BOSTON - Senior Denisa Krizova and junior Kasidy Anderson each scored twice to lead the No. 7/7 Northeastern women's hockey team (5-3-1, 3-0-0 WHEA) to its third straight win with a 4-1 victory over New Hampshire (4-1-1, 2-1-1 WHEA) on Wednesday evening at Matthews Arena.
Freshman Skylar Fontaine notched her first collegiate multi-point effort with a pair of assists, while junior goaltender Brittany Bugalski kept the Wildcats' offense at bay with 32 saves.
The Northeastern power-play stayed hot with two goals on two chances and has now converted eight times in the last 12 opportunities (66.6 percent) over the last three games.
• The Huskies struck first at the 6:05 mark of the opening period courtesy of a spectacular play by senior McKenna Brand. The forward blocked a slap-shot in the defensive zone, then outraced a UNH defender to the loose puck, before feeding Denisa Krizova in the slot for a one-timer to make it 1-0 NU.
• Northeastern's power-play stayed hot with its seventh goal in the last 11 chances when Anderson doubled the advantage at 13:56 of the first period. After a Lauren Kelly point-shot was knocked down in the crease, Anderson found the loose disc and nudged it over the goal-line to up the score to 2-0.
• UNH grabbed a goal back with a power-play tally of its own early in the second stanza when Taylor Wenczkowski chipped a shot over Bugalski at the left of the net following a centering pass by Carlee Turner.
• The Huskies re-established their two-goal cushion at 12:17 of the second period. Freshman Skylar Fontaine flipped an aerial pass through the neutral zone to Anderson, who was stationed behind the UNH defense. Anderson corralled the puck and skated in alone, before sliding a shot inside the left post for her second goal of the evening.
• Northeastern tacked on another power-play marker 2:11 into the third period to round out the scoring. Fontaine tossed the puck to the right point to Krizova, who unloaded a hard shot, through traffic, into the upper left corner of the net.
