Tonight the Terriers and Harvard Crimson will play the in annual Tuesday before Thanksgiving game. Last season the tow teams did not meet on this day and it was the first time in a while that the game did not take place. Tonight's game will be played at the Bright Hockey Center home of the Harvard Crimson.
Through the early going of the season the Crimson like the Terrier have struggled. Harvard has a record of 1-4-2 with the lone win coming against Dartmouth whom they beat 5-3. Harvard is coming off a tie at Clarkson and a loss to the Skating Saints of the University of St. Lawrence. The Terrier on the other hand probably played their best game of the season on saturday when they tied UNH 3-3. It should be a close one but I think that the Terriers pull this one out.
The Last Time They Met
The last time the Terriers played the Crimson was in the Beanpot semi finals. The Terrier won the game 4-3 on a power play goal By Jason Lawrence. Harvard did have a 2-0 lead going into the second period only to see it disappear as the game went on.

Last night former Terrier Matt Gilroy scored his third goal of the season on a wrist shot. This gave the New York Rangers a 6-3 lead at the time.
