He allowed just three even strength goals in those three contests. Lackey stopped 29 of 31 shots in a 2-2 tie against BU on Tuesday, and made 22 saves and allowed just one even strength goal against Princeton.

On Saturday night at No. 6/6 Quinnipiac, Lackey was the star of the show, making a career high 46 saves to help Harvard earn a 2-1 win over the Bobcats. Lackey has allowed two goals or less in eight of his last nine starts. Harvard is 7-3-1 in its last 11 games overall, with Lackey starting all of those contests (7-3-1, 1.71 GAA, .941 Save %).
