BOSTON - Sophomore left wing Denisa Krizova put her stick on each of the Northeastern women's hockey team's four goals Sunday afternoon against Providence as the Huskies shutout the Friars, 4-0, to stay undefeated in Hockey East play.
Brittany Bugalski earned her first career shutout, stopping all 12 shots that were sent her way. The freshman from Boynton Beach, Florida, made eight saves during the third period, keeping the Friars scoreless for a full 60 minutes in just her seventh career game.
Northeastern (6-1-1, 2-0-0 WHEA) outshot Providence (0-6-0, 0-2-0 WHEA) by identical margins of 12-2 during the first and second periods, racking up 34 shots by the time the third period came to a close.
Kendall Coyne scored twice for the Huskies, bumping up her season goal count and team lead to 12 lamp-lighters on the year. Junior defender Heather Mottau opened the game's scoring for Northeastern at 7:07 in the first period, scoring her third goal of the season.
Hayley Scamurra and Taytum Clairmont combined for 17 of the Huskies' 31 faceoff wins on Sunday. Scamurra also notched two assists, bringing her season total to five on the year. Maddie Hartman and Ainsley MacMillan collected their fifth and second assists of the season, respectively, while manning the blue line.
Northeastern will leave Matthews Arena and begin a three-game road trip on Friday, Oct. 30, with a 2 p.m. matinee at the newest WHEA member, Merrimack.
-Northeastern (7:07, first period): Ten seconds after Providence had killed its first penalty of the game, Heather Mottau put the Huskies ahead, 1-0, from just inside the left circle. Denisa Krizova and Hayley Scamurra assisted Mottau's third goal of the year.
-Northeastern (9:56, first period): Kendall Coyne extended Northeastern's lead to 2-0 halfway through the first period, sending a shot over Providence goalie Allie Morse's shoulder from along the left side of the net. Maddie Hartman had fed a puck to Krizova between the dots before Krizova looked left and found Coyne up the line for the one-timer.
-Northeastern (14:45, first period): Having gained possession of the puck in the Huskies' defensive zone, Jordan Krause passed it along the boards to Ainsley MacMillan, who delivered a long pass towards the center of the ice. Krizova gave the puck a re-direction in the middle of Northeastern's zone and Coyne polished the play off for the Huskies' third goal of the game.
-Northeastern (15:08, first period): Just 23 seconds after Coyne scored her 12th goal of the season, Krizova upped the Huskies' lead to 4-0. Coyne started the play on the right side of the Huskies' zone, passing a puck back to Scamurra near the blue line. Scamurra then found Krizova inside the left circle as Krizova completed a magical, four-point period.
