ECAC Hockey Report, 1995 February 8

It was quite a weekend in the ECAC, as both Princeton and Cornell recorded two-game sweeps on the road. The big news was the Tigers' upsets of two of the top three teams in the league, Harvard on Friday by a 5-3 score, and 3-1 over Brown on Saturday. Brown also tied Yale 2-all Friday night, while Harvard took out their frustrations on Yale, 3-2, on Saturday.

Cornell's sweep was a little less impressive, with a 3-2 victory over Vermont and a 6-5 decision against hapless Dartmouth. Cornell's travel partner Colgate split their two contests in Northern New England, upending Dartmouth 5-1 and being blanked 7-0 by UVM.

Meanwhile in Northern New York, the Golden Knights of Clarkson took sole possesion of first place with a three-point weekend, defeating Union 4-2 and tying RPI at two apiece. Finally, St. Lawrence managed a split, skating to a 3-1 win over Renssalaer and being shut out 6-0 by Union.

Now to the standings, with seven games remaining for Harvard and Colgate and eight for all the rest:

Clarkson sits atop the ECAC with 21 points, followed by Brown and Harvard with 19. RPI holds onto the number four spot with 17 points, and Colgate remains in fifth with 15. Princeton moves up to sixth with 14 points, displacing Yale, who are now tied with Cornell in seventh place with 13. Vermont drops to number nine with 12 points, followed by Union with 11 and St. Lawrence with 10, as Dartmouth cements their hold on the cellar with a mere 6 points.

Next weekend, Cornell will try to duplicate Princeton's feat as they play host to arch-rival Harvard on Friday, followed by Brown on Saturday. In the other Central New York game, Brown visits Colgate on Friday. Meanwhile, RPI and Union travel to Northern New England to face off against Dartmouth and Vermont, while Princeton and Yale play host to St. Lawrence and Clarkson.
