The Quinnipiac Bobcats got goals from former Vipers Kellen and Connor Jones in a 6-1 win over Massachusetts Minutemen Saturday night at High Point Solutions Arena.
Quinnipiac improved to 13-2-2 (6-1-1 ECAC) and UMass fell to 3-10-2 (1-6-2 Hockey East).
Kellen’s eighth of the year made it 1-1. Former Trail Smoke Eater Travis St. Denis scored once on the power-play to put the Bobcats up 4-1.
St. Denis beat Steve Mastalerz over the shoulder from a sharp angle for the third goal before 3,500 fans.
“The power play is big,” said Connor Jones. “It’s a huge part of college hockey. We have two balanced units and that is helping us out.”
Connor Jones scored the fifth goal (his 6th) in the third period after Alex Barron pinched to keep the puck in the zone on the near boards and Connor’s brother, Kellen, fed him on the near post. Enderby product Brooks Robinson (Cowichan Valley Capitals) picked up one assist.
