W. Hockey Shakes Off Rust

The Canadian women routed the U.S., 6-0, before a crowd of 14,658 at the Air Canada Centre.

Grudge Match

When one of the best defensive teams in the country squares off against an offensive juggernaut, anything can happen.


On Saturday, however, Harvard and Northeastern both showed up at Bright Hockey Center with defense on their minds.

"Both teams played great defense," said Harvard senior goaltender Crystal Springer.

Unlike their offense-powered previous meeting, this second meeting was a defensive grudge match. On Jan 9th, Harvard captured a 5-3 win over Northeastern on the road.

On Saturday, though, neutral zone play dominated the game. The classic Harvard offense of fast breaks and crashing the net was mysteriously absent as the quick-skating Huskies prevented the Harvard offense from getting very many good opportunities to score.

At the end of regulation, Northeastern had outshot the Crimson, 30 to 25.
