Hockey Madness Day #2

Women: #3 Dartmouth 3, Brown 2

What it means:

Dartmouth wins the Ivy Title for the 3rd time in four years.

Dartmouth moves into sole posession of 3rd place in the ECAC, and with Colgate and Cornell left on the schedule shouldn’t be in danger of falling below that.

Dartmouth’s Frozen Four chances are still very much alive.

Men: Dartmouth 0, Harvard 4

What it means:

Dartmouth finishes 4th in the ECAC. Good enough for a bye, but disappointing because they could’ve finished 2nd with a win or 3rd with a tie.

For the 2nd time in 3 years, Dartmouth fails to win the Ivy Title after needing only a tie in their final Ivy League game to clinch at least a share or a win to claim it outright. 2 years ago they lost to Yale at home, this year they get whitewashed by Harvard in Cambridge.

Odds are it’ll be Dartmouth-RPI in the ECAC quarterfinals. RPI, as the 5th seed, will host 12-seeded Princeton next weekend. The odds of Princeton pulling off the upset are slim to none.

Dartmouth continues to struggle against Harvard, having gone 0-6-2 against them in their last 8 meetings. The last Dartmouth win was a 7-0 blowout in Hanover in the winter of 2001.

What happened:

Dartmouth outshot Harvard 33-19 after 2 periods of play, but trailed 4-0 anyway. The Harvard goalie stood on his head all night, and Dan Yacey ’05 was pulled just a night after getting his first career shutout.
