UConn gets it underway tonight for real. They were served a loss in their exhibition game against St. Francis Xavier but look to bounce back.

You can find our full season preview with a roundtable here and the preview for the weekend series with Alabama-Huntsville here.

Third Period

10:00- the pace of play has slowed considerably. Only six shots between the two teams, after seeing a combined 41 through the first two periods. Still a 5-0 scoreline.

11:17- Alabama gets a major and game misconduct for hitting behind. It was committed by Brennan Sauliner.

16:47- and one more for good measure. Evan Richardson nets his second to make it 6-0.

Second Period

1:25- Newpower off for tripping early in the period.

7:04- Evan Richardson shoves a rebound home from Johnny Austin and now it’s 4-0 Huskies.

9:47- Tage Thompson nets his second of the night, getting one just under the bar. 5-0 UConn.

15:38- things have settled down, but UConn has five goals on 17 shots and Huntsville has zero goals on 14 shots.

20:00- the Huskies have dominated this matchup. It’s 5-0 and Rob Nichols has not had to make very many good saves so far.

First period

6:14- UConn will have 1:28 of 5-on-3 time after two quick Huntsville penalties. The Huskies have dominated so far but have not scored as of yet.

6:50- goal UConn! Freshman Wyatt Newpower takes the feed from Tage Thompson and puts it through. Huskies still on the power play.
