Men's Hockey Period-by-Period Box Score and Notes: UConn @ UMass-Lowell

UConn fall to the No. 7 River Hawks 6-4 at the Tsongas Center in Lowell, Ma. All boxes are cumulative at the end of the period.

Third Period, FINAL

Some notes:

  • UConn had two early power plays, with # total shots during them, but they were not as successful as they let up a really sloppy 2-on-1 and were scored on short-handed at 6:41 to go down 5-2.
  • Completely off-topic but OH MY GOD Kemba Walker:
  • UConn's offense was what got the criticism this week, but I don't think that's all of their troubles.  Defense has a really hard time clearing, and the PP team has scored twice.
  • Richardson connected on a good team possession, one of the few UConn amounted during the night, their first full-strength goal of the night.
  • On that Richardson goal, Kunnas picked up a goal and two assists for the night after he was switched from D to front line.
  • UConn had more offensive production than they usually put up, unfortunately it was against a very offensively talented (and FAST) UMass-Lowell.
  • In fact, they weren't done yet with a great offensive possession by UConn Trevor Gerling scored to pull the Huskies within 1.
  • UConn pulled Nichols with 1:14 to go in regulation, but it didn't pay off as UML's Adam Chapie intercepted a pass and scored to put the River Hawks up by two with :19 left on the clock.
  • A valiant effort by the Huskies, but the River Hawks really just overpowered them, scoring six goals and holding UConn to 24 shots, as much as UML had through two periods.

Second Period

Some notes:

  • UConn came out much stronger in this period, but still was beat in early shots.  Better at easing the pressure though.
  • In fact, no shots for the Huskies until about 11 minutes in.  UML had five before their first goal.
  • Speaking of that goal, it came off the first good UConn possession, and was fed well to Mike Louria by Michael Kapla and Joe Gamberdella with some nifty stick work to beat Nichols.
  • UConn answered right back with another power play goal, this time by Kunnas to bring the score to 3-2.  UConn certainly looked like they could hang so long as they had a man down...
  • ... but as soon as it was back to even strength, Ryan Collins broke Huskies' spirits with a quick shot.  He was assisted by Ryan McGrath and Chris Forney.
  • UMass-Lowell held the Huskies to 4 shots.  That's not gonna cut it in any league.
  • PP has really stepped it up this game, unfortunately the even-strength offense is being well-contained by UML with constant offensive pressure from the Riverhawks.

First Period

Some notes:

  • UMass came in with the largest Freshman class in the nation.
  • UMass scored five seconds into their first power play, bringing UConn
  • UConn had a power play at 12:28 but only got off three shots, with no success.
  • Both goals came off designed plays for UMass and Nichols had seemingly no sight line.
  • The River Hawks speed was the biggest factor at first 15 minutes of the game.  Forced UConn to make sloppy turnovers, seemed tired midway through the period.
  • UConn went on the PP at 14:35 and scored on their first shot in the PP from a deflection by Kirtland, shot originally by Poe.  Poe gets credit with the assist as does Kunnas.
  • UMass-Lowell had the better period, but UConn finished strong after re-energized by the goal.
