With time winding down in the third period, Turgeon took over the game, assisting her fellow forward Jovanovich to give the Crimson a 3-1 lead with under seven minutes remaining.
“Val definitely had a lot of energy on the ice yesterday,” Larcom said. “She created a lot of chances for us. To see her have so much success is great because she’s been working hard and contributing a lot.”
Just three minutes later, Jovanovich returned the favor on the power-play, feeding Turgeon for her second goal of the game and sixth of the season. For Turgeon, Saturday’s first star of the game, the two goals and three points were both career highs. The Denver, Colo., native’s breakout game, along with Larcom’s solid goaltending were the defining performances from a solid home victory.
“I think yesterday’s victory was great,” Hallett said. “It’s amazing when you can come off a loss and bounce back like today. The energy that we used to put Princeton away today was exciting.”
