The first period was played at a fast place. The Huskies forecheck was unrelenting creating plenty of scoring chances, but Warriors goaltender Lea-Kristine Demers was a brick wall denying the Huskies of a goal. Taylor Crosby was just as good, shutting the door time after time en route to 10 first period saves.
It was alumni day for the Huskies. After the first period some of the best members of the past 30 women’s hockey teams were brought onto the ice and honored with a highlight video.
