BOSTON - Sophomore Shelby Herrington notched her first collegiate three-point game, and senior Kendall Coyne scored twice to become the all-time leading goal scorer in Hockey East play as the No. 5 Northeastern women's hockey team (11-2-1, 7-1-0 WHEA) downed Vermont (3-11-0, 3-5-0 WHEA), 5-2, on Saturday at Matthews Arena.
Coyne scored career goals No. 71 and 72 in Hockey East play to pass Jenn Wakefield as the league's all-time top scorer. Freshman Kasidy Anderson also lit the lamp twice for her first collegiate two-goal game, while senior Jordan Krause dished out two assists.
Rookie Adrieana Rossini notched her first collegiate point with an assist on Anderson's second goal as the NU freshman class accounted for three points on the day.
- Coyne scored her first of the afternoon at the 6:38 mark of the first period. After taking a feed from sophomore Denisa Krizova at the left of the net, Coyne cut through the crease and chipped a shot off the right post and in to make it 1-0 Huskies.
- Krause manufactured NU's second goal at the 10:19 mark of the first, stripping the puck from a UVM forward in the neutral zone, before finding a streaking Coyne on the right wing. Coyne skated in with speed and slipped a shot through the five-hole of UVM netminder Molly Depew (35 saves) to break the Hockey East scoring record with her 72nd career goal in league play.
- Vermont cut the lead to 2-1 at 3:33 of the second period when Mackenzie MacNeil wristed a shot over the shoulder of Brittany Bugalski (16 saves) from the left circle.
- Northeastern responded with 25 seconds to play in the middle frame when Anderson flipped a backhander inside the right post from the left dot to push the lead to 3-1.
- Vermont again sliced the deficit to one when Victoria Andreakos swatted the puck by Bugalski on a 2-on-1 at the 7:21 mark of the third period.
- With the Catamounts pressing for the equalizer, Herrington turned the tides with a brilliant individual goal at 12:40 of the final frame. On the fore-check, the sophomore forced a turnover behind the UVM cage, before walking out in front and roofing a wrister to make it 4-2 Northeastern.
- Anderson padded the lead with her second of the game at 14:35 when she banged home a loose puck following a centering feed from Rossini in heavy traffic.
