The Princeton men’s ice hockey season this year can be viewed as one long comeback.

However, this pales in comparison to the comeback pulled by the team in this weekend’s three-game playoff series against Colgate. Literally a second from elimination, Princeton fought back to win the series and advance in the tournament.
