Cambridge, Mass. -- Harvard and Colgate meet for the first of two meetings this season Saturday night at the Bright Center on the campus of Harvard University.

Colgate (10-9-3 overall, 6-3-1 ECAC) enters the game on a four-game unbeaten streak that dates back to the Mariucci Classic. The Raiders tied Minnesota, but won in a shootout before shutting out Ferris State for the championship.

Last weekend Don Vaughn's team defeated Vermont of Hockey East by a score of 3-2. Colgate was a 4-1 winner over Dartmouth in ECAC action last night.

Harvard (5-9-3 overall, 2-7-3 ECAC) won its first game after the Christmas break over Boston University, 7-4, and then tied Quinnipiac, 2-2, but have lost the last two outings. The Crimson lost, 5-1, against Yale at Madison Square Garden last weekend and fell to rival Cornell, 3-2, last night.

Peter Traber will get his first start of the season for Ted Donato's team tonight. The sophomore from Birmingham, Mich. played in eight games as a freshman. He will be countered at the other end by Charlie Finn of North Vancouver, British Columbia.
