Harvard is coming off a 2-1 victory over Dartmouth (Billie Weiss).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Looking to build momentum over the final month of the regular season, Harvard women's hockey travels to Brown and Yale for a pair of Ivy League bouts Jan. 20-21. Both meetings will be broadcast on the Ivy League Digital Network, while the Yale game can also be found on ESPN3. 

The First Line
Lexie Laing and Sydney Daniels lead the Harvard offense with nine points each, with Daniels holding a team-high seven goals, including a hat trick earlier this season at Dartmouth. Daniels ranks 18th in program history with 55 career scores. 

• Harvard has faced nine ranked opponents in 17 games this season, four of them going to overtime. The Crimson recently tied No. 7/7 Colgate, 3-3, and No. 8/8 Quinnipiac, 2-2.

• Harvard is unbeaten in the last 31 meetings with Brown, and also enters the weekend winners of eight straight against the Elis. Harvard went 3-0-1 against the two squads in 2015-16.

• Harvard's netminders have eclipsed 40 saves on three occasions this season. Senior Molly Tissenbaum stopped a career-high 50 against Princeton and 42 at New Hampshire, while freshman Beth Larcom stoned 41 attempts in her debut at Colgate.

Last Time Out
Building momentum with an Ivy League triumph, Harvard women's hockey topped Dartmouth, 2-1, on Tuesday night at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center.

Sophomores Kate Hallett and Kaitlin Tse provided the pair of Crimson scores, while four Harvard (2-13-2, 2-8-2) players earned assists on the night. Earning her second win against the Big Green (5-13-0, 3-9-0) this season, senior Brianna Laing made 24 saves between the pipes.

Rookie of the Week
Proving difficult to beat in her first-career appearance for the Crimson, Beth Larcom was named the ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Week for Nov. 28-Dec. 4.

Larcom stopped 41 shots in her Harvard debut at No. 7/7 Colgate, earning a tie in a 3-3 decision in overtime. The 41 stops were the most for a Crimson netminder in her Harvard debut in program history. Hailing from Middletown, Rhode Island, Larcom made 10 saves in both the third period and overtime.

Home-Ice Advantage
The Bright-Landry Hockey Center has been one of the toughest venues in the country for opposing teams over the past few years, as Harvard has posted a 52-14-6 record at home over the past four-plus seasons. Harvard is 26-10-3 at home since the start of 2014-15 and won 17 straight in Cambridge from March 1, 2014 to Feb. 10, 2015.

National Recognition
Harvard was ranked for 79 consecutive weeks by the USCHO and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine, a span covering four seasons. The Crimson fell out of the Jan. 18/19 polls in 2016 for the first time since Oct. 15, 2012.
