Harvard has faced 10 ranked opponents in 2016-17 (Billie Weiss).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Welcoming a pair of ranked opponents to Cambridge during Headway Foundation concussion awareness weekend, Harvard women's hockey will take on No. 5/5 St. Lawrence and No. 3/3 Clarkson Feb. 3-4 at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center. Dropping puck at 3:30 and 3 p.m., respectively, both games will be shown on the Ivy League Digital Network.

The First Line
Sydney Daniels and Lexie Laing lead the Harvard offense with 12 points apiece, with Daniels holding a team-high eight goals, including a hat trick earlier this season at Dartmouth. Daniels ranks 18th in program history with 56 career scores, while Laing has 55 career points.

• Harvard has faced 10 ranked opponents this season, five of them going to overtime. 12 of Harvard's 22 games have been decided by one goal or ties.

• 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 went 1-0-1 against the North Country duo in Cambridge a year ago, and controls the all-time series with both squads.

Last Time Out
Skating in the first round of the 39th annual Beanpot, at historic Matthews Arena, Harvard women's hockey fell to Northeastern, 4-1. The game coincided with the induction of John Dooley to the Beanpot Hall of Fame.

Junior Lexie Laing tallied her fifth goal of the season in the second frame, while senior Natasha Rachlin and freshman Kat Hughes earned assists on the play. Sydney Daniels contributed a game-high six shots against the Huskies. Senior Molly Tissenbaum registered 30 saves, including 17 in the second period.

Recap: Women's Hockey at Northeastern

Syd The Kid

Heading to OT
Harvard has matched the program record for overtime games with eight, originally 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.

Laing Down the Law
Senior goaltender Brianna Laing has tallied a career-high 209 saves over 478 minutes of action, including a career-high 36 against Boston University this season, notching a .917 save percentage and a 2.38 goals-against average. Her sister, junior forward Lexie Laing holds the team lead with 12 points on the season, netting five goals with seven 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 16 multi-point games in her career.

IIHF Hall of Famer
Her fifth hall of fame induction in two years, former Harvard star Angela Ruggiero has been inducted to the IIHF Hall of Fame. She is one of three Harvard alumni to earn the honor, joining Bill Cleary and Ben Smith. 

From the Point
When a defenseman scored a goal for Harvard in 2015-16, the Crimson was unbeaten at 6-0-0. Senior Briana Mastel led all blue-line skaters with three goals a year ago. Since the start of the 2013-14 season, Harvard has posted a 34-6-1 record when a defenseman beats the goaltender.

Scouting St. Lawrence
St. Lawrence is 21-3 2 on the season, including a 13-2-1 mark in the ECAC. The Saints have three players ranked in the top-10 nationaly in scoring, led by Kennedy Marchment's 1.73 points per game (16-29-45). Between the pipes, Grace Harrison holds a 1.60 goals-against average and seven shutouts.

Scouting Clarkson
Clarkson is 20-4-4 on the season, including a 14-1-1 mark in ECAC Hockey action. Cayley Mercer leads the Clarkson offense with 19 goals and 40 points, while Genevieve Bannon has dished 24 assists. Between the posts, Shea Tiley holds a 1.77 goals-against average and .922 save percentage.

The Main Event
Harvard has advanced to the Beanpot championship 28 times- more than any of the other three schools. Harvard boasts an all-time record of 48-29 at the Beanpot. Harvard will face Boston University in the Beanpot consolation Feb. 7.

Stopping 50
Senior netminder Molly Tissenbaum made a career-best 50 saves against Princeton Nov. 11, including back-to-back periods with at least 20 stops. Tissenbaum and the Crimson defense went 8-for-8 on the penalty kill, with Tissenbaum making 18 saves during the man-down span.

2.              57            Cheryl Tate (2/12/82 vs. NE)
3.              51            Emerance Maschmeyer (12/7/13 vs. BC)

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.
