What: Women’s Ice Hockey vs. Boston University
When: Saturday, January 29th, 2011, 4:00 PM
Where: Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum
Result: Loss, 4-1
According to the Box Score, this game drew 287 fans. I’d say it was more like 200, but either way it was more than I expected. It was Skating Strides Day, which meant the Huskies wore pink instead of white, and there was Breast Cancer Fundraising all around the arena. But as for the game, it wasn’t too nice. UConn’s Women’s Hockey did well last season, but had struggled this season. However, they headed into Friday’s matchup at BU on a five-game winning streak but lost 2-1 after being up 1-0 heading into the third period. After that letdown, they struggled again yesterday, giving up two goals in the first period. After a scoreless second, they gave up two goals in period 3, before Jennifer Chaisson scored with under 4 minutes to go to give the Huskies their only goal. We’d lose, 4-1. A disappointing game. But I’m still looking forward to the game vs. Providence at the Whalers Hockey Fest. That should be fun. And we’ve got one more home game before then. For now though, that’s it. See you Monday after the Women’s Basketball vs. Duke.
