New Hampshire at Vermont - Two-Game Series (Fri., Sat. at Gutterson Fieldhouse)

- UNH won the first meeting of the season series back on Nov. 26 a 2-0 shutout at the Whittemore Center.

- WHEA Defensive Player of the Week Kayley Herman stopped 84 of 88 shots for a .955 save percentage for the Wildcats in a two-game series vs. No. 3 BU last weekend in the series split.

- Vermont's goaltender Roxanne Douville has posted back-to-back 1-0 shutout victories. She has a shutout streak spanning 120 minutes. In her last three games she has stopped 83 of 85 shots (.976%).

- The Catamounts own a 5-2-7 record when scoring the first goal of the game this season.


Northeastern vs. No. 3 Boston University - Two-Game Series (Fri. at BU, Sat. at NU)

- Boston University won the first meeting of the season on Dec. 7, a 3-0 shutout at Walter Brown Arena.
