congrats H.. great season, well done indeed.
gravy from here on out, go get 'em!
Congrats on the cup, well deserved. Good luck in the Regional
Congrats one the cup!!! An amazing season so far, for a very impressive team.
Good luck in the regionals, we'll see you at the frozen four !
Let's go Union !
ECAC Regular season champion : 2010-11, 2011-12, 2013-14, 2016-17
ECAC Tournament champion : 2012, 2013, 2014
NCAA champion : 2014
A BIG Green congrats on the Whitelaw; quite an impressive feat going through the quality teams in the ECAC but in the end the best team survived and won. You guys are awesome from top to bottom with little if no weaknesses O, D, and ST (maybe PK is not as strong as the others). That second line was tremendous and fun to watch. I am still scratching my head how the Big Green split with you! LOL! Good Luck in the tourney and hopefully we will see you in Chicago!
Some leftover thoughts from last night's championship:
1. I've been hard on Madsen for the past two seasons feeling like he hasn't stolen or won us games with his goaltending. That stops now. He deserved the MVP for the tournament as he absolutely stonewalled Cornell at key junctures when the Crimson were running around in their own end. This was the weekend we've been waiting for from him and it can only help him going into next weekend.
2. Michael Floodstrand scored his first goal of the season last night but he has been a buzzsaw for the past few weeks. He has taken his skating to another level and is using his size and physicality to create chances for the fourth line. He got rewarded with a fortunate bounce but if he keeps this up, he'll be a factor in the NCAAs.
3. Speaking of bounces, Harvard got a few this weekend while the Big Red have to be talking to themselves about the missed opportunities in close. They had open looks at Madsen several times and the puck either eluded their sticks or they just misfired. Either way, it's pays to be good and lucky. Sometimes you need both to win.
4. Classy moment in the post game interview when Teddy recognized Paul Pearl for his work with the PP and the D. Two coaches who should be highly sought after once the season concludes are Pearl and Norm Bazin. Some NHL team will be calling to inquire about Bazin and Pearl should get HC offers especially if Harvard goes to the Frozen Four. Would hate to lose Pearl but he deserves the opportunity if he wants it.
Confirmed: Harvard will be playing in Providence.
An interesting regional in Providence with Harvard facing the Friars and Western Michigan taking on Air Force. Didn't expect to see WM in this regional but hey, we're staying home and that's a good thing!
I-95 to Dunkin Donuts Ctr, here we come!!!
I just bought my tickets for Friday.
I also emailed the Harvard Club of Rhode Island to see if they (spur them to) host a Harvard get together before the game. The contact info is here fyi: http://hcrhodeisland.clubs.harvard.edu/contact.html (Note you will have to delete an extra n from the third email address).

So what can we expect from Providence?
Ooops, and I just looked at all the "Quick Look" articles recently posted on USCHO, one for each of the 4 Regionals. Three of them feature the #1 seed team in the title and photograph. And then there is the East Regional and home team (no not host) Providence (the team featured in title, photo, and most of the story). Written by the ECAC Columnist, mind you. If you read down a ways to the 8th paragraph, he does mention a few things about Harvard.
I think by Friday evening the focus may change.

Good luck from a BC fan.

If you look carefully at this week's polls, Harvard came very close to capturing #1 in both cases. And I am so glad that did not happen!
Looking at the next four games as just a tough road trip, because when this Crimson team shows up and is on its game, it is nearly unbeatable. Hoping for a strong start in front of a hostile home crowd on Friday afternoon, and we will be there cheering them on.
