RPI Beats Harvard, Loses Squeaker to Brown

The Rensselaer Men's Hockey Team got back to regular season ECAC action this weekend and split a pair of games. On Friday night, the Engineers ran into a hot goalie by the name of Yann Danis. Danis made 30 saves to shut earn a 1-0 shutout for Brown University.

Saturday, RPI decisively defeated Harvard University 4-1. USCHO said that Harvard was as frustrated on Saturday night as RPI was on Friday, mustering only 22 shots against winning goaltender Nathan Marsters. The Engineers spread the scoring around with Conrad Barnes and Kirk MacDonald tallying a goal and an assist, Kevin Croxton and Tommy Green scoring one goal, and Cody Wojdyla and Scott Basiuk scoring one assist each.

This is the first time that Rensselaer has beaten Harvard in Troy in over four years.

Matt Graves of the Times Union characterized the Harvard game as a hit fest and "perhaps {RPI's} best overall effort of the season...." Nathan Marsters reportedly said:

I told the guys that was the most physical I've ever seen our team play in the four years I've been here. (Harvard was) banging, too. There were bodies all over the place.

With the victory, Rensselaer broke a three-game losing streak, and raised its overall record to 9-8-2, 4-3-1 in the ECAC. Next weekend is a home-and-home series with Union College.
