DURHAM, N.H. - Hannah Armstrong (Keswick, Ontario), a senior on the University of New Hampshire women's ice hockey team, recorded an assist on UNH's Senior Day game vs. Northeastern University, but the Huskies skated to a 5-1 victory Saturday afternoon at the Whittemore Center.

UNH, which entered the game with a three-game unbeaten streak (1-0-2), is now 9-20-3 overall and 6-12-2 in Hockey East. NU, which secured the third seed of the upcoming league tourney, is now 11-15-5, 10-8-2.

New Hampshire and Northeastern conclude the regular season Feb. 22 (3 p.m.) at NU's Matthuews Arena.

UNH goaltender Ashley Wilkes (North Pole, Alaska) was credited with 19 saves while NU counterpart Chloe Desjardins recorded double-digit saves all three periods (11-12-10) for a total of 33.

New Hampshire's goal was scored by Cassandra Vilgrain (Calgary, Alberta). The Huskies were led offensively by Kendall Coyne (three assists) and Denisa Krizova (two goals). McKenna Brand, Lauren Kelly and Chelsiea Goll scored the other goals.

Northeastern got on the board first at 8:21 of the first period when Brand scored her eighth goal of the season. Brand initially sent a backhanded shot wide of the net that was picked up by Coyne. Coyne sent a pass into the slot from along the boards to Brand who one-timed her shot into the net.

Coyne started the next scoring sequence for the Huskies as she sent a pass along the boards behind the UNH net to Taytum Clairmont. Clairmont swung a pass to the point for Colleen Murphy, who sent a shot in on net. Wilkes made the initial save, but Krizova found the rebound and put it in with just 21 seconds remaining in the opening stanza.

At the end of the first period, NU held a 2-0 lead. The Wildcats held an 11-10 shot advantage in the frame.

The Huskies took a 3-0 lead at 4:41 of the second period when Krizova tallied her second goal of the game. Coyne skated into the UNH zone on the left side and played a cross ice pass to Krizova to the left of Wilkes. Krizova wound up and found the back of the net with her one-time shot.

The Wildcats got on the board at 16:00 of the second stanza as Vilgrain scored her fourth goal of the season. Freshman blueliner Amy Schlagel (Blaine, Minn.) started the play as she picked up the puck in the UNH zone and dished a pass to classmate Amy Boucher (Edmonton, Alberta) in the neutral zone. Boucher skated in and fired a shot on net that Desjardins saved. Vilgrain, however, corralled the rebound and jammed it past Desjardins into the net. The play was reviewed by the officials, but the call stood.

New Hampshire remained offensively minded as senior blueliner Caroline Broderick (Marblehead, Mass.) ripped a slap shot from inside the left faceoff circle. The attempt went just wide of the net. In all, the 'Cats outshot the Huskies 13-7 in the second period. Through two periods, Desjardins had 23 saves while Wilkes had 14.

At 3:37 of the third period, the Huskies increased their lead to 4-1 on Kelly's goal. Heather Mottau gathered the puck in the neutral zone and dropped a pass off for Coyne. Coyne skated into the UNH zone in the far corner and back around to the top of the faceoff circle. She fired a pass to the slot, where Kelly fired a wrist shot to the top corner of the net.

With 6:12 remaining in the third, Northeastern took a 5-1 lead with a one-time goal by Goldberg. Hayley Masters grabbed the puck in the Northeastern zone off a faceoff and skated into the UNH zone before finding Goldberg in the slot, and she fired a shot to the top corner of the net.

UNH's senior class of Armstrong, Broderick, Brenna Boulanger (Dover, N.H.), Kayla Mork (Victoria, Minn.), Jess Ryan (Cloquet, Minn.) and Marie-Eve Jean (Gatineau, Quebec) were honored prior to opening faceoff.
