Yale ties Har­vard in its home opener

New Haven Register (New Haven, CT) - - SPORTS - By Dan Nowak

NEW HAVEN — When it comes to the sea­son’s first home game, the Yale men’s hockey team pro­duced some ex­cit­ing mo­ments for their fans against arch-ri­val Har­vard with some solid de­fense, mo­ments of bril­liance on of­fense and a goal scored by each team 32 sec­onds apart.

The goalies weren’t too bad, ei­ther.

Joe Snively scored the Bull­dogs’ third goal 32 sec­onds af­ter the Crim­son took a lead off a pow­er­play goal and Corbin Kaczper­ski made 30 saves to lift 3 3 Yale to a 3-3 tie with Har­vard for the ECAC Hockey tie at In­galls Rink on Fri­day.

“I thought the way we re­sponded af­ter we took a penalty and then scored was en­cour­ag­ing for us,” Yale coach Keith Al­lain said. “There were six goals scored in the game but both goalies played well too. Corbin came through with some good saves for us.

“When it comes to the game, I thought we played bet­ter the last half of the game than we did in the first half.”

Yale moved 2-1-1 both over­all and in the ECAC and will host Dart­mouth Satur­day at 7 p.m.
