BOSTON - Goals by juniors Denisa Krizova and McKenna Brand helped the Northeastern women's hockey team (2-2-1) skate to a 2-2 tie against Syracuse (0-2-1) in a penalty-laden affair on Friday evening at Matthews Arena.

The Huskies and Orange combined for 28 penalty minutes and three power-play goals, including the opening strike from Krizova and both Syracuse tallies.

Sophomore goaltender Brittany Bugalski made 26 saves, while SU netminder Abbey Miller stopped 23 pucks, including a breakaway opportunity from sophomore Kasidy Anderson early in overtime.

Goal Recaps

- Northeastern struck first on a power-play goal by Krizova at the 3:28 mark of the second period. After a net-mouth scramble, senior Hayley Scamurra was able to force Miller into a sprawling save, resulting in a loose puck at the left of the net. Krizova quickly spotted the disc and roofed a shot into the upper right corner of the goal to make it 1-0.

- Syracuse tied the game just 1:10 later when Savannah Rennie collected a rebound at the right of the cage and stashed the puck under the crossbar.

- NU pulled back ahead just 30 seconds into the third period when Brand redirected a Maddie Hartman point shot under the bar to bring the score to 2-1.

- The Orange again had an answer at 10:12 of the final frame when Alysha Burriss wristed a shot home on the power play from the bottom of the right circle.


- Both Krizova and Brand extended their point-streaks to four games.

- Krizova has four goals and three assists in her last four, while Brand has four goals and two assists over that span.

- The Orange held a 28-25 advantage in shots on goal, however the Huskies had all five shots on net in overtime.

- Hartman registered her first point of the season with an assist on Brand's goal.
