Bulldogs Blitz Crimson Under Bright Lights On Broadway


=====================================================================
Harvard University right wing KYLE CRISCUOLO (11), the 21-year-old sophomore from Southampton, New Jersey, who is the second-leading scorer for the Crimson with eight goals in 16 NCAA games this season, tries his luck from behind the goal line with a backhander on Yale University backstop ALEX LYON, the 21-year-old freshman from Baudette, Minnesota, who has established himself as the Bulldogs first choice between the posts this term, during the ECAC Conference match-up of historical Ivy League adversaries at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
=====================================================================

Three goals scored inside the first six minutes of the second period, including a stunning pair netted within twenty-six seconds of one another, and suffocating defensive work the rest of the way enabled the reigning NCAA national champions to prevail at the World’s Most Famous Arena as YALE outscored traditional arch-rival HARVARD 5-1 in the 239th installment of what has been dubbed the “RIVALRY ON ICE”.

Fitting enough for such a high profile match featuring two iconic Ivy League powerhouses (at least as far as the academic world is concerned) that it was, indeed, an ice hockey player appropriately named CODY LEARNED whose two goals certainly proved to be most pivotal for the Yale Bulldogs in the contest played before the noteworthy crowd of 15,524 paying customers at Madison Sqaure Garden in New York City.

Canadian legionnaire RAPHAEL GIRARD had been sensational in stopping 52 shots as the Crimson held their eternal enemy to a 2-2 tie the last time the two fierce foes had faced off at the unique Yale Whale only a little more than a month ago. And the 22-year-old senior goaltender imported from St. Hyacinthe in Quebec had done well to keep out a baker’s dozen efforts in the first twenty minutes of play on Broadway, as well. But a lethal pair of strikes from the ambitious Learned sandwiched around a goal from Bulldogs defenseman GUS YOUNG, the 22-year-old senior from Dedham, Massachusetts, who was selected by the Colorado Avalanche in the seventh round (# 184 overall) of the 2009 National Hockey League Draft, forced the Harvard starter to the bench rather early in the middle frame.

Now, Learned made just eight appearances for the would-be NCAA national champions as a 21-year-old freshman coming out of Amherst, New Hampshire, last season and had skated in only eight of Yale’s first fourteen games this term heading into this nationally broadcast match with Harvard on Broadway. But two goals for the blue-shirted team at Madison Square Garden not only doubled Learned’s career total for the Bulldogs, it also made certain that the Crimson had been effectively schooled in New York City. And so, yet again, truth has shown itself to be stranger than fiction, if only in the wonderful world of Ivy League ice hockey.

Ingalls Rink in New Haven about a month ago on account of injury, carries the puck against arch-rival Harvard University during the 239th edition of the so-called “Rivalry On Ice” at the world famous Madison Square Garden in New York City.

NOTES — The designation “New Haven, CT” indicates the Yale – Harvard game was contested at the NEW HAVEN VETERANS MEMORIAL COLISEUM, which was constructed well after the unique YALE WHALE (DAVID S. INGALLS RINK) and is considered to be a ‘neutral’ site for simplistic purposes here. Similarly, the designation “Boston, MA” indicates that the Crimson and Bulldogs skated in Beantown at the original BOSTON GARDEN with one notable exception. The Harvard – Yale game in February of 1979 was hosted by the WALTER BROWN ARENA on the campus of Boston University.

Harvard and Yale have actually engaged at a few different arenas in different parts of New York City. The inaugural Crimson – Bulldogs ice hockey match was, of course, played at the historical ST. NICHOLAS RINK (only the second indoor arena in the entire United States to ever use mechanically frozen ice for its surface) in Manhattan. The two Ivy League schools also faced-off against one another at the old BROOKLYN ICE PALACE in February of 1919 before meeting for very first time at the world famous MADISON SQUARE GARDEN on February 27, 1926.

Union College Canadian legionnaire ELI LICHTENWALD (12), the sizable freshman (6’6″ 235 lbs) from Saskatoon Saskatchewan who has totaled thirteen points (seven goals) in his first eleven NCAA contests, outpaces countryman KELLEN JONES (15) of Quinnipiac University, the undersized (5’9″ 165 lbs) senior center who was chosen in the seventh round (# 202 overall) of the 2010 National Hockey League Draft by the Edmonton Oilers, and prepares to close out this pivotal ECAC Conference clash by scoring into the empty net at the Frank L. Messa Rink in Schenectady, New York, on December 7, 2013.

==========================================================================

Half of the twelve ECAC Conference squads will be back in action the first weekend after Christmas.

Ivy Leaguers Cornell and Princeton are both migrating south to participate in the 14th annual FLORIDA HOCKEY CLASSIC, a tournament which is always held in in the little southwestern town of Estero (total population of roughly 18,000 people) at the Germain Arena (official capacity for 7,082 spectators), the regular rink of the East Coast Hockey League’s Florida Everblades. Another Ivy League institution, Dartmouth College, will be hosting its traditional LEDYARD NATIONAL BANK CLASSIC holiday gathering which will include the United States Air Force Academy, Northeastern University as well as Providence College. Finally, as far as the Ivys are concerned, the defending NCAA national champions from Yale will host visiting Holy Cross in a non-conference affair.

Quinnipiac University will be taking part in the almost all-Connecticut tournament otherwise known as the UCONN HOCKEY CLASSIC while Clarkson University from northern upstate New York is making the trip east into Vermont and will skate at the 17th installment of the CATAMOUNT CUP.

It should be remembered that Diebold, who made just seven appearances (3.22 avg, .873 svpct) as a sophomore during the 2012/13 campaign, had made a total of just 17 career NCAA appearances (3.22 avg, .889 svpct) for the Engineers coming into this current season.

Harvard Hold Yale In 238th Game


==================================================
The Crimson’s Canadian legionnaire RAPHAEL GIRARD (30), the undrafted senior goaltender from St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, who was destined to make an eye-opening 52 saves in this particular contest, keeps close watch on Bulldogs left wing MICHAEL DOHERTY (24), the productive freshman from Reading, Massachusetts, who has already notched three goals and nine points in his first twelve NCAA contests, during the 238th all-time meeting between legendary arch-rivals Harvard University and Yale University.
==================================================

The Crimson senior netminder making his final appearance in front of a sellout crowd on the home ice of his school’s ultimate adversary did all he could to engineer an enormous upset on the date of a most historic anniversary in American history but an overwhelming assualt in the final period by the defending NCAA national champions ensured that the 238th all-time meeting between traditional arch-rivals HARVARD and YALE would only produce a hard-fought 2-2 draw to be recorded in the ECAC Conference standings.

Harvard University are capably led by tenth-year head coach TED DONATO, the former Crimson player who was voted the Tournament Most Valuable Player when Harvard won the NCAA national championship in 1989 and later went on the skate for the United States at the 1992 Winter Olympic Games as well as in 796 National Hockey League games (150 go, 347 pts), mostly for the Boston Bruins, over the course of a thirteen-year professional career. The Crimson are currently rebuilding, as evidenced by the loss of three of Harvard’s four top goal-scorers from last season, and have gotten off to a bit of a slow start with only four wins from their first dozen matches to begin this term, as well. Neverthless, on the 72nd anniversary of Pearl Harbor, Donato was hoping to lead his troops into New Haven and produce an upsetting result in the belly of the unique Yale Whale.

And, after nearly thirty minutes of scoreless hockey, it was Harvard, in fact, who even managed to strike twice and take a 2-0 lead into the second intermission at the David S. Ingalls Rink. Canadian legionnaire ALEX KERFOOT, the promising 19-year-old freshman from West Vancouver, British Columbia, who was fifth round pick (# 150 overall) at the 2012 NHL Draft by the New Jersey Devils, broke the deadlock with a power play goal almost nine minutes into the middle frame and then LUKE ESPOSITO, the freshman center from Greenwich, Connecticut, who is the nephew of former NHL star and multiple Stanley Cup winner Mark Messier, doubled the advantage with a second goal for Harvard only 13 seconds before the end of the second period. Influential Crimson defenseman PATRICK MCNALLY, the junior from Glen Head, New York, was the fourth round choice (# 115 overall) of the Vancouver Canucks at the 2010 NHL Draft, collected assists on both goals.

Underwriting this success for the visitors was the sensational form of Harvard senior goaltender RAPHAEL GIRARD, who stopped all 31 shots he faced through the first forty minutes of play.

==================================================

==================================================
Yale left wing TRENT RUFFOLO (11), the seasoned junor from Coral Gables, Florida, and Harvard right wing KRIS CRISCUOLO(33), the emerging sophomore from Southampton, New Jersey, who has scored seven goals in his first thirteen varsity games for the Crimson, during the 238th all-time ice hockey contest between traditional foes played for a sellout crowd of 3,500 spectators at the sold out David S. Ingalls Rink in New Haven.
==================================================

Yale, who seriously lag behind in the all-time series record between the two schools (77 wins against 141 losses with 20 ties) but can now accurately state that they have won just as many NCAA national championship titles in history as Harvard has, were not about to fall on home ice to their eternal enemy, however. And so the Bulldogs came out for the final frame and began to lay an absolute siege upon the Harvard cage, one that would ultimately see Yale outshoot the Crimson by the astonishing margin of 20-4 over the last twenty minutes of regulation play. Indeed, it took the home side barely more than two minutes to haul one of the goals back and manufacture some genuine belief when defenseman MATT KILLIAN, the versatile junior from Basking Ridge, New Jersey, who actually appeared in all four of the Bulldogs’ memorable NCAA tournament games last spring as a right wing for the very first time in his collegiate career, crashed the net and won a battle for a rebound before slipping the puck through the pads of the beleaguered Harvard shot-stopper Girard to count his first goal of this season (and only the second strike in 60 career games for the Yale varsity).

The relentless Bulldogs finally broke through for an deserved equalizer with less than six minutes reminaing when senior KENNY AGOSTINO, an All-ECAC Second Team selection last season who had his NHL rights traded from the Pittsburgh Penquins to the Calgary Flames as part of the deal that brought NHL veteran star and two-time Canadian Olympic gold medalist Jarome Iginla to the Steel City, made a deceptive move in the right faceoff circle by indicating with a head fake as if he was contemplating a pass but, instead, unleashed a low shot into the corner of the Crimson net to score his third goal of this term.

MATT BEATTIE, the sophomore left wing from Whitehouse Station, New Jersey, who was the seventh round choice (# 207 overall) of the Vancouver Canucks at the 2012 NHL Draft but went pointless in 15 NCAA games as a freshman for Yale last season, set up both goals for the home side in the third period against their eternal enemy Harvard and collected the first two assists of his collegiate career in the process.

With absolutely nothing between these two Ivy League schools settled, as last as far as this current season goes and only one regular-scheduled conference game left on the scheudule, Harvard (now 4-7-2) and Yale (now 6-3-3) will meet again later this season in an event being billed as “THE RIVALRY ON ICE” on January 11th at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City.

==================================================

==================================================
Yale right wing KENNY AGOSTINO (18), the senior from Flanders, New Jersey, who was selected in the fifth round (# 140 overall) of the 2010 National Hockey League Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins and finished as the Bulldogs’ joint top scorer with 41 points in 37 NCAA games last season, netted the first goal in what will, without question, forever rank as one of the Ivy League school’s most famous victories ever — Yale’s 3-2 overtime defeat of traditional powerhouse Minnesota at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in the first round of the 2013 NCAA men’s ice hockey tournament last spring.

Root had already netted six goals this season — a figure which is still twice as many as the nearest Yale player — before being sidelined recently.

Harvard & Yale Will Skate For 238th Time Tonight


==================================================
Yale University captain ANDREW MILLER (17), the undrafted senior from Bloomfied Hills, Michigan, who now skates professionally for the Oklahoma City Barons in the American Hockey League, is pursued by Harvard University skipper DANNY BIEGA (9), the imported senior Canadian defenseman who was chosen by the Carolina Hurricanes in the third round (# 67 overall) of the 2010 National Hockey League Draft and currently competes for the Charlotte Checkers in the American Hockey League, during the 237th all-time meeting between the two legendary Ivy League arch-rivals early last January in a ECAC Conference clash at the unique David S. Ingalls Rink (a.k.a. “The Yale Whale”) in New Haven, Connecticut.
==================================================

The two storied Ivy League schools, who first met on ice more than 113 years ago at the old St. Nicholas Rink on the island of Manhattan in New York, will renew their intense rivalry for the 238th time in collegiate ice hockey history. Of course, it is YALE UNIVERSITY who are the defending NCAA national champions. But, as many people are well aware, it is HARVARD UNIVERSITY, who won their one and only NCAA national title more than two decades ago in 1989, that holds a commanding lead in the all-time series by sporting the dominant record of 141 wins against 77 losses with 19 draws.

It is a fact that, recently, the Bulldogs have done much better against their traditional arch-adversary, the Crimson, in the past five years than at any other prolonged stretch since the 1940s. Yale has won seven of the past games against Harvard, including the two Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference matches last season at the Alexander C. Bright Hockey Center (5-1) in November of 2012 as well as at the David S. Ingalls Rink (4-0) in January of 2013. This surge of Bulldog power in the Harvard series, unseen since the days when former New York Rangers ironman forward MURRAY MURDOCH was only just beginning his 27-year run behind the Yale bench, has, for the most part, coincided with the arrival of current head coach KEITH ALLAIN, who was, himself, a goaltender at Yale University in the late 1970s.

In a concentrated effort to reconnect with the glorious history and tradition of this particular college hockey rivalry, both Harvard and Yale have signed a multi-year agreement with a marketing and promotion firm, Leverage Agency, to bring the series back to the bright lights of New York City … this coming January, the Bulldogs and the Crimson will face-off at the famed Madison Square Garden arena on Broadway for the first time since February of 1926 in an event that is being touted as “THE RIVALRY ON ICE.” Not surprisingly, the fast-approaching 239th Harvard vs Yale game will be broadcast nationally on the NBC Sports Network.

Tonight, this on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, an underdog Harvard squad (4-7-1 overall) will look to invade New Haven and drop the upset bombshell on the reigning emperors of all college ice hockey, who are currently ranked # 8 by USCHO.com and fashion a record of six wins against three losses with two ties so far this season.

Ivy League In The NHL


===============================================================
LORD STANLEY’s CHAMPION DEFENSE CORPS, CIRCA 1929 — the blueliners on the BOSTON BRUINS’ very first Stanley Cup title-winning squad, from left to right, are the reliable veteran LIONEL HITCHMAN, the rookies MYLES LANE (Dartmouth College) and GEORGE OWEN (Harvard University) as well as the irrepressible future Hall of Famer EDDIE SHORE.
===============================================================

Although to this very day the sight of an IVY LEAGUE player performing in the vaunted NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE is still a relatively rare occurrence, the fact of the matter is that Ivy Leaguers have been skating in the storied NHL since the puck was dropped for the very first time back in December of 1917.

Indeed, 21-year-old forward GERRY GERAN had left the picturesque DARTMOUTH COLLEGE campus in New England behind and signed a professional contract with the ill-fated Montreal Wanderers, a club that had already lifted the Stanley Cup four times in the trophy’s then-brief history. The native of Holyoke, Massachusetts, went on to participate in four of the Wanderers’ first six games before a fire completely destroyed the Montreal Arena and led directly to the folding of the team. Nevertheless, it was Geran, then, who became the very first American to ever skate in the fledgling NHL.

Following a seven-year hiatus, Geran returned to contest the 1925/26 campaign with the expansion Boston Bruins club. Late that same season, the second American to ever compete in the crack NHL also appeared when the New York Americans added forward BOB HALL from the New York Athletic Association. Hall, who had skated three varsity seasons at Dartmouth College from 1920 until 1922, had been a teammate of the American pioneer Geran on the Boston Athletic Association Unicorns in the United States Amateur Hockey Association for two seasons before relocating to the Big Apple.

=================================================================

=================================================================
HAT TRICK OF DARTMOUTH HEROES, CIRCA 1928 (left to right) — the remarkable MYLES LANE, the All-America halfback who led the Indians the national collegiate football championship as a sophomore in 1925 and piled up 50 goals in only 17 career games while skating on defense for the varsity ice hockey squad, the versatile EDDIE JEREMIAH, who, after his professional playing career was over, returned to Dartmouth and successfully held the position of varsity ice hockey coach for three decades, along with teammate ED ARMSTRONG.
=================================================================

The Boston Bruins made hockey history a few seasons later and still another pair of Ivy Leaguers were right of the middle of it all, then. Boston defensemen MYLES LANE and GEORGE OWEN had both been star halfbacks on the college football gridiron for Dartmouth College and Harvard University, respectively, before embarking on their travels as professional ice hockey players. It was this unique pair who both became the very first pucksters born in the United States to celebrate a Stanley Cup championship after skating in all five playoff games for the Bruins in the spring of 1929.

Lane had actually made hockey history all by himself earlier that fall. The native of Melrose, Massachusetts, signed a professional contract with the New York Americans one day shy of his 23rd birthday and soon became the very first player to graduate straight from a U.S. college hockey program to a regular place the NHL without skating so much as one game in the minor leagues. After appearing in all but one of New York’s first 25 contests on the 1928/29 schedule, Lane was sold by the Americans to the Boston Bruins for the price of $ 7,500 dollars in early February.

Yet one more Dartmouth College product briefly joined the proud ranks of the NHL professionals during the 1931/32 season when EDDIE JEREMIAH, a versatile sort who could be deployed in the defense or up on the right wing with equal effect, was promoted by the New York Americans from the New Haven Eagles of the old Canadian-American League.

=====================================================

=====================================================
Cornell University goaltender KEN DRYDEN backstopped the Big Red to the coveted NCAA national championship title as a sophomore in 1967 and, two seasons later, appeared in two games for the national team of Canada at the 1969 IIHF World Championships in Stockholm, Sweden.
=====================================================

After the Second World War ended, the National Hockey League entered into a long era during which time the elite, six-team circuit was almost completely devoid of American-born and / or U.S. college-trained players. Things began to change in earnest when the NHL implemented its ambitious expansion program prior to the beginning of the 1967/68 campaign. With the number of NHL teams having been doubled to twelve, more than twice as many job openings for players had instantly been created and the subsequent emergence of the rival World Hockey Association five years later opened still more new opportunities, particularly for those at the top of the American collegiate talent pool.

A wave of would-be All-Star Game participants hailing from a whole new set of Ivy League institutions of higher learning suddenly appeared on the NHL scene at the start of the 1970s. Cornell University’s Canadian legionnaire KEN DRYDEN had been honored as the First Team (East) All-America goaltender three times in as many terms before going on to amass six Stanley Cup titles in only eight seasons guarding the cage for the fabled Montreal Canadiens. CURT BENNETT, who later skated for the United States at the inaugural Canada Cup international ice hockey tournament in 1976, starred for Brown University and was named First Team (East) All-America in 1970 as a defenseman before being shifted to center after turning professional with the St. Louis Blues organization.

===============================================================

===============================================================
Brown University defenseman CURT BENNETT, who was born in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan but moved to the United States as a youngster and played high school hockey in Cranston, Rhode Island, before going off to college, twice topped the 30-goal mark and appeared in the annual NHL All-Star Game on two occasions while skating as a center for the Atlanta Flames in the mid-1970s.
