No. 2 W. Hockey Faces Dartmouth

The stage is set for a Cinderella run, but Harvard may be the victim en route to Dartmouth's fairy tale ending.

The No. 2 Harvard women's hockey team (21-4-3, 17-4-3 ECAC) rolled to an easy 7-3 victory over St. Lawrence (18-15-1, 11-12-1) last Saturday in the ECAC quarterfinals.

That's the good news.


Here's the bad news.

The Crimson's road to a second straight National Championship runs through Dartmouth.

Harvard hasn't beaten the No. 6 Big Green (19-10-0, 17-7-0) all season, and has lost twice.

In Harvard's home opener, Dartmouth ended the Crimson's 33-game winning streak with a 5-4 OT victory, which was the same night the 1999 AWCHA national championship banner was raised to the rafters.

The Big Green's second win, a 5-3 trouncing in mid-February, was a wake-up call for the Crimson before the Beanpot finals.
