After consecutive losses to No. 1 Boston University, No. 14 Yale, and No. 15 Boston College, the Crimson men’s hockey team snapped a three-game losing streak with a 3-2 decision against Colgate on Friday (Feb. 13) and a 4-2 shocker against the No. 5 Cornell Big Red on Saturday (Feb. 14).
Against Cornell, the Crimson scored a season-high four power-play goals, and sophomore goaltender Ryan Carroll held the Big Red to just two goals, tallying 42 saves in the win. His shutdown play earned him ECAC Goaltender of the Week honors this past Monday (Feb. 16). Harvard freshman Daniel Moriarty, who tallied the game-winner in Friday’s contest against Colgate, also garnered ECAC honors, as he was named the league’s Rookie of the Week.
Despite Harvard’s suffering an overall record of 7-14-4 (7-7-4 ECAC; 2-4-3 Ivy League) this season, the one bright spot for the Crimson has been the team’s play at home, touting a 7-3-1 record at Bright Hockey Center. Harvard is now tied for sixth place in the ECAC with 18 points.
The Crimson will attempt to ride this past weekend’s momentum when they travel to New York to face St. Lawrence on Friday (Feb. 20) and Clarkson on Saturday (Feb. 21).
