Box Score

HAMDEN, Conn. (1/7/14) – Senior Denna Laing scored the team’s sixth short-handed goal of the season but No. 10 Quinnipiac halted Princeton’s four-game winning streak in a 3-1 game at TD Bank Sports Center on Tuesday, Jan. 7.

Kelly Babstock scored all three goals for the Bobcats, including an empty-net goal in the final minute.

Just one point separated the two teams in the league standings. Quinnipiac expanded it to three points and is now 6-2-4 (16 points) while Princeton is 6-5-1 (13 points).

Babstock put the Bobcats on the board at 4:08 and expanded her team’s lead at 16:42 when she fired a shot from the right boards that went five-hole on Kimberly Newell.

Princeton came out of the second intermission determined to get back in it and they did, dominating the period, with shots falling 12-8 in its favor.

Brianna Leahy intercepted a Quinnipiac breakout in the corner and fed Laing in the left circle. Laing fired a high shot over the shoulder of Chelsea Laden to make it a -1 game at 1:54.

The goal marks the Tigers’ sixth short-handed goal of the season. Princeton has the second-most short-handed goals in the NCAA, with only Boston College having more.

With two minutes to play and Princeton taking possession, Newell signaled to the bench. At 1:50 Princeton did pull Newell in favor of the extra attacker.

Leahy had the Tigers’ best chance with she blasted a shot from inside the right circle that Laden flopped on to cover.

A blocked shot by Ali Pankowski was picked up by Babstock as she fought off defender Rose Alleva. Babstock skated up the ice and a player layed down to block the shot but she deked Pankowski and wiped the puck into the empty net with 1:05 remaining.

Newell made 27 saves in net for Princeton, as Quinnipiac held a slim 30-26 edge in shots.

Princeton, now 9-7-2, travels to Union and Rensselaer this weekend.
