Providence, RI - Brown (8-8-4): After not playing for two weeks, the Bears dropped a 3-2 decision at Connecticut last Saturday. Brown spotted Connecticut a 3-0 lead by the mid point of the second period and battled back to score two goals before the end of the period, but could not get the equalizer, despite out-shooting the Huskies 13-2 in the third period. Sophomore Jessica Link is tied for third in the ECAC in point scoring with an average of 2.00 per game and leads Brown with 14 goals and 14 assists for 28 points. She has tallied a point in seven straight games while freshman Keaton Zucker has scored a goal in three straight games.
Vermont (3-17-2): Brown easily defeated the then Div. III Catamounts 9-0 and 3-0 last season. With the Bears 3-0 win earlier this season, they are now looking for their fourth shutout victory over Vermont. The Catamounts dropped both of their games last weekend, and nine out of their last ten, falling 4-0 to Princeton and 3-0 to Yale. Senior goaltender Tiffany Hayes posted her 13th career 50-plus save contest and fourth this season with 55 saves in the loss to Princeton. Senior Jenny Agnew leads Vermont with five goals and three assists for eight points on the year.
Dartmouth (16-5-0): Brown will look to even up the all-time series with a win, as it stands at 23-24-6 in Dartmouth's favor. The Bears defeated the Big Green 4-3 in an overtime thriller at the ECAC Semifinals last season. Games between the two have historical been close with 23 of the 53 meetings being decided by one goal or less. The Big Green came away with two shutout victories last weekend against Yale and Princeton. Dartmouth defeated the Tigers 4-0 and the Bulldogs 8-0, increasing its win streak to five games. Senior Carly Haggard leads Dartmouth with 24 goals and 14 assists for 38 points. Katherine Weatherston is second with 15 goals and 12 assists for 27 points.
