CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Playing in the Beanpot consolation game at Walter Brown Arena, Harvard women's hockey is set to take on host Boston University on Tuesday, Feb. 9 at 4:30 p.m.

The First Line
• Harvard is 17-2 all-time against Boston University in the Beanpot, and went unbeaten in the tournament series from 1980-2009.  A year ago, Harvard drew BU in the first round of the Beanpot and came away with a 9-2 victory.

Miye D'Oench and Sydney Daniels lead the Crimson attack with 27 and 18 points, respectively. Attackers on the top line, D'Oench and Daniels have each netted 11 goals.

• The Crimson defense ranks as one of the top in the country, as Harvard allows only 1.75 goals per game. Harvard has held 20 of 24 opponents to two goals or fewer with six shutouts on the season. Michelle Picard and Chelsea Ziadie have been consistent starters along the blue line.

Emerance Maschmeyer earned her second ECAC Goaltender of the Week Award Jan. 26 after earning her fourth shutout of the season vs. Dartmouth Jan. 23. Maschmeyer also tallied 36 saves on the week against No. 1/1 Boston College.

Three Cheers
Harvard is 9-0-1 in 2015-16 when scoring at least three goals, and is 31-1-1 since the start of last season when potting a trio of scores. The team last netted three against Yale on Saturday, Feb. 6 at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center.

That's High Praise
Senior Emerance Maschmeyer was named the ECAC Hockey Goaltender of the Week for Jan. 18-24. Maschmeyer earned her fourth shutout of the season, and 17th of her career, with 23 saves in a 2-0 win over Dartmouth Jan. 23. The senior captain also registered 36 saves against No. 1/1 Boston College on Tuesday, one off her season-best 37 set against Princeton Dec. 4. Maschmeyer anchors the country's seventh-best defense (1.46 goals-against average) and ranks third nationally with a .947 save percentage. The award was her second of the season, and seventh-career weekly award.
