Harvard rallied in the overtime period to outshoot Northeastern seven to one but was unable to get the puck past Husky junior goaltender Erica Silva.
Both goalies posted impressive performances. Crimson netminder Crystal Springer turned away 30 shots while Silva stopped 31.
"This was a big game for Erica [Silva] to settle down against a high-power offense," said Northeastern Coach Heather Linstad.
Silva and Northeastern has come out of the rough month of January with a 2-3-1 record, allowing nine goals in a game against New Hampshire.
Emblematic of the defensive focus of the game, both scores came from blue-liners. On the power play with 4:00 minutes to go in the second period, freshman defenseman Jamie Hagerman fired a slapper from the center of the blue line. Silva reacted too late to the shot as Harvard forwards Shewchuk and junior Tara Dunn set up a screen for the shot.
Northeastern freshman defenseman Kim Greene tied the game in the third period with chip shot over the sprawling Springer.
