Strathman made a quick deke on Darling and put the puck into the back of the net for the shorthanded goal, making it 2-1 Huskies.
‘We were on the kill, so we were in our zone and we got the puck and they had too many guys trapped down low, so I saw an opportunity to jump,’ Strathman said. ‘He [McNeely] saw me the whole time and heard me from the red line in. We had the three-on-one and he just made a nice pass.’
With 7:38 elapsed in the period, Maine forward Brian Flynn scored a power play goal, tying the game at 2-2. This time, the Huskies answered back less than a minute later. Tuckerman gave the Huskies the lead for good when he skated into the Maine zone by himself and snapped a shot between two defenders and over Darling’s right shoulder.
‘I thought he was our best player tonight,’ Cronin said of Tuckerman. ‘It was real important that he got into a groove there; he gives us a lot of confidence offensively.’
After Saturday’s game, Tuckerman said he knew it was not a smart decision to take the major penalty the previous night. He said he was happy to contribute to the win.
‘We know we didn’t play as well as we could in Friday’s game,’ Tuckerman said. ‘It’s now my sophomore year, I’ve been trying to add more to the team and I’m finally getting comfortable.’
With 9:40 remaining, the Huskies got their second power play goal of the night when a rebound came to senior forward Kyle Kraemer, who put it in the net with 8:40 remaining.
Almost two minutes later, the Huskies put the game away. Still on the power play, junior defenseman Mike Hewkin found junior forward Matt Lipinski, who scored his first collegiate goal, icing the Huskies’ victory at 5-2.
‘It was a really gutsy win, I’m happy for our guys,’ Cronin said. ‘The power play was obviously the catalyst behind the scoring, but I could tell we were in a rhythm right away.’
It was the first time the Huskies scored five goals since a 5-3 road win last season at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst Feb. 13.
‘I think we’ve struggled scoring goals lately and we’re looking to pour it on in the next couple games before the holiday break and get some wins,’ Tuckerman said.
Northeastern will play a home-and-home Hockey East series with Providence this weekend. Friday’s game will be at Matthews Arena with the series shifting to Providence Saturday. Both games begin at 7 p.m.
