Hockey slang terms, explained by college stars

BOSTON — Lauren MacInnis scored her first goal of the season, while Maddie Mills and Chloé Aurard added tallies of their own to lead the nationally ranked #6 Northeastern women's hockey team (7-2, 6-2 Hockey East) to a 3-0 win over the #4 Boston College Eagles (6-2, 4-2 Hockey East) in Matthews Arena.

  • Mills' fourth goal of the season came on the powerplay; as a well-worked passing play found her with some space near the goal, she stickhandled past the goaltender and poked the puck home for the score.
  • Aurard got a piece of a long-range drive from Skylar Fontaine, tipping the puck into the back of the net for her fourth goal of the season.
  • The starting defenders of Brooke Hobson and Fontaine had a productive day on offense, with both players notching two assists.
  • Tessa Ward and Peyton Anderson also earned points, getting credit for the assist on MacInnis' goal.
  • Aerin Frankel earned her third shutout of the season, increasing her record-holding tally to 31 career shutouts, making 23 saves against the Eagles tonight.
  • The shutout was Northeastern's fifth as a team this season.
  • The Huskies start the 2021-22 campaign with a 2-0-0 record against teams in the top-10 polls.
