Men's Ice Hockey
The Harvard men’s hockey team punched its ticket to the NCAA tournament for the fourth time in the last seven years on Saturday with an upset 3-2 overtime victory over No. 6/6 Quinnipiac in the ECAC championship game.
As some of the world’s greatest athletes descended upon Beijing, China, for the Winter Olympics between Feb. 4 and Feb. 20, some of Harvard’s brightest stars were among them. Nick Abruzzese, Sean Farrell, Emerance Maschmeyer '16, Keely Moy, and Remi Drolet represented the Crimson in Beijing, with Maschmeyer claiming a gold medal for Canada.
On its final homestand of the regular season, the Harvard Men’s Ice Hockey team recorded a 4-3 win against the Princeton Tigers before defeating the No. 4 Quinnipiac Bobcats 1-0 on Senior Night at Bright-Landry Hockey Center. The victories clinched the Ivy League championship for the Crimson and secured a first-round bye for the ECAC playoffs.

The Harvard Men’s Hockey (12-7-2) team was sheltered from Friday’s hail by the Bright-Landry Hockey Center’s roof, as they took on fellow Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) member and Ivy League competitor Dartmouth (3-15-3). The Crimson pulled out the win, 3-1, earning its fourth straight victory.
Next Monday, the 7th, is the first Monday in the month of February. In the city of Boston, that means it's time for the Beanpot.

The 69th rendition of the event begins this Monday, with the Harvard Crimson taking on the Boston University Terriers at TD Garden at 5 p.m.
