CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Hitting the road for the final time in the regular season, Harvard women's hockey will travel to Union and Rensselaer for ECAC Hockey matchups Feb. 10-11. The games will be streamed on their respective websites.

The First Line
Lexie Laing and Sydney Daniels lead the Harvard offense with 17 and 14 points apiece, with Daniels holding a team-high nine goals, including a hat trick earlier this season at Dartmouth, and Laing holding a Crimson-best nine helpers. Daniels ranks 17th in program history with 57 career scores, while Laing has 60 career points.

• Harvard has faced 12 ranked opponents this season, six of them going to overtime. 15 of Harvard's 25 games have been decided by one goal or ties, with 10 going to extra time.

• College women's hockey's all-time winningest coach, Katey Stone is just one win from becoming the nation's first head coach to reach 450 career victories. Harvard has tallied 11 Ivy titles, 14 Beanpot championships, seven ECAC Hockey crowns and one national championship under Stone's watch.

• Harvard tied Boston University in the Beanpot consolation, 6-6, led by multi-point outings from Laing, Daniels and Haley Mullins. Mullins netted a career-high two goals in the draw.

Last Time Out
Skating in the highest-scoring Beanpot consolation since 1999, Harvard women's hockey played to a 6-6 tie in overtime with Boston University on Tuesday night at Matthews Arena.

Junior Haley Mullins scored two goals and had three points, while classmate Lexie Laing had one goal and three points to lead the Harvard offense. Senior Sydney Daniels tallied two points of her own, on a goal and assist, while junior Chelsea Ziadie and sophomore Kate Hallett also found the back of the net.

Heading to OT
Harvard has set a new program record for overtime games with 10, surpassing the previous eight set in 2005-06. At one point, the Crimson had gone to overtime five times in seven outings, the first such streak in program history.

Can I Get Your Number?
Harvard held Dartmouth's number in 2016-17, going 2-0 and holding the Big Green to just one goal in each matchup. After a 5-1 rout in Hanover, Harvard topped the Big Green, 2-1, in Cambridge after goals from Kate Hallett and Kaitlin Tse.

Her sister, junior forward Lexie Laing holds the team lead with 17 points on the season, netting six goals with 11 assists.

Hats on the Ice
Making her 99th career appearance, senior Sydney Daniels netted her second-career hat trick against Dartmouth Oct. 23. The left winger opened the scoring in the second period before adding a wraparound and a snipe in the third. She previously tallied a hat trick Jan. 6, 2015 against Connecticut. Daniels has 17 multi-point games in her career.

On Two Hands
Harvard potted a season-high six goals against Boston University in the Beanpot consolation in a 6-6 tie, marking the highest-scoring Beanpot consolation since 1999. The six-goal output was Harvard's most since Jan. 9, 2016, when it beat Colgate 6-2. 

Heating Up
