ALLSTON, Mass. — Harvard answered a three-goal Dartmouth explosion with one of its own, eventually handing the Big Green a 7-3 loss at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center on Friday night in the ECAC men’s hockey opener for both teams.

Harvard jumped on Dartmouth for first-period goals from Jack Rathbone at 1:42 and Colton Kerfoot at 12:27. The Big Green roared back with its early second-period explosion. Daniel Warpecha and Harrison Markell scored within a span of 21 seconds to tie the game before the middle stanza was two minutes old. Quin Foreman gave Dartmouth its first lead at 6:34, which the Big Green held until Henry Thrun’s equalizer at 10:20.

That kicked off the Crimson comeback. Rathbone scored his second of the night just 36 seconds after Thrun’s tying marker, and Jack Drury added another at 12:57 as the Crimson hit the second intermission with a 5-3 lead. John Farinacci’s empty-netter with 2:20 to play and a final-minute Nick Abruzzese strike set the final margin.
