CANTON, N.Y. - Senior Kendall Coyne notched her eighth career hat trick to lead the Northeastern women's hockey team (1-0-1) to a wild 9-5 win at St. Lawrence (0-1-1) on Sunday at Appleton Arena.
Coyne recorded four points in the game, while freshman Kasidy Anderson and sophomore Denisa Krizova each posted a goal and two assists. Junior Hayley Scamurra lit the lamp twice, and Christina Zalewski and Heather Mottau also scored as NU posted its highest single-game scoring output since November 2012.
- Coyne opened the scoring with an unassisted goal at 4:12 of the first period. After intercepting a pass in the defensive zone, Coyne raced up the ice alone and slipped a backhand through the pads of SLU netminder Brooke Wolejko.
- The Saints answered at 8:27 when Megan Armstrong fired a point-shot through heavy traffic inside the left post.
- Krizova gave NU the lead back just over two minutes later, jamming home a rebound from a Coyne shot in the slot.
- The Huskies padded the advantage to 3-1 at 14:09 when Anderson scored her first collegiate goal. After taking a feed from senior Tori Hickel in the neutral zone, Anderson gained the SLU zone with speed, before cutting through three defenders en route to a pretty backhand finish at the left post.
- Northeastern added a fourth goal on the power play at 16:48 when Coyne's blast from the right point took a deflection off a St. Lawrence stick and fluttered into the top left corner of the goal.
- Justine Reyes pulled a goal back for SLU at the 18:14 mark when she tucked home a Jenna Marks feed in front.
- The Huskies tacked on a fifth first-period goal with 54 seconds showing on the clock on a tic-tac-toe passing play. On a 3-on-1 break, redshirt junior Paige Savage laid a pass back to sophomore McKenna Brand, who then found a trailing Mottau for a snipe under the crossbar from the right circle to make it 5-2.
- Northeastern went right back to work early in the second period as Scamurra collected a loose puck in the low slot and wristed a shot under the crossbar at 7:40 to push the scoreline to 6-2.
- St. Lawrence reduced the deficit to 6-4 with a pair of quick strikes by Kennedy Marchment and Reyes to make it a two-goal game with nine minutes remaining in the middle frame.
- Zalewski flipped the momentum with a beautiful goal at the 17:41 mark to make it 7-4 Northeastern. After freshman Maddie Hartman made a composed play at the blueline to evade a defender, Anderson picked up the puck behind the net, before slipping a centering pass to Zalewski for a one-time finish in the slot.
- Coyne completed her hat trick with 2:19 left in the second period to bring the score to 8-4. Krizova created the play after forcing a turnover along the right-wing boards. While being tripped by a defender, Krizova was able to shovel a pass to Coyne, who rifled a shot over the glove of the SLU netminder for her eighth career hat trick.
- After Marchment brought the scoreline to 8-5, the Saints elected to pull the goaltender in a last-ditch effort to get back in the game. With the net open, Anderson made a great play to chip the puck to center for Scamurra, who backhanded a shot into the cage from center ice to make it 9-4 with 2:27 left in the third.
