Head coach Katie Crowley
"I thought for the most part our kids played well. I liked our first period and our third period. I thought the second was a little bit of a struggle again today. We'll try to fix that and keep working on that, but overall I thought we played well."
"I was happy that (Kristyn Capizzano) put a couple in today because she can. It's one of those things where once you get a couple, it'll snowball for you. She's playing with two players who are very good, as well, and I think she's going to get opportunities to score and I hope she continues to capitalize on them. But she's also going to be that first forechecker and create opportunities for them, as well."
"I thought (Katie Burt) was great toady, too. They had quite a few shots - 12 shots on their power player - so I thought she did a real nice job keeping pucks away from the front of her in the crease area after they took shots and not giving them a second chance and a second opportunity."
HOW IT HAPPENED
- 1st, 2:43 // 1-0 BC: Kenzie Kent converted on the power play for her first goal of the year. She took Alex Carpenter's pass from the edge of the faceoff circle and found space under UNH goaltender Vilma Vaattorvaara. Haley Skarupa also had an assist on the play.
- 1st, 7:27 // 2-0 BC: Kristyn Capizzano potted her goal after Toni Ann Miano's diagonal pass deflected to open in front of the goal. Haley Skarupa also drew an assist on the play
- 2nd, 6:34 // 3-0 BC: Kaliya Johnson scooped the puck out to Skarupa behind the net and the forward skated all the way into the UNH zone, where she fed Anastos screaming in from the point for the wrist shot that beat Vaattovaara.
- 2nd, 18:50 // 4-0 BC: Capizzano converted again, this time taking a pass from Alex Carpenter as she was coming off for a shift change and blazed down the right wing, cut inside and beat Vaattovaara on the second attempt while on the ground
- 3rd, 3:41 // 5-0 BC: Meghan Grieves scored off a give-and-go with Tori Sullivan, after Andie Anastos worked the puck into the zone. Grieves' shot beat Hilary Cashin, who replaced Vaattovaara at the start of the third period.
- 3rd, 4:55 // 6-0 BC: Kent struck for her second goal when she took a pass from Carpenter and banked it in past Cashin at the far post. Johnson cycled the puck down to Carpenter, who spun out to create space and find Kent.
