PROVIDENCE, R.I. – It was an impressive offensive showing for Harvard men's hockey (1-2-2, 1-2-2 ECAC) as five different goal scorers helped the Crimson defeat Brown (1-4-1, 1-3-1 ECAC) at Meehan Auditorium in Providence, Rhode Island on Saturday (Nov. 10).

Harvard was led by Adam Fox and Jack Badini who both registered a goal and an assist on the evening while goaltender Michael Lackey made 23 saves on the night to earn the win in net.

Brown struck first, 18:09 into the first period, scoring on their second power play opportunity of the evening.

Sophomore Jack Donato opened the scoring for the Crimson at 2:42 of the second epriod, pushing the puck on a two-on-one and threading a wrist shot off the bottom of the crossbar and into the back of the net. Six minutes later, Lewis Zerter-Gossage picked up a loose puck in the offensive zone and moved it to Nathan Krusko who found Frederic Gregoire to give Harvard its first lead of the night.

A familiar defensive pairing extended the Crimson's lead 14:53 into the second as Fox fed Reilly Walsh for a one-timer on a Harvard power play to give Harvard a 3-1 lead.

Eight minutes into the third period, the Harvard power play struck again. This time first-year Baker Shore fed Badini at the top of the crease who buried a goal to give the Crimson a 4-1 lead. Two minutes later, Brown made it a two-goal game.

But with 1:24 to play while shorthanded, Adam Fox skated into the corner in Harvard's zone and found the open net at the other end of the ice to seal the win.
