Game Notes: at Dartmouth

What to Know

  • The Crimson is coming off a thrilling triple-overtime road victory at Boston University on Tuesday night. Harvard found itself trailing by five goals with under four minutes left in the third quarter before going on a 6-0 run to get back in the game. BU scored with one second left in the fourth to force overtime and Nigel Andrews sent the Crimson back to Cambridge with a win after he scored with 1:45 remaining in the third OT period.

  • Dartmouth has split its last four games, alternating between wins and losses. More recently, the Big Green suffered a 15-8 road loss at St. John's Tuesday afternoon. In Dartmouth's two victories, it scored 11 goals in each game. In its four defeats, the Big Green were held to single-digit goal totals.

  • The Crimson earned the victory over the Terriers with a combination of great goalie play, hustle on ground balls and face-off wins. Harvard received 19 saves, including a huge stop on the possession before the Crimson scored the game-winner, from Kyle Mullin, held an advantage in ground balls (50-37), and was 12-for-12 on face-offs from the fourth quarter on. In fact, Harvard was 9-for-9 in face-offs in the fourth quarter alone.

  • Mullin, who has been outstanding all season, has 60 stops in his last three games, including two straight outings with 19 saves. The sophomore helped keep Harvard close and weather the early storm that saw Boston University jump out to a 9-4 lead. Mullin allowed just two goals, while making 10 saves, in the final 29:01.

  • Harvard has won three consecutive games over Dartmouth, including a 14-7 road decision back in 2017. The Crimson has won two of the last three games in Hanover.
