Freshman Conor Morrison tallied his eighth goal of the season in the second period of Harvard’s contest with Princeton, but his offense wasn’t enough to carry his team. The Crimson struggled to solve Tiger netminder Zane Kalemba as it fell to its conference rival by a 2-1 count.
With the end of the season looming, the Harvard men’s hockey team has a shot at redemption against local rival Boston College, who defeated the Crimson in a close 3-2 match in early December. The Beanpot game, scheduled today at TD Garden, will measure how far the Harvard team has come from the 10-game losing streak it was on when it last faced the Eagles.
Freshman phenom Louis Leblanc has finally found his scoring touch to lead the men’s hockey team into a four-game winning stretch. The Quebec native scored three goals and dished out an assist last week, earning him another ECAC Rookie of the Week award for his clutch plays and overall intensity. He leads the Crimson with nine goals, and has also tallied seven assists.
Harvard notched its first away win since Oct. 30 by topping No. 13 Union, 4-1, on Friday before tying Rensselaer, 3-3, on Saturday
Freshman Louis Leblanc became the first Harvard player since Dominic Moore ’03 to record back-to-back multi-goal games on Monday, lighting the lamp twice in the Crimson’s 4-1 win over Dartmouth. Leblanc’s linemates, sophomore Alex Killorn and junior Michael Biega, each had two points.
