On Friday, UConn men’s hockey earned its first win of the 2019-20 season, beating RPI 5-2. Here’s what happened:
An overall strong performance
Throughout the first three games of the season, UConn struggled to play a full 60 minutes in all phases of the game. The Huskies looked dominant for stretches but also went through periods where they’d get completely outplayed. If the offense was clicking, the defense was off. If the defense held strong, the offense couldn’t find the back of the net.
Everything finally came together for UConn against RPI. The Huskies netted a season-high five goals and out-shot the Engineers 36-31.
