When fourth-year defenseman Patrick McNally went down with a right leg injury in January, the Harvard men's ice hockey team's season took a turn for the worse.

Two Harvard teams—women's ice hockey and men's basketball—are already in the NCAA tournament. Men's ice hockey will likely need at least a win against Quinnipiac this Friday in the ECAC semifinals to earn an at-large bid to its NCAA tournament.
With a trip to Lake Placid on the line, Harvard and Yale square off for the sixth time this season Sunday in Game 3 of the ECAC tournament quarterfinals.
