Struggling to find good scoring chances for the second straight night at Bright Hockey Center, Harvard took advantage of its last, best look, with Alex Killorn converting on a power-play rush with 8.2 seconds left in regulation to give the Crimson a 1-0 victory over 18th-ranked Rensselaer.

Harvard (1-1-0) has just two goals in its first two ECAC games. Killorn’s goal, assisted by Michael Biega and Conor Morrison, was the Crimson’s first with a man advantage in five opportunities.

After making 33 saves against Union in Friday night’s 2-1 loss, Kyle Richter faced just 19 shots against Rensselaer (4-2-3, 1-1-0) and stopped them all.

New Hampshire 2, UMass-Lowell 1 — After assisting on the opening goal, John Henrion broke a 1-1 tie in the second period to lift the No. 10 Wildcats (4-1-2, 2-0-1) over the River Hawks (2-6-2, 2-6-0) in a Hockey East matchup in Lowell.

Providence 3, Vermont 3 — The Friars (3-4-2, 3-2-2 Hockey East) denied the visiting Catamounts (0-3-3, 0-2-2) their first win by getting third-period goals from Derek Army and Chris Rooney. Since losing four straight, Providence is unbeaten in four games (2-0-2).

Yale 5, Quinnipiac 1 — At New Haven, Brian O’Neill scored twice during a five-goal flurry by the No. 5 Bulldogs (4-0-0, 2-0-0 ECAC). Ryan Rondeau stopped 29 shots by the Bobcats (4-3-1, 0-1-1).

Dartmouth 0, Union 0 — James Mello had 37 saves for the Big Green (1-2-1, 0-1-1 ECAC) and Keith Kinkaid made 29 stops for the No. 15 Dutchmen (6-1-2, 1-0-0) in Hanover, N.H.

Princeton 4, Brown 3 — Michael Sdao’s goal early in the third period for the Tigers (1-3-0, 1-1-0 ECAC) broke a 3-3 tie in Providence. The Bears (1-2-1, 0-1-1) couldn’t hold a 2-0 lead.

Holy Cross 3, Robert Morris 2 — Kyle Fletcher popped in an overtime goal to give the Crusaders (4-4-0, 3-1-0) the Atlantic Hockey win in Worcester. The Colonials (6-2-0, 5-2-0) had tied the game 11:30 into the third period.

Assumption 4, Becker 3 — The Greyhounds (2-0-0) rallied to win the Ice Breaker tournament in Marlboro. Kevin Glanzman’s power-play goal with 19 seconds left was Assumption’s third score in the final 13 minutes. Suffolk beat Stonehill, 1-0, in the third-place game.

BU 4, Providence 1 — Kathryn Miller had a goal and two assists during a four-goal second period for the No. 5 Terriers (7-1-1, 1-0-1 Hockey East) at Walter Brown Arena. Ashley Cottrell scored her third goal of the season for the Friars (7-3-1, 0-1-1).

Northeastern 4, Yale 0 — In a nonconference meeting at Matthews Arena, Casey Pickett scored twice for the Huskies (7-2-2).

Harvard 3, Colgate 1 — The No. 10 Crimson (2-1-1, 2-1-1 ECAC) picked up their first road win behind Laura Bellamy’s 20 saves. Kate Buesser, Kalley Armstrong, and Leanna Coskren scored.
