Harvard could host a first-round ECAC tournament series with a pair of wins in New York (Billie Weiss).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – With home ice in the ECAC Hockey tournament on the line, Harvard women's hockey treks to No. 10/10 Colgate and Cornell for the final weekend of regular season action. The Friday clash will be broadcast on Campus Insiders and while Saturday's can be viewed on the Ivy League Digital Network.

The First Line
• With a pair of wins this weekend, Harvard will guarantee itself a home series in the first round of the ECAC tournament. The Crimson can finish no lower than fifth in the conference picture.

Miye D'Oench and Sydney Daniels lead the Crimson attack with 32 and 24 points, respectively. Daniels holds the team lead with 15 goals while D'Oench holds the top mark in assists (19).

• Daniels has scored twice in four of the past seven games, and was named the ECAC Hockey Player of the Week Feb. 16. The junior has seven multi-goal games in her career.

• Harvard is one of six teams nationally to enter the weekend with at least a five-game unbeaten streak. The streak is Harvard's first of at least five games since Nov. 24.

• Harvard is 27-1-2 all-time against Colgate, and enters Friday winners of 14 in a row in the series.

Three Cheers
Harvard is 11-0-1 in 2015-16 when scoring at least three goals, and is 33-1-1 since the start of last season when potting a trio of scores. The team last netted three against Union on Saturday, Feb. 13 at Messa Rink.

That's High Praise
Following an explosive week offensively, junior forward Sydney Daniels was selected as the ECAC Hockey Player of the Week Feb. 16. Daniels tallied four goals and six points on the week, helping to lead Harvard to a 2-0-1 record. The Southwick, Massachusetts native kicked off the week Feb. 9 when she scored the game-tying and game-winning goals in the Beanpot consolation against Boston University, the latter coming with just 58 seconds remaining in regulation. Daniels followed the performance with a second two-goal outing against Union on Saturday, Feb. 13, netting the game-winner and tallying an unassisted, shorthanded goal to put an exclamation point on the victory.
