UConn downs No. 11 Vermont behind Huska's 34 saves

  UConn ended its three-game losing streak with a win over No. 11 Vermont.

HARTFORD, Conn. – UConn freshman goaltender Adam Huska made 34 saves to backstop the Huskies to a 3-1 win over No. 11 Vermont on Friday night in front of 6,297 fans at the XL Center. The Huskies split the season series with Vermont and grab two points and even their record at 10-10-6 overall and 6-6-2 in Hockey East.

The win also ended a season-long three-game losing streak for the Huskies as well as a five-game slide in the all-time series with Vermont.  The Catamounts are now 16-8-2 overall and 8-5-1 in the league.

The Huskies got a second period goal from sophomore Karl El-Mir to open the scoring and built their lead to 3-0 in the third thanks to goals by juniors Johnny Austin and Kasperi Ojantakanen.

Vermont put 17 shots on Huska in the third period and finally cracked the goaltender late on a Craig Puffer goal at 17:32. The Catamounts ended the night with a 35-26 edge on shots but were 0-for-3 on the power play. Freshman goaltender Stefanos Lekkas made 23 saves in taking the loss.
