Three Women's Ice Hockey Teams Open Regular Season This Weekend
PRINCETON, N.J. -- Yale and Cornell take the ice Saturday, while Dartmouth hits the ice Sunday to open the 2013-14 Ivy League women's ice hockey regular season.
The other three Ivies will play final pre-season games this weekend. Harvard entertains McGill in an exhibition, while Brown and Princeton will play a scrimmage as a final tune-up.
Cornell will play a two-game set at home against Northeastern on Saturday and Sunday. Both of those games will be shown live on The Ivy League® Digital Network. In addition, Harvard's exhibition with McGill will also be shown Saturday beginning at 4 pm.
Yale plays a final exhibition tune-up on Friday night before taking on Boston College on the road Saturday afternoon. Dartmouth will visit Boston College on Sunday afternoon.

Cornell is ranked No. 5 in this week's USCHO.com Top 10 poll, while Harvard is ranked No. 9. The two teams shared the Ivy title a year ago and both earned spots in the NCAA Championship field. Both teams, however, suffered opening round losses in the tournament.
