Playing in its third straight ECAC championship, Harvard lit the lamp in every period of a 4-1 victory over Cornell, bringing home its 10th ECAC title in program history and extending its unbeaten streak to a program-best 16 games.
With the Bobcats fighting to keep their season alive at Herb Brooks Arena on Friday, Sean Malone netted three goals for the first time in his career, lifting top-seeded Harvard to its 13th straight victory and a spot in its third consecutive conference championship game.
Erasing a third-period deficit for the second consecutive night, the No. 2 Crimson upended Yale by a 4-3 Saturday scoreline to complete a series sweep of the Bulldogs, cap an unbeaten season at home, and earn a spot in next weekend’s ECAC semifinals.
With a perfect 11-0-2 home record to preserve, the conference favorites rose to the occasion in the game’s final frame, riding three unanswered third-period goals to a 6-4 come-from-behind victory. Harvard now stands one game from punching its third ticket in as many years to the ECAC semifinals in Lake Placid.
As The Crimson’s resident expert on all things men’s hockey, I’m writing this for you, hockey handicappers. I now present to you a handful of (fictional) odds explaining who is most likely to take home the Whitelaw Cup as king of the ECAC.
A 6-3 win over St. Lawrence paired with a tie between Union and Cornell at Lynah Rink means that the Harvard men’s hockey team has won a share of its first ECAC regular-season championship since 1994.
Currently one-point behind Union (33 points), the Crimson (32 points) must win and receive help from Ivy League rival Cornell to capture the ECAC regular-season championship.
