Durham, N.H. -
The women's ice hockey team tied No. 1 ranked New Hampshire, 1-1, this afternoon in Hockey East action. The fierce rivals, who have met in four of the five Hockey East Championship games, skated in another close contest at UNH's Whittemore Center. Senior Danielle Tangredi (London, Ontario) scored for the Friars, while junior goaltender Danielle Ciarletta (Blaine, Minn.) made 27 saves. Providence moves to 9-9-3 (4-2-2 HE), while New Hampshire now stands at 20-3-1 (10-0-1 HE) on the season.
Tangredi, skating in her 100th collegiate game, gave the Friars a 1-0 lead at the 15:05 mark of the first period. Classmate Sarah Feldman (Fall River, Mass.) assisted on the goal, giving her 100 career points. Feldman is the 32nd Friar to reach the 100 point plateau. UNH answered at 17:49 of the first, as Sadie Wright-Ward tied the game, 1-1. Martine Garland and Kacey Bellamy assisted on the power-play goal.
Ciarletta finished with 27 saves, including three saves in the extra stanza to preserve the tie. For UNH, Kayley Herman made 18 saves.
