All-Time Against Harvard
Quinnipiac is 4-7-2 in 13 games against Harvard, dating back to the first match-up between the two teams on Nov. 4, 2005. Quinnipiac won that game, 5-2 at the Northford Ice Pavilion, and failed to pick-up a W in the next six games against the Crimson (0-4-2). The Bobcats are undefeated against Harvard (3-0-2) all-time on their home ice, including a 2-0-2 mark at the TD Bank Sports Center. The two teams have traded wins in their last six meetings, which included Quinnipiac's only win at the Bright Hockey Center - a 7-4 victory in the second game of the ECAC Hockey Quarterfinals in 2008.

Scouting Harvard University
Harvard is currently 2-3-0 overall and in ECAC Hockey play following a 1-0 loss to Princeton last night. Last weekend, the Crimson defeated St. Lawrence, 4-2, before losing to Clarkson, 3-1. Kyle Richter has logged all but two minutes in goal for Harvard this season, posting a 2-3-0 mark with a .952 save percentage and a 1.61 goals-against average. Offensively, Alex Killorn leads Harvard with two goals and three assists while brothers Michael and Danny Biega have each accounted for a goal and two assists.

Filling The Pipes
Last weekend, Dartmouth scored an ECAC Hockey-best 13 goals in a weekend sweep of Clarkson and St. Lawrence. Hartzell, getting his second consecutive start, stopped everything the Big Green put on goal as he improved to 3-0-0 on the year. With the shutout, his goals-against average drops to 0.93 while his save percentage ascends to .967 on the year.

All Dun(bar)
Freshman John Dunbar was the latest Bobcat to get his first career goal with the Bobcats first goal against Dartmouth on Friday night. Dunbar, in 11 games, has tallied one goal and two assists.

For The Stat Hungry
Quinnipiac has never had its first three players to score multiple goals in a game do so in the same period of each respective game...until this season. Scott Zurevinski scored twice in the second period against Colgate, Kellen Jones scored twice in the third period against Holy Cross and Clay Harvey scored twice in the second period against Brown.

Really Impressive
Including Friday night's win against Dartmouth, Quinnipiac is 50-0-5 in its last 55 games in which it has led heading into the third period. It's last loss when leading after two periods came on March 17, 2007 against Clarkson in the ECAC Hockey Championship.

At The Bank
Quinnipiac is 41-23-7 (.621) in 71 games all-time at the TD Bank Sports Center.
