BOSTON — In preparing to face Harvard’s NCAA-leading power play, Union hockey’s Brett Supinski said, “They have a great power play every year, so when it comes to the kill, we’re really going to need to be sharp and plugged in, force the issue and do everything we can to deter their ‘D’ from running the system.”

The Dutchmen failed miserably.

The Crimson went 4-for-4 on the power play, helping them to a 5-3 ECAC Hockey victory over the Dutchmen on Friday at Bright-Landry Hockey Center.

Harvard is 27-for-75 (36 percent) on the man advantage this season. The Crimson scored 27 power-play goals all of last season.
Meanwhile, Union was ineffective on its power-play opportunities, going 0-for-3.

Lewis Zerter-Gossage got the Crimson’s first power-play tally midway through the first period. Anthony Rinaldi tied it for Union (6-8-1, 13-9-5) with 4:48 left in the first period. But with seven seconds left, Jack Badini got Harvard’s second power-play marker.

The Dutchmen would take a 3-2 lead in the second period on goals by Ryan Walker and Greg Campbell. But another late-period power-play goal, this time by Jack Drury, tied the score.

Just over six minutes into the third period, Casey Dornbach snapped the tie with Harvard’s fourth power-play goal. The Crimson’s only even-strength goal was scored by Frédéric Grégoire, an empty-net tally with 47 seconds left.
