GAME RECAP

- BU opened the scoring halfway through the first period on a power play goal by Kaleigh Donnelly. An initial save was made by Ava Boutilier (Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island) but Donnelly poked the puck through the pads on the second effort to lead 1-0 at 10:08 into the first.

- Both teams were held scoreless in the second period as a total of five power plays occurred, two for BU and three for UNH.

- Two back to back plays New Hampshire had a stretch pass from the defensive zone to the blue line, where a winger was unmarked, but both shots were unable to find the back of the net.

- After no scoring in the third, came down to a final attempt for New Hampshire, with its own netminder pulled and a penalty kill expiring with just over 10 seconds to go; the 'Cats got the eventual 6-on-5 but the BU defense held strong to preserve the victory.


BEYOND THE BOX SCORE:

- The season series is not knotted up at 1-1-0. New Hampshire took the series opener this past October in a 4-2 victory at the Whittemore Center.

- New Hampshire is now 11-6-1 on the season when outshooting its opponent.

- It was only UNH's second loss this season when the game is decided by just one goal (5-2 this season.)

- The Wildcats have been shut out five times this season, and have shut out their opponents six times this season.
