Eyeing Late-Season Run, Harvard Gears Up for ECAC and NCAA Playoffs

At a now-or-never point in the season, Harvard men’s ice hockey (5-16-4, 5-9-4 ECAC) must strive for near-perfect play. It came close to perfection this past weekend, notching a one-goal win over St. Lawrence but falling to Clarkson by the same margin. Except for a blowout loss to No. 1-ranked Boston College in the consolation round of the Beanpot last week, Harvard has kept it close against ranked teams over the past month.

After last weekend’s drubbing at the hands of Quinnipiac, Harvard men’s ice hockey head coach Ted Donato said that his team would need to play “markedly better” on the road this weekend if they wanted to be successful against Colgate and Cornell. With a 2-2 tie against Colgate on Friday and an enormous 3-2 victory over Cornell on Saturday at notoriously hostile Lynah Rink, the squad seems to have gotten the message this weekend, and may be starting to round into form.
