The Cornell men’s hockey team extended its unbeaten streak to seven games and moved into a tie for first place in ECAC Hockey thanks to a 5-1 victory over Dartmouth on Saturday evening at Lynah Rink.
Five different players scored goals, and Matt Nuttle and Morgan Barron had two assists apiece for Cornell (11-5-1, 7-2-1 ECAC Hockey), which now sits alongside Quinnipiac and Yale with 15 points in the conference – though the Big Red has two games in hand on the Bobcats and one on Yale. And Cornell kept its winning ways going on Saturday despite not even having enough healthy skaters to fill the lineup.
“We had a (defenseman) playing forward and guys playing in all kinds of different positions,” said Mike Schafer ’86, the Jay R. Bloom ’77 Head Coach of Men’s Hockey at Cornell. “We didn’t play great off the bat, but we got a big goal from Connor Murphy.”
