Princeton Travels To Dartmouth, Harvard For Last Regular Season Weekend

Princeton hockey travels to Dartmouth and Harvard for the last weekend of the regular season.

The Tigers (4-19-3, 2-16-2 ECAC) are locked into the last spot of the ECAC, but their play this weekend could determine where they end up for the first round of the tournament. The Big Green (13-10-4, 10-8-2 ECAC) are sixth, but just a point out of fourth. Meanwhile the Crimson (10-7-3, 14-10-3 ECAC) are tied for fourth.

These teams last met in December, when Princeton played in two close games. Harvard won 4-3, while Dartmouth earned the 4-2 victory. Continue reading Princeton Travels To Dartmouth, Harvard For Last Regular Season Weekend

Princeton Ends Home Slate With Loss To Yale

PRINCETON, N.J. – Princeton held the lead over Yale for less than three minutes, but the Bulldogs (16-7-4, 11-6-3 ECAC) responded with three straight goals to take a 3-2 lead.

A couple turnovers helped the Bulldogs, who  added three more goals – including an empty-net tally – to take a 6-2 victory over the Tigers (4-19-3, 2-16-2 ECAC).

“It’s been a learning process and today I thought that just looking back at the goals, we lost the game,” Princeton coach Ron Fogarty said. “We gave Yale opportunities to get to the net quicker before we got coverage reestablished, lost some battles and chalk that one up to us losing the game. Not Yale winning.

“We lost the game for sure.” Continue reading Princeton Ends Home Slate With Loss To Yale

Switch To Forward Pays Off For Kevin Liss

PRINCETON, N.J. – Kevin Liss has battled injuries throughout his three years at Princeton. When he returned this season, the Tigers already had set defensive pairs. Which injuries to the forwards, there were spots to compete for up front.

So Princeton coach Ron Fogarty turned Liss into a forward.

“It was definitely a big adjustment,” Liss said. “I’ve had a rough go of it the last few years with injures, so I was just coming back and that’s kind of where I fit in the lineup. It’s definitely fun, it’s a lot to learn but it’s very exciting and I love it so far.” Continue reading Switch To Forward Pays Off For Kevin Liss

Second Period Positional Mistakes Lead To Loss Against Brown

PRINCETON, N.J. – In the third period, down by three goals with less than five minutes left, Princeton was pressing.

But it was too late for the Tigers (4-18-3, 2-15-2 ECAC), who fell 4-1 to the Bears (8-17-1, 5-13-1 ECAC) on Friday night.

“You pull a goaltender, then you see an effort level go up. Our guys are protecting an inanimate object harder than they protect Colton Phinney, and that’s what’s discouraging,” Princeton coach Ron Fogarty said.

“They’re embarrassed if someone gets an empty net goal. You should be embarrassed if someone gets a shot on Colton Phinney.” Continue reading Second Period Positional Mistakes Lead To Loss Against Brown
