- Harvard struck first at 6:10 of the first period on a power-play goal by Lexie Laing. Cashin stopped Briana Mastel's initial shot from the high slot but Laing corralled the rebound in front and shoveled the puck into the open right side of the net.

- New Hampshire tied the score, 1-1, at 13:55 of the second stanza on Curtis' wraparound goal. The senior captain collected the pass from Julia Fedeski (Algonquin Highlands, Ontario) in the right corner, skated behind the net to the left post and slipped a shot past Tissenbaum.

- The Crimson regained the lead, 2-1, with another power-play goal at 10:15 of the third period when Kat Hughes' shot from the top of the left circle trickled past Cashin across the goal line.

- UNH once again leveled the score, 2-2, at 16:19. Amy Schlagel (Blaine, Minn.) settled the Carlee Toews (Grand Prairie, Alberta) pass in the slot and snapped a wrister into the upper-right corner. Ali Praus (Long Lake, Minn.) was credited with the secondary assist.

- The Wildcats went on their fourth power play of the game at 3:19 of the extra session and Curtis scored 14 seconds later to end the game. Fedeski's initial backhander from the slot was stopped by Tissenbaum, who also denied the rebound shot by Carlee Turner (Scottsdale, Ariz.) in front. The puck then went to Curtis' stick and she lifted a shot from the top of the crease into the open cage at 3:33.


- It marked the first career multiple-assist game for Fedeski, and the two points matched her personal best. She also blocked four shots.

- Curtis leads the team in goals (nine), power-play goals (three) and game-winning goals (two), as well as points (15) and shots (57).


- UNH recorded a season high 45 shots. The previous high of 34 was in the second game of the season, Oct. 2 at eighth-ranked Colgate University.
