Needing a win and a Union loss or tie to capture its first Cleary Cup in 23 seasons, the No. 3 Harvard men's hockey team hosts No. 20 St. Lawrence in tonight's ECAC regular season finale. Follow the action live with The Crimson.
Tack on another trophy. Because thanks to a 6-3 win over St. Lawrence and a tie between Union and Cornell at Lynah Rink, 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.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Playing inside the Bears’ den, Harvard skated circles around the overmatched hosts. The Crimson’s eighth consecutive victory closes out an 8-1-1 run through the Ivy League—Harvard’s best league mark since the 1993-1994 campaign.
Harvard's 4-2 victory Friday night marked its first road win against Yale since Jan. 29, 2005.
Senior forward Tyler Moy scored the Crimson's first and fourth goals of the night on Friday.
Senior forward Tyler Moy (2) and freshman defenseman John Marino (12) shake hands with members of the Bulldogs after Friday's game. The two combined for three of the Crimson's four goals.
NEW HAVEN, Conn. — With a 4-2 victory at Yale—its first road win over the Bulldogs since 2005, Harvard secured the outright Ivy League championship for the first time since the 2005-2006 season.
For the first time in 24 years, the Beanpot belongs to the Harvard Crimson.
The Harvard men’s hockey team stands 60 minutes from a Beanpot trophy for the first time in almost a decade. Meeting the Crimson in its long-awaited return to the finals, however, is 30-time champion Boston University.
The Crimson scored four times in the first period and a half, chasing sophomore Jake Kupsky from his goal en route to a 6-2 victory that moves Harvard into first place in the ECAC.
Tonight, the top spot in the ECAC will be up for grabs when Harvard and Union—two teams with major question marks in net—square off at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center.
Harvard's four goals—scored exclusively by a senior class stuck playing in its seventh straight Beanpot matinee—proved to be enough. Enough to hold off the pesky Huskies. Enough to erase a nine-year championship game drought. And enough to put the Crimson in position to claim its first Beanpot trophy in 24 years next Monday.
Boston College and Boston University, Harvard's potential second round Beanpot matchups, will face off Monday night after the Crimson takes on Northeastern.
Freshman goaltender Joe Woll, once a Harvard commit, has a .921 save percentage this season. Yet, he did surrender four goals to the Crimson on Nov. 18.
