The Quinnipiac men's ice hockey team will look to bounce back from a 5-4 loss at Dartmouth on Friday night when it travels to Cambridge, Mass. to take on Harvard in an ECAC Hockey game at the Bright Hockey Center at 7 p.m. 

First-year Bobcat Matthew Peca (Petawawa, Albert) had an assist to extend his point streak to nine games, passing Bryan Leitch's freshman record of eight games in 2006-07. Kellen Jones (Montrose, British Columbia) had a goal and two assists while Spencer Heichman (Yorba Linda, Calif.), John Dunbar (Calgary, Alberta) and Loren Barron (Glendora, Calif.) also scored for the Bobcats. The Bobcats were 2-for-2 on the power play, while killing all three of Dartmouth's power-play on the night. 

Bill Schweizer and Chris Kotsopoulos will have the call from Bright Hockey Center on the flagship station of Quinnipiac University, AM 1220 WQUN. Live video and statistics will be made available by Harvard University at GoCrimson.com.

Alex Fallstrom picked up a pair of assists while goalie Steve Michalek stopped 34 shots in goal. 

Last Year Against Harvard
Quinnipiac pulled the season sweep against the Crimson for the first time in program history with a win at the TD Bank Sports Center, 5-4 on Nov. 20, before defeating Harvard on its home ice, 3-1 on Dec. 8. Ben Arnt scored twice in the first match-up, including the game-winner in the third period to break a 4-4 tie. In the second game of the season series, Clay Harvey, Mike Glaicar and Jeremy Langlois found the back of the net to lead the Bobcats.
