Delbarton alumni Charles Orzetti and Matt Killian helped Yale defeat Harvard, 4-1, in the second annual Rivalry on Ice at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. Orzetti, a junior forward, was named the game’s MVP, receiving the trophy from former New York Ranger Mark Messier.
Orzetti scored the Elis’ second goal late in the first period, flipping the puck over the Harvard goaltender. Killian, a senior defenseman-turned-forward put back his own rebound with 2:32 to play in the second period. He took a slap shot from the high slot that sailed wide left, bounced off the top of the boards and out along the crease, where Killian was able to score on the backhand.
This is Yale’s second victory over third-ranked Harvard, which allowed a season-high four goals.
“We came out hard and did what we had to do,” Killian said in a press release. “We play a team game. We play as a unit and I think that showed.”
