The Green are coming off an 0-1-1 weekend with hard-fought games at Colgate and No. 10 Cornell. The Big Green and Eagles will meet at Conte Forum for the scheduled 4 p.m. puck drop. of the two teams have left the building a one-goal victor, while twice the teams have been unable to determine a winner through 65 minutes. The only game decided by more than a single goal in that stretch was Cornell’s 3-1 Game 2 victory in last season’s quarterfinal series.The first game of the weekend was a double-overtime thriller that ended in heartbreaking fashion for the visitors. ▶ ONE-LOSS TEAM Dartmouth and Boston College are two of the four remaining one-loss teams in the country to this point. After dropping its first game of the year, the defending national champs have rattled off wins in their last nine for the longest streak in the nation this season. The Big Green began 2012-13 without a loss in its first six games (50-1) to hold on as the final team in the nation to suffer its first defeat. No. 2 Denver (9-1-0) and No. 3 New Hampshire (8-1-1) are the other two programs that have just one blemish to their record thus far. ▶ THIS WEEK’S POLLS Even without taking a win on their two-game Central New York road swing, the Green were able to move up one spot in each of the two national polls this week. Dartmouth is now ranked No. 11 in both the USCHO.com Division I Poll as well as the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine rankings. The No. 11 position matches the team’s best ranking since the poll began in the fall of 1997.The last time the Big Green were as high as No. 11 came during the preseason of 2004-05 (September 27). ▶ LAST TIME OUT The Green and White had a 4-1 lead early in the third period against Colgate Friday night in Hamilton, but suffered their first defeat as the Raiders stormed back with four-unanswered tallies to end the game. Although viewed as a devastating loss to take, Dartmouth moved on to Ithaca the following night and battled for a hard-earned point in the standings with a 1-1 tie. With the extra attacker on in the final minute, captain Mike Keenan’s slap shot from the point found space inside the right post for the equalizer. ▶ CLOSE GAMES Playing close games with the Big Red have become customary the last few years for the team in Green and White. In the last 10 games between the two programs (including Saturday’s 1-1 draw), nine have been decided by either one goal or have ended in a tie. Seven times one big green ▶SCHEDULE GAME Hanover, N.H. • Alumni Gymnasium • Thompson Arena • Assistant Director / Men’s Ice Hockey Contact: Pat Salvas • Office: (603) 646-9340 / Patrick.Salvas@Dartmouth.edu ▶ LEAGUE STANDINGS With two games in hand over Quinnipiac, Dartmouth enters its non-conference winter stretch as the leader in the ECAC Hockey standings with nine points. The Bobcats’ fourgame win streak against league foes has them second with eight points, while No. 8 Union and No. 17 Harvard sit tied for third with six points apiece. ▶ HALTED For the first time all season, junior Eric Robinson and sophomore Tyler Sikura were held without a point in the team’s tie at Cornell. Robinson had actually scored at least once in each of the team’s first seven games before being denied by the Big Red. Sikura opened the season on a seven-game point streak that saw the sophomore post nearly half of his total output from his freshman season (25 points in 34 GP) in a fifth of the games as he has 12 points (5g/7a) to start 2012-13.
