No. 3 New Hampshire’s defense has lived up to its No. 1 national ranking so far, holding No. 14 Colorado College to only eight shots on goal to move out to a 2-0 lead. It is the fourth game in a row, CC has trailed early.
Casey Thrush put the visiting Wildcats ahead when he skated deep into the Tigers zone to fire a hard shot glove side past CC goalie Josh Thorimbert from short range only two minutes into the nonconference contest.
New Hampshire went ahead 2-0 when a hard shot from just inside the blue line by defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk was stopped by Thorimbert. The puck ended up in Thorimbert’s pads and the puck fell into the goal as he straightened up to look for the puck with 9:11 remaining.
UNH out shot CC 16-8 in the first period.
