CC has a 12-6 advantage in shots on goal and has two power plays to New Hampshire's one.
First period analysis:
A muggy night in Durham has perhaps contributed to the soft ice at Whittemore Arena tonight. Players are sliding everywhere and are having trouble making quick changes of direction and stopping on a dime. Both goalies have made some clutch saves to keep the game scoreless.
CC's goaltender Richard Bachman made a point-blank save with less than five minute left in the period on a shot from center Peter LeBlanc. New Hampshire backup Peter Foster shut down a three-on-two rush by the McCulloch-Johnson-Walsky line after Walsky created a neutral-zone turnover.
The Tigers are doing a much better job of possessing the puck out of their defensive zone tonight and aside from LeBlanc's shot, have limited the Wildcats to outside shots.
