Game Notes: at Hartford

What to Know

  • Harvard enters the month of March still seeking its first victory of the season. The Crimson is coming off a deflating 11-10 double-overtime home loss to Holy Cross on Tuesday in a contest that was originally slated to take place in Worcester, Mass. The relocation was due to weather concerns around the Crusaders' campus.

  • The Crimson will look to continue its run of dominance over Hartford. Harvard is 8-1 all-time vs. the Hawks and has won eight straight in the series. The Crimson is one 10-9 overtime loss in 1997 away from having an unblemished record vs. Hartford.

  • Harvard is making its first trip to Hartford since 2008, which resulted in an 11-2 victory for the visitors. The Crimson is undefeated in three tries at Hartford (1998, 2001, 2008).

  • Harvard played host to Hartford last season and came away with a 14-10 decision. The Crimson scored four goals in three of the four quarters and posted two in the third frame. Kyle Anderson led the team with four goals, with Ryan Graff adding two goals and a team-high-tying three assists.

  • The Crimson is 26-10 all-time vs. current members of the America East. Harvard will face another America East member, Albany, on March 27, at Jordan Field.
