USCHO Women’s Game of the Week:
St. Lawrence at Yale

The ECACHL’s consensus top team and one of the league’s hottest teams collide this Saturday at Ingalls Rink in New Haven, Conn.


No. 2 St. Lawrence is enjoying its finest season to date, ranking near the top of the national rankings in all statistical categories. With six straight wins, the Saints have put together their best streak since opening the season with eight consecutive victories. Yale has searched for consistency all season and if the last three weeks are any indication, the Bulldogs may finally have found what they’ve been looking for. A 5-0-2 stretch that has vaulted them back to .500.

Last month, Yale held a 2-1 lead after two periods at Appleton Arena but St. Lawrence rallied for the win with three power-play goals in the third. This Saturday, the Saints look to preserve their one-game lead over No. 5 Princeton in the league tables while the Bulldogs look to make up the one game separating them from faltering No. 10 Harvard.
