Preview: Men's Hockey Looks to Take It To Another Gear, Avoid Falling to .500 Against a Hot Dartmouth Team
It’s time for the Harvard men’s hockey team to take it to another gear. The squad is cutting it close, though. With only eight games remaining in its regular season campaign, the Crimson is still in the progress of “clicking.” After last weekend’s back-to-back shutout losses, Harvard risks dropping to .500 if it falls to Ivy League rival Dartmouth this Friday.
Not many goaltenders blank the Harvard men’s hockey team—but on Friday night against No. 2/4 Cornell, the Crimson ran into a very special goalie indeed.
Donato and his Harvard squad know what’s in store this weekend, as the Big Red and the Raiders barrel into town bringing their grit and defensive intensity with them. Both visitors are looking to cap off sweeps in their regular season series with the Crimson, after an early-season trip to Upstate New York proved unfruitful for this weekend’s hosts.
The Crimson needed overtime to deliver Tommy Amaker his 200th win at Harvard but was able to do so, topping Dartmouth, 62-57.
In a game with multiple momentum shifts and an audience that only got more boisterous, the Crimson put away the 4-3 win in overtime, and returned from its annual weekend in the North Country with three of four points.
After three lead changes, five advantages erased, and 12 goals altogether, the Crimson and the Golden Knights skated to a 6-6 draw.
With a 3-1 victory over Princeton and a 2-2 tie with Quinnipiac this weekend, the Crimson nabbed three out of four possible ECAC points and remains without a loss in 2018.
Harvard carried play for much of the game and outshot the Engineers, 41-27, but the teams skated to an even 2-2 score after 65 minutes of hockey. The ECAC foes traded scores in the first 40 minutes of play and entered the third frame even at one. In the final third of regulation, each team lit the lamp en route to a stalemate.
Following a disappointing performance in nonconference play, the Harvard men's basketball team shook off a test from visiting Dartmouth, 61-51, in its Ivy League opener on Saturday afternoon. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Crimson and was the team's third consecutive victory over the Big Green.
In the spirit of the new year, the Harvard men’s hockey team is hoping to steer its season in a new direction. After struggling on the road in 2017, the squad returned home to the Bright-Landry Hockey Center this weekend and reached another checkpoint on its journey back to contending in the ECAC. For the first time since early November, the Crimson sits above .500 thanks to wins over RPI and Union.
On a night where Vermont fans appeared to outnumber Harvard supporters, the Crimson struggled to find offensive rhythm without starting point guard Bryce Aiken.
