"I knew this wasn’t a sports school—a wild notion when you consider about 20 percent of the student body competes in intercollegiate athletics. But college is what you make of it. I wanted to be at a sports school, so I made Harvard one."
Originally, Harvard and Minnesota-Duluth were just supposed to play hockey. A quarterfinal series between the two teams would determine who moved on to the stage of the tournament we now call the Frozen Four. But the sideshow that ensued back in 1985 ranks among one of the wildest and wackiest events in the history of both Harvard Hockey and The Crimson.
In order to share any pedestals with the boys of ’89, No. 2 Harvard (26-5-2, 16-4-2 ECAC) first must do something it has accomplished just once since its national championship run: win an NCAA tournament game.
