Harvard men’s hockey split a weekend homestand against Cornell and Colgate, falling to the former, 4-3, on Nov. 11, before responding with a 6-4 victory over the Raiders the next evening. Opening play on Nov. 11, Cornell rattled off 10 shots in the final period on its way to tallying two goals at the 14:56 and 17:29 marks, setting up the one-goal win. Against No. 17 Colgate, Crimson sophomore Paul Dufault managed two goals and an assist to pace Harvard’s six-consecutive-goal output. Most recently against crosstown rival Boston College this past Tuesday (Nov. 15), Harvard took an early 4-0 lead before hanging on for a 5-3 win. Senior goalie John Daigneau made a career-high 36 saves in the win – the Cambridge squad’s first in Chestnut Hill since 1979. Ranked No. 19, the men (4-2-0; 3-2-0 ECACHL) return to Bright Hockey Center for three straight contests beginning Friday (Nov. 18) against Yale.In first-period action against Cornell, Harvard senior forward Charlie Johnson (left) takes the puck out of the Crimson zone while under pressure from Cornell’s Mark McCutcheon.- Andrew Brooks
