By Kevin T. Chen, Crimson Staff Writer

Each Thursday, The Crimson will compile a series of unique statistics about Harvard's sports scene. Welcome to the Magic of Numbers—without the problem sets. We'll do the math for you.

NO TIME FOR A BREAK

34—Saves made by Harvard assistant captain goaltender Kyle Richter in last weekend’s 1-0 loss to Princeton.

8—National rank for the Crimson in scoring defense.

2.17—Number of goals allowed by Harvard per game. Despite its stellar defense, the Crimson is just 2-4 on the season.

ICED

7—National ranking for the Minnesota women’s hockey team. Harvard flies out to Minneapolis for a two-game series against the Golden Gophers this weekend.

8 — Number of total goals scored against No. 9/10 Dartmouth by the Crimson last weekend. In its two games against the Big Green, Harvard upset the favorites both times, 5-3 and 3-2, respectively.

14—Number of times Minnesota and Harvard have faced off, with the first coming in the 1997-98 season.

DOING SOMETHING WRIGHT
