Huska backstops UConn men’s hockey to program’s first-ever win over Yale


What a way to ring out the Connecticut sports year!

A prime-time hockey match-up between two of the state’s best was held on Monday when 18th-ranked Yale took on UConn.

Neither school had played for weeks because of a semester break and final exams. However, you’d never know it as both schools were sharp, especially the goaltenders.

After a scoreless first period, UConn struck first when Alexander Payusov found the back of the net to make it 1-0.

Later in the period, Yale showed why it is important to play to the final second.

Captain Anthony Walsh was able to score with less than a second left to tie things up 1-1 after two periods.

However, the Huskies got two in the third period and rode the stellar goaltending of Adam Huska who made 39 saves.

UConn would earn its first-ever win over Yale by a final score of 3-1.
