If ice hockey was a sport of two halves rather than three periods, Harvard men’s hockey would be coming out of the weekend with a win and tie. However, the team’s third period performance in both Sunday’s matinee against No. 1 Boston College and Friday evening’s game against No. 10 University of Massachusetts proved to be decisive, as Harvard fell to both opponents.
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.
