For the Princeton University women's hockey team, the task last weekend was clear.
If the Tigers won their games at Brown and Yale, they would clinch eighth place in the ECAC Hockey standings and the final spot in the upcoming league playoffs.
Princeton achieved step one on Friday as it edged Brown 2-1 with junior Olivia Mucha and freshman Molly Contini finding the back of the net in the first period and freshman goalie Kimberley newell making 23 saves.
"Mucha got us going early, she made a nice move and found a seam," said Princeton head coach Jeff Kampersal.
