After three weeks without a game, the Huskies are back in business at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center against the Miami RedHawks. A concern with the team was how they were going to play after such a break. The concern was quickly diminished as the Huskies scored four goals in the first period alone with a quick start to this game. The Huskies came out of the gate with an amazing offense that carried through the entire game.
The Huskies offense was electric and unstoppable against the RedHawks defense all night long. Zach Okabe had an amazing start with two goals in the first period, which jump started the entire team to contribute to the offensive attack which is arguably the best offense in college hockey.
The second period was not much different, as the Huskies put up five goals, including two goals that were scored shorthanded. One of those goals were scored on a 5 on 3 against the Huskies. The Huskies penalty kill was top notch tonight and they were focused on not allowing a goal during shorthanded situations and was one of the biggest keys to the Huskies dominating win tonight. The third period had its goals as well, and put the game to bed, if it hadn’t already. The Huskies had a complete performance tonight and play the RedHawks again tomorrow night to close out the series against them.
