HARTFORD, CT The Quinnipiac Bobcats (7-10-2 overall, 3-5-1 ECACHL) came into the game with offensive problems but were able to find three goals in dealing UCONN its second straight shutout loss, 3-0, on Tuesday night before 3,852 at the XL Center.

The post-holiday scoring drought for the Huskies (8-13-2 overall, 5-8-1 Hockey East) has been extended to six periods. Over that stretch, they’ve been outscored 5-0 after having played so well just before the break.

“I am really happy with the way we played and I am really happy with the defense we’re playing, but we’re struggling to score goals. It happens as you go through the season. We were going well there for awhile, but we have to to do a better job of getting to the blue area and to the net. The story of the game was (we had) 58 attempts, 17 blocked, and 20 off target,” remarked UCONN head coach Mike Cavanaugh. “37 of the 58 attempts never get to the net. That’s why we’re not scoring. The powerplay wasn’t sharp. Our first one was good, but we were out of sync. We had a five-on-three and didn’t get the puck to the net.”  Continue reading
