The Bobcats finally broke Newell at 3:41 of the second when Kelly Babstock found Nicole Brown for the goal. Quinnipiac capitalized on its third power-play opportunity at 18:24 when Erica Uden Johansson put away a pass from Nicole Kosta, with Regan Boulton. Babstock scored her league-leading 20th goal, unassisted with just 17 seconds remaining in the second period.
Brittany Lyons sealed the win with a goal from Nicole Connery at 19:34 of the final period.
Newell finished the game with 44 saves, the second most in her career. Victoria Vigilante made 21 saves in the win for Quinnipiac.
