Harvard needs a pair of wins for a chance to advance to the ECAC Hockey tournament (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Hosting a pair of Ivy foes in a pivotal ECAC Hockey weekend, Harvard women's hockey welcomes Yale and Brown to the Bright-Landry Hockey Center for a pair of contests Feb. 17-18. The former will be broadcast on ESPN3, while the latter can be seen on NESN. Dropping the pucks at 6 p.m. and 3 p.m., respectively, both meetings can also be found on the Ivy League Digital Network.

The First Line
Lexie Laing and Sydney Daniels lead the Harvard offense with 18 and 14 points, with Daniels holding a team-high nine goals, including a hat trick earlier this season at Dartmouth, and Laing holding a Crimson-best 12 helpers. Daniels ranks 17th in program history with 57 career scores, while Laing has 61 career points.

• Harvard has faced 12 ranked opponents this season, six of them going to overtime. 15 of Harvard's 27 games have been decided by one goal or ties, with 10 going to extra time.

• College women's hockey's all-time winningest coach, Katey Stone became the nation's first head coach to reach 450 career victories on Saturday, Feb. 10. Harvard has tallied 11 Ivy titles, 14 Beanpot championships, seven ECAC Hockey crowns and one national championship under Stone's watch.

• Harvard tied Boston University in the Beanpot consolation, 6-6, led by multi-point outings from Laing, Daniels and Haley Mullins. Mullins netted a career-high two goals in the draw. 

The Final Act
With two games remaining in the ECAC Hockey schedule, Harvard must beat both Yale and Brown this weekend to have a chance at making the conference tournament. Additionally, the Crimson needs Rensselaer to drop its weekend contests with Princeton and Quinnipiac. A successful weekend would likely lead to a trip to Clarkson for the ECAC Tournament first round.

The Class of 2017
Harvard's class of 2017 has combined for 71 victories in their illustrious careers with the Crimson. The current group came to Harvard in 2013 and has been to two NCAA Tournaments, one Frozen Four and one national title game. The six-player senior class has captured two Ivy titles and one championship in the ECAC regular season and ECAC Tournament. They will be honored in a post-game ceremony Feb. 18.

Last Time Out
Harvard women's hockey outskated Union, 2-0, on Friday night, giving Katey Stone her 450th-career victory at the helm of the Crimson. Senior Briana Mastel and junior Haley Mullins scored for the visitors, while freshman Beth Larcom earned her first-career victory and shutout.

In its final regular season contest on the road, Harvard women's hockey was tripped up by Rensselaer, 4-1, on Saturday. Freshman Val Turgeon found the back of the net, while junior Lexie Laing and freshman Kat Hughes recorded assists.

Recap: Women's Hockey at Union
Feb 10, 2017

Syd The Kid
Senior Sydney Daniels has not had an issue putting up points against Yale or Brown in her career, potting four goals and six points against the Bulldogs and six scores versus the Bears.

Heading to OT
Harvard has set a new program record for overtime games with 10, surpassing the previous eight 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 234 saves over 537 minutes of action, including a career-high 36 against Boston University this season, notching a .918 save percentage and a 2.34 goals-against average. Her sister, junior forward Lexie Laing holds the team lead with 18 points on the season, netting six goals with 12 assists.

Lar-Keys to the Game
Freshman Beth Larcom earned her first-career victory and shutout between the pipes at Union Feb. 10, turning aside 12 shots to blank the Dutchwomen.

Scouting Yale
Yale is 10-13-4 on the season, including an 8-10-2 seventh-place mark in ECAC Hockey action. Eden Murray and Krista Yip-Chuck lead the team with 26 points apiece, while Phoebe Staenz holds a team-high 14 goals. Tera Hofmann has seen action in 20 games between the posts, holding a 2.42 goals-against average and .924 save percentage.

Scouting Brown
Brown is 5-22-0 on the year, and sits 11th in the ECAC with a 3-17-0 conference tally. Sam Donovan leads the Bears with nine goals and 19 points, while three other Brown skaters have eclipsed 10 points. Monica Elvin has appeared in 21 games in goal, notching a 4.07 goals-against average and .899 save percentage.

Home-Ice Advantage

Harvard is 26-12-5 at home since the start of 2014-15 and won 17 straight in Cambridge from March 1, 2014 to Feb. 10, 2015.
