CANTON, N.Y. - Goals by senior Kendall Coyne and sophomore Shelby Herrington helped the Northeastern women's hockey team (0-0-1) earn a 2-2 tie at St. Lawrence (0-0-1) in the 2015-16 season opener Saturday at Appleton Arena.
Freshman goaltender Brittany Bugalski turned in an excellent debut performance with 27 saves, including 11 in the third period, while Herrington potted her first collegiate goal in the tie.
- St. Lawrence opened the scoring just 3:01 into the game when Kennedy Marchment skated in on a breakaway and chipped a shot over the right pad of Bugalski on the power play.
- Northeastern answered at the 13:16 mark when Coyne tucked home a rebound at the right of the net after Jordan Krause's point-shot was initially stopped by SLU netminder Brooke Wolejko.
- The Huskies then took the lead just 53 seconds in the second period. After sophomore Christina Zalewski forced a turnover in the SLU end, Herrington picked up the puck on the left wing and fired a shot off a Saints' defender and into the upper left corner of the net to make it 2-1.
- The hosts equalized with another Marchment power-play goal at 13:09 of the frame. On a tic-tac-toe passing play, Jenna Marks threw the puck into the low slot, where Marchment was able to redirect the puck under the crossbar.

- The Huskies held a 37-29 edge in shots on goal and a 23-22 advantage in faceoffs.
