Harvard-Yale in ECAC Playoffs

Best-of-3 Series Begins Friday

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Yale men's hockey team hosts Harvard this coming weekend at Ingalls Rink in a best-of-three ECAC first-round playoff series. The March 7-9 games are each 7 p.m. starts that can be seen on America One and heard live on WYBC-AM 1340.

The Bulldogs, coming off a 5-0 win at home over Rensselaer on Saturday, finished tied for fifth in the conference standings. The 11th place Crimson split their last regular season games at Colgate (2-1, W) and Cornell (3-2, L).

The ancient rivals have already played three times this season, including a 2-2 OT tie at New Haven in December, a 5-1 Yale win in January at Madison Square Garden and a 5-2 Eli victory in February at Boston.  

Tickets are available for all three games and can be purchased by calling (203) 432-1400 or on yalebulldogs.com.

Yale and Harvard last met in the conference playoffs in 2012 at Boston during a three-game series that included two overtimes. The Crimson won that meeting.
