Both teams suffered from the dreaded second period blues on Friday night.
The Engineers watched a 1-0 lead turn into a 3-1 deficit during the second period of their game with UMass, eventually losing, 5-3.
The second period also cost the Huskies in their game with Army. All the scoring in that game took place in the second period, with UConn coming out on the short end, 2-1.
We’ll see which team does a better job of playing a full 60 minutes on Saturday.
