Crimson hockey tourney bound

1 min read

Talk about a turnaround. After dropping seven of their final 10 regular season games, the Harvard men’s hockey team’s postseason hopes weren’t exactly sky high. Yet with a most unusual three game win streak under their belt: all OT wins – against Brown, Clarkson, and Ivy Champion Cornell – the Crimson suddenly finds itself thrust into the thick of the 2002 NCAA Tournament. Beating Cornell in double overtime 4-3 on Saturday, March 16, in Lake Placid, N.Y., the Crimson extended its very own March madness by capturing its sixth ECAC title, its first since 1994, while receiving an automatic bid to the NCAA regionals. Harvard, seeded No. 6, will take on the No. 3 seeded Black Bears of the University of Maine this Saturday, March 23, at noon, at the Worcester Centrum. The winner will face off against No. 2 Boston University on Sunday, March 24.
