Kendall Coyne set Northeastern’s record for career points with a hat trick as part of a 4-point day as the No. 8 Huskies (17-4-1, 12-2-0 Hockey East) completed a weekend sweep of the University of New Hampshire with a 5-2 victory on Sunday afternoon at the Whittemore Center in Durham, N.H.

Coyne, a senior, passed Hilary Witt (Class of 2000) as the program’s all-time leader in points with her second goal of the day early in the third period.

Coyne then tacked on an assist and an empty-net goal to reach 211 points. The hat trick was the 11th of Coyne’s career.

“The most important part of this weekend was getting 4 points against a tough team like UNH,” Coyne said. “But it’s a tremendous honor, and a testament to my teammates over the last four years.”

Hayley Scamurra and Taytum Clairmont also scored for Northeastern, and freshman Brittany Bugalski made 25 saves.

Amy Boucher and Devan Taylor tallied for the Wildcats (8-16-1, 5-10-0).
