Huskies Stopped By Quinnipiac [AUDIO]

It didn’t take long for the Bobcats to draw first blood against SCSU, with Jordan Samuels-Thomas beating Huskies goaltender Ryan Faragher for a soft goal at 1:49. Samuels’ power play goal was his 14th of the season and was assisted by Russell Goodman.

Quinnipiac made the score 2-0 when Ben Arndt beat Faragher at 5:07 of the opening frame. Arndt was assisted on his ninth of the season by Samuels-Thomas.

QU would get one more before the end of the first period with Jeremy Langolis notching his 13th of the year from Zach Davies at 11:19 to make the score 3-0. The Bobcats scored on three of their first four shots on net.

Huskies senior forward Drew LeBlanc said the team came out a little flat.

SCSU outshot Quinnipiac 13-9 in the opening period.

SCSU’s Joey Benik scored his fifth goal of the postseason, after scoring just three during the regular season, at 6:25 of the second period to cut the Bobcat lead to 3-1. Kevin Gravel and Cory Thorson were each given assists on the goal.

The Bobcats answered back with a Kellen Jones goal that made the score 4-1, which would be the final score. Huskies head coach Bob Motzko said after the game that the fourth goal was devastating.
