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.

Before the season, Harvard men’s ice hockey head coach Ted Donato said that it would take time for the Crimson to establish an identity, especially on offense, with so many of its players experiencing college hockey for the first time. Three games into the season, the team is still looking for that identity, as well as its first victory, after a shootout loss to the Princeton Tigers and a blowout loss to the Quinnipiac Bobcats, the defending national champions.
