Hockey East play on the weekend, the Wildcats and Warriors had a Saturday tilt that saw senior forward Jonna Curtis (Elk River, Minn.) score four goals, a career high, including UNH's third goal and two empty-netters to seal the win ... Outside of the conference, Boston University traveled to take on Penn State. The two programs tied in the contest Friday, 3-3, but Saturday was all Terriers as senior forward Mary Parker (Milton, Mass.) went off for a five-point night. Parker netted a hat trick and added a pair of helpers to pace her squad ... In a series with RPI, UConn was shutout on Friday night, but rebounded for a 4-1 victory on Saturday. Junior defenseman Leah Luhm (Richmond, B.C.) registered back-to-back goals in the first period, the second of which proved to be the game-winner ... After fighting to a draw with Syracuse on Friday, 2-2, Northeastern's sophomore goalie Brittany Bugalski (Boynton Beach, Fla.) stood tall Saturday, earning her fifth career shutout and second of the season, with 27 saves to preserve a 1-0 win for the Huskies ... Vermont traveled to Robert Morris, for a twogame set, coming home with a 0-1-1 weekend. Junior defenseman Taylor Willard (Naperville, Ill.) scored with just under five minutes remaining to knot things up Saturday, while sophomore goalie Melissa Black (Newmarket, Ontario) and the Catamounts held on to salvage a tie in the overtime period.
