While overtime might have looked like the extra five minutes the Dutchwomen needed to end the game, it was the Huskies who would have the last say. The game-winner was put in by Brittany Esposito, who knocked the puck into the back of the Union net after a scramble in front. It was not the prettiest goal in the world but they all count the same.
The Dutchwomen can take a lot of positives away from this game. They certainly looked a lot stronger and more resolute then a year ago, and they gave the very tough Northeastern a game that on a different day, they might have won.
Union will take the ice on Saturday to play Boston University, the defending Hockey East champions. The puck will drop at 2 p.m.
