The Dartmouth College men’s hockey team picked up their first two road wins of the season, edging Brown, 4-3, on Friday night in Providence, R.I. and thumping Yale, 4-0, the next evening in New Haven, Conn.

The Big Green overcame three separate one-goal deficits against the Bears before scoring the eventual game-winner late in the third period. Freshman Cam MacDonald scored Dartmouth’s first goal on a power play, with assists from sophomore Sean Chisholm and freshman Cooper Flinton. Brown went back ahead early in the second, but junior Joey Musa had an answer, with sophomore Matt Hubbarde and senior Tanner Palocsik getting the assists.

After the Bears took their third lead of the game, the Big Green’s power play came through again as sophomore Ian Pierce and MacDonald set up Flinton with less than 30 seconds remaining in the middle stanza. Flinton struck again with 3:32 to go in the third, assists going to Musa and Chisholm.

Freshman goaltender Cooper Black made 19 saves as Dartmouth completed the season sweep of Brown, having defeated the Bears in a shootout in Hanover on Nov. 5.

On Saturday against the Bulldogs, freshman Luke Haymes opened the scoring less than three minutes in, assisted by sophomore John Fusco and Hubbarde. The Dartmouth power play produced two goals in the second period, the first coming from Musa (assists to Palocsik and Hubbarde) and the second from Hubbarde (assists to Haymes and Fusco).

Sophomore Braiden Dorfman piled on with less than two minutes remaining, from Hubbarde and junior Ryan Sorkin. Black made 24 saves in the shutout, the Big Green’s third victory over Yale this year. Dartmouth defeated the Bulldogs, 6-0, at Thompson Arena on Nov. 4 and had a 4-3 win over Yale in the consolation game of the Ledyard Classic on Dec. 31.

The Big Green (4-15-1, 3-9-1 ECAC Hockey) return home to face Cornell on Friday and Colgate on Saturday. Dartmouth’s next seven games will be on home ice.
