Cornell scores late third period goal to force 1-1 tie with Harvard

After avenging its only loss of the season by beating Dartmouth on Friday, No. 1 Cornell men’s hockey returned to Lynah Rink on Saturday to face its biggest rival, Harvard.

Cornell came into the game riding a seven-game unbeaten streak and had only one loss to its name. Meanwhile, the Crimson, which started the year with a perfect 6-0 record, entered the contest with a measly 3-6-3 mark in its last 12 games.


While it seemed like both teams were trending in opposite directions, the Red and the Crimson battled in a close contest. Harvard first drew blood late in the game, but sophomore forward Michael Regush forced a 1-1 draw with a strike on the power play.

The first goal wasn’t scored until there was only 4:05 left on the clock. After relentlessly pressuring junior goaltender Matt Galajda, the Crimson finally broke through as freshman Jack Drury’s shot from the slot found the back of the net.
