The Harvard men’s hockey team took the first step toward advancing in the ECAC tournament when they downed Yale Friday at Ingalls Rink, 3-2, in the first game of the quarterfinals.
With the game tied for most of the third period, each team kept looking for a game-winning opportunity. With just two and a half minutes to go, Harvard got theirs on a 2-on-1 breakaway when forward Alexander Kerfoot ’17 passed to linemate Jimmy Vesey ’16, who slammed the winner home for his 26th goal of the season.
Now the two teams go at it again today at 7 p.m. If the Crimson win, they’re on to Lake Placid. If they lose, the third and deciding game will be Sunday.
