Joel Beal. Brian Kerr, Nathan Gillies, and Marc Neron also added goals in the first,
all at even strength. The Huskies pulled goalie Jason Carey at 11:42 after allowing
the four goals on 12 shots. Artie Imbriano finished the game for UConn.
The Dutchmen added three goals in the second by Beal, Poirier, and Jason Visser.
Scott Seney scored the eighth goal midway through the third.
Beal and Seney led the Dutchmen in scoring with three points each (1-2-3) while
Randy Dagenais, Gillies, Kerr, and Poirier each had two points.

Freshman goalie Kris Mayotte improved to 5-0-1 after turning away all 15 UConn
shots for his first collegiate shutout. Carey and Imbriano made eight and 17 saves
