AHL Game Day: 3-8-15 Crunch at Senators

Missing Vladdy N.

SYR-2
BNG-4

Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 4 goals on 34 shots for the loss.

First Period
SYR Gourde, (22) (Ashton, Kunyk), 8:18 (PP)
BNG Wideman, (15) (Robinson, McCormick), 13:02

Second Period
BNG Johnson, (4) (Camper, Prince), 15:50 (PP)

Third Period
BNG Schneider, (19) (D. Grant, Mullen), 11:30 (SH)
BNG D. Grant, (18) (Mullen, Dzingel), 15:16 (PP)
SYR Richard, (10) , 18:05 (PP)

Without Vladislav Namestnikov, the Crunch just seem to be a middle-of-the-road team at best. He and Marchessault are the straws that stir the drink for Syracuse, and they just can't seem to score with one of them out of the lineup.

NCAA Game Night: 3-7-15

Brown Bears 3 @ No. 19 Harvard Crimson 4
ECAC First Round
Harvard wins best-of-3 series, 2-0

F Brian Hart, HAR: 1-0-1, +2, 2 PIM, 7 SOG
Season totals: 30 GP, 7-8-15, +3, 19 PIM
2013-2014 totals: 30 GP, 7-8-15, -8, 20 PIM

Harvard eliminated the Bears from the ECAC tournament with a 4-3 win Saturday. Harvard had a 4-2 lead entering the third period and held on. Hart’s seventh goal of the season in his 30th game matches his totals from last year identically. On Saturday he had the puck behind the Brown net and passed the puck off the back of the net back to himself though no one was around him. The Brown goalie thought he was reversing direction and moved to his right so Hart swung around to the goalie's left and slid the puck into an open net. Harvard will play rival Yale in the ECAC quarterfinals.

2013-2014 totals: 34 GP, 7-11-18, +7, 10 PIM
