Yale ties Harvard in its home opener
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.
