A goal by Harvard's Danny Biega late in the third period extended Clarkson's winless streak to four games as the Crimson edged the Golden Knights 3-2 before 2,241 fans in an ECAC Hockey game at Cheel Arena Friday night.
Clarkson (6-4-3, 1-3-1) never led in the game and had just tied it 2-2 with a power-play goal from Matt Zarbo at 12 minutes, 4 seconds of the third period.
But just 61 seconds after Zarbo's goal, Biega quieted the crowd with a goal of his own, which proved to be the game-winner.
Clarkson got one last chance to tie the Crimson (2-2-1) when Harvard's Colin Blackwell was given a major penalty for boarding with 5:05 left in the game. But the Crimson killed the penalty and held on for the win.
