Knights Sweep Crimson

It wasn't pretty but Clarkson defeated Harvard tonight 2-1, sweeping the Crimson and advancing to the ECAC final four for the first time since 2004.

Grant Clitsome put the Knights on the board first with a first period powerplay goal. Clarkson played it's best period of the weekend in the first, but only had a 1-0 lead to show for it at the end.

Harvard was skating for their lives in the second and took it to Clarkson, leading to a goal and a 1-1 game. Harvard was awarded a penalty shot in the second as well but could not convert.

In the third period, Mike Sullivan snook home a beautiful feed from David Cayer to give the Knights a 2-1 lead. David Leggio stood tall as Harvard plugged away with the extra attacker. Leggio was equal to the task and the Knights move on to Albany. Leggio finished with 37 saves on the night and had 64 saves for the weekend.

Clarkson will face Dartmouth in the ECAC semifinals at 8PM at the Times Union Center in Albany. SLU will take on Quinnipiac at 4:30.
