(WTNH)–The UConn men’s hockey team hit the holiday break on a roll, winning five of six. Since returning, the Huskies have struggled to score goals.

Mike Cavanaugh’s team was back at it at practice on Wednesday, after being shut out by Quinnipiac, 3-0 on Tuesday night.Related:Quinnipiac men’s hockey blanks UConn

UConn has lost its last two, and have been outscored 5-0 in those games.

“Our defense has been solid now for probably the last eight games. Right now we’re not scoring goals,” Cavanaugh said. “We’ve gone into a little funk, and sometimes you just need to get one off the shin pad to get you going.”

UConn hosts Merrimack at the XL Center on Friday at 7 p.m.
