Men's Hockey: Vermont completes weekend sweep of UNH
The Wildcats, battling for position in Hockey East and looking to make a case for an NCAA tournament berth, were swept by the Catamounts at the Whittemore Center. Vermont defeated UNH 5-2 Friday night before finishing off the sweep with Saturday night's win.
Vermont (15-9-3, 7-7-0 Hockey East), which won the first game of the weekend series with a 5-2 victory at the Whittemore Center Friday night, jumped out to a 2-0 lead with a pair of goals early in the second period Saturday.
That would finish the scoring on the night, however, as UNH couldn't net the equalizer against Vermont goaltender Mike Santaguida, who made 28 saves in the win.
DeSmith, who made 24 saves Friday night before being replaced with 10 minutes remaining in the game, made 28 saves Saturday night for the Wildcats.
