The Huskies Dylan Sikura (2 goals, 1 assist) and Adam Gaudette (1 goal, 1 assist) were all over the ice for Northeastern in the first two periods creating numerous scoring chances. Sikura's 11 shots on goal were only 4 less than Quinnipiac had all game. After forty minutes Quinnipiac trailed 4-3 after giving up a late period goal by Sikura (2nd of the game) with 1.3 seconds on the clock. "We talked. I didn't yell after two periods. I wasn't happy and I was blunt but I think our guys were accountable and we talked about re-setting and finding a way to play better", said head coach Rand Pecknold following the victory.

Nick Jermain assisted on all three third period goals. Keith Petruzzelli made 37 saves for his first career win. The two teams wrap up their two game series Saturday night at Matthews Arena before Quinnipiac has a week off before heading into ECAC play.
