The men’s hockey team will face off against Princeton, the third-place finisher in ECAC Hockey, at 7:30 p.m. at the Times Union Center in Albany on Friday. Cornell won the first meeting between the two teams this season, 1-0, in New Jersey behind a goal from senior forward Tyler Mugford and a shutout by junior goalie Ben Scrivens. The second game between the Tigers and the Red this season looked like it would finish the same way — the Red had a 1-0 lead heading into the final minute of play. But the Tigers scored twice in the last 36 seconds to snag the 2-1 win and tie up the season series.
