All-Time Against Harvard
Quinnipiac is 4-7-2 in 13 games against Harvard, dating back to
the first match-up between the two teams on Nov. 4, 2005.
Quinnipiac won that game, 5-2 at the Northford Ice Pavilion, and
failed to pick-up a W in the next six games against the Crimson
(0-4-2). The Bobcats are undefeated against Harvard (3-0-2)
all-time on their home ice, including a 2-0-2 mark at the TD Bank
Sports Center. The two teams have traded wins in their last six
meetings, which included Quinnipiac's only win at the Bright Hockey
Center - a 7-4 victory in the second game of the ECAC Hockey
Quarterfinals in 2008.
Scouting Harvard University
Harvard is currently 2-3-0 overall and in ECAC Hockey play
following a 1-0 loss to Princeton last night. Last weekend, the
Crimson defeated St. Lawrence, 4-2, before losing to Clarkson, 3-1.
Kyle Richter has logged all but two minutes in goal for Harvard
this season, posting a 2-3-0 mark with a .952 save percentage and a
1.61 goals-against average. Offensively, Alex Killorn leads Harvard
with two goals and three assists while brothers Michael and Danny
Biega have each accounted for a goal and two assists.
Filling The Pipes
Last weekend, Dartmouth scored an ECAC Hockey-best 13 goals in a
weekend sweep of Clarkson and St. Lawrence. Hartzell, getting his
second consecutive start, stopped everything the Big Green put on
goal as he improved to 3-0-0 on the year. With the shutout, his
goals-against average drops to 0.93 while his save percentage
ascends to .967 on the year.
Freshman John Dunbar was the latest Bobcat to get his first career
goal with the Bobcats first goal against Dartmouth on Friday night.
Dunbar, in 11 games, has tallied one goal and two assists.
For The Stat Hungry
Quinnipiac has never had its first three players to score multiple
goals in a game do so in the same period of each respective
game...until this season. Scott Zurevinski scored twice in the
second period against Colgate, Kellen Jones scored twice in the
third period against Holy Cross and Clay Harvey scored twice in the
second period against Brown.
Including Friday night's win against Dartmouth, Quinnipiac is
50-0-5 in its last 55 games in which it has led heading into the
third period. It's last loss when leading after two periods came on
March 17, 2007 against Clarkson in the ECAC Hockey
