After falling behind New Hampshire 3-0 in the first period, Terriers rallied to narrow the margin to one, but dropped a 4-3 decision at the Whittemore Center. In the first period, the Wildcats scored a shorthander—after Matt O’Connor made the initial save on a breakaway--, then on a power play followed by an even-strength goal.
"I thought they were a little bit more ready at the drop of the puck. I love the fact that we kept playing after that, and we had chances after that. It’s frustrating because I think we’ve been playing a lot better lately, other than the consolation game in the Beanpot, then we just don’t seem to get rewarded for it."
