LIVE: Men's Hockey Duels Brown at Home

Cam He Do It?
The Crimson returns home to square off against Brown. Backup Cameron Gornet will start in net with starter Michael Lackey sidelined due to injury.
The Harvard men's hockey team boasts a 9-4-1 record since the new year and has mounted a strong case for itself in the national conversation. An NCAA-leading powerplay (31.8%), stingy team defense, and perhaps most of all, the play of senior net-minder Michael Lackey (14-6-3, 2.23 GAA, .920 SV%) have propelled the No. 17/15 Crimson to these heights.

But last Saturday at then-No. 10/9 Clarkson, Lackey sustained a lower-body injury from a collision with junior defenseman Adam Fox and remains day-to-day. Harvard (14-8-3, 10-6-2 ECAC) will thus turn to junior Cameron Gornet between the pipes on Friday night against Brown (10-10-5, 7-6-5), hoping that a change behind the mask will not derail the team's impressive stretch of hockey.

The Bears have put together a similarly solid stint, having logged victories over formidable confernece foes Union, Princeton, and Quinnipiac in recent weeks. The Crimson is eyeing a four-point weekend in order to keep its at-large NCAA Tournament hopes alive, and this feat starts tonight with a win against Brown.
