Huge win for men’s hockey

By defeating Clarkson 5-2 this evening, the Dartmouth men’s hockey team has clinched a first-round bye in the ECACHL playoffs. Further, with Cornell’s 2-0 loss at RPI, Dartmouth and Colgate are tied for first place, though Dartmouth holds the tiebreaker. A win tomorrow night could clinch the #1 seed in the playoffs. A tie, coupled with losses or ties by Cornell and Colgate, or a loss coupled with losses by the western New York duo could similarly clinch the top slot.
