The hot sticks of the Harvard men’s hockey team froze over as the Crimson’s season ended this past weekend falling to the No. 12-seeded Brown Bears twice in the opening round of the ECAC tournament. Brown goaltender Mike Clemente amassed 80 saves in the two shutout wins, helping the Bears take down the No. 5-seeded Harvard Crimson 1-0 on Friday (March 6) and 2-0 on Saturday (March 7).
Before the double defeat, the Crimson (9-15-6) had a record 4-0-2 in the past six games — including a 4-2 win over No. 6 Cornell on Feb. 14 and a Feb. 28 3-2 victory over No. 6 Princeton.
While Harvard ends its season with a record of 9-16-6, juniors Alex Biega and Doug Rogers were both named to the Ivy League second teams, and the Crimson graduate just five players, retaining the team’s top seven point-scorers next season.
