Turner got the Bobcats on the board just 4:03 into the first period. MacKenzie dumped the puck behind Brown's net, then Turner collected the puck along the boards, skated toward the front of the net and poking it home for her seventh goal of the season to make it 1-0.
 
Lancaster then found the back of the net 14:25 into the first period to give Quinnipiac a two-goal advantage. Cianfarano blasted a shot toward net and Brown goalie Monica Elvin made a pad save, but Lancaster deflected the rebound into the back of the net to make it 2-0.
 
Quinnipiac then extended the advantage to three goals just eight seconds later. Following a faceoff win, Coutu-Godbout located the loose puck out in front of the net and poked it into the left side of the goal for her first career goal. Barry was credited with an assist on the play, her eighth helper of the year.
 
The Bobcats weren't done just yet, though, grabbing another goal with 3:11 left in the first period to make it 4-0. Marcon got in on the scoring action, one-timing a beautiful pass from Coutu-Godbout into the goal her fifth goal of the season. Coutu Godbout skated behind the net with the puck and delivered a feed to Marcon on the doorstep. Both Coutu-Godbout and Lancaster were credited with assists.
 
Turner notched her second goal of the game 8:51 into the second period on the power play. The senior located the puck in a scrum on the doorstep and chipped it in for her eighth score in 2016-17. Greco and Barry were each awarded assists.
 
Coutu-Godbout then grabbed her second career goal, and her second goal of the game, 2:53 into the third period. She fired a wrist shot into the upper right corner of the net after finding a puck unclaimed out in front of the goal. Cherpak earned her first assist of the season on the play.
 
Pennoyer was next to light the lamp, scoring on a backhander from the right side of the net with 7:32 left in the final stanza. The goal is her third of the season, while Marmer and Samoskevich each grabbed an assist.
 
Turner netted her third goal of the game just over two minutes after Pennoyer's score, slapping a puck from mid-air into the back of the net to give her nine goals on the season. Greco and MacKenzie earned assists on that play.
 
The ninth and final goal was Marcon's - her second of the night. Cianfarano and Baumgardt each earned an assist on the goal, which came with 3:20 left in action.

Freshman goaltender Abbie Ives (Bedford Hills, New York) recorded her third career shutout in the win, making 11 total saves on the night. Ives now owns a 0.23 goals-against average and a .983 save percentage through her first six collegiate games.
