Opportunity knocks for the Harvard men's hockey team this weekend.
The Crimson (7-8-1, 6-4-1 ECAC) enters the weekend in an enviable, yet vulnerable position, as it sits atop the ECAC standings with six teams, all within four points, nipping at its heels.
Hoping to strengthen its lead in the ECAC, the Crimson travels to league foes Clarkson and St. Lawrence this weekend.
Because parity has characterized the ECAC this season, this weekend's double-header gives the Crimson a good opportunity to pad its league lead.
"It's really exciting," said junior center Steve Moore. "On any given night, any team can win. We have to be sharp in every game."
Moore is Harvard's leading point scorer. He has garnered 10 points on two goals and eight assists in league play, good enough for sixth in the conference.
Tonight, the Crimson faces off against Clarkson (5-9-3, 0-4-3), the defending ECAC champion, which has struggled so far this season.
Clarkson's record is the not a true indicator of the team's talent. A strong, physical team, Clarkson is capable of pulling out a scrappy upset.
