Harvard is 5-4-2 overall, 2-3-2 in the ECAC.
Harvardís defense sprang a few leaks early in the season, as they started off with a 7-6 loss to Dartmouth, a 5-3 loss to Quinnipiac, and a 4-4 tie with Princeton. The results of their last four games would seem to indicate that the Crimson had patched those leaks, as they gave up a total of only 5 goals in those four games, including victories over Colgate and Bentley and a split of two games with Cornell.
RPI, of course, has struggled to score goals. The four goals they scored in two games in the Catamount Cup this weekend seems like an offensive explosion compared to most of the season. Going up against a defense thatís been playing to a 1.25 GAA over its last four games sounds like the last thing RPI needs. If there is a note of optimism to be sounded for RPI fans, it may lie in the fact that Harvardís most recent game was played December 4 (they had an exhibition game scheduled against Team China this evening [Dec. 29], but it was cancelled). If you canít cool off a hot goalie any other way, maybe a month of enforced idleness will do it.
Armyís overall record is about as average as it is possible to be, 8 wins, 8 losses, and 1 tie, with 49 goals scored and 49 goals allowed. They are currently playing in the Ledyard Bank tournament in Hanover, where they lost to Dartmouth this evening, 5-2, and will play Brown tomorrow afternoon. The Black Knights split two games in each of the previous four weekends that they played, going 1-1 against Sacred Heart, Bentley, Niagara, and Canisius. Up to now, they have played only two games against ECAC opponents and have not fared well, as in addition to tonightís loss they also lost by three goals to Union.
