  • January 13 to 14: Hillary Crowe registered four points in two ECAC conference wins versus RPI and Union. Of note, she assisted on the game-winning goals in both contests. In the win versus RPI, Crowe contributed with three assists in a come from behind win.[5]
  • February 3: Jillian Dempsey helped the Crimson come back from a 2-0 deficit versus Quinnipiac. In a 4-2 final tally, she registered her ninth multi-point game of the year.
  • February 4: Dempsey was one goal short of tying the NCAA record for goals in a game, netting five against Princeton. With Harvard behind 1-0 in the second period, she netted three straight markers for a natural hat trick. Late in the second, she added her fourth of the frame. Dempsey recorded a power-play and a short-handed goal also. Her fifth goal came with 41 seconds remaining in the contest.[6]
  • February 7: The Crimson faced a three-goal third-period deficit, and lost the Women's Beanpot consolation game to Boston College at Walter Brown Arena. The 4-2 loss marks the first time since 1993 that the Crimson finished fourth at the annual Beanpot.[7]
