Union wins 2nd straight ECAC hockey title, berth in NCAA tournament with 3-1 win over Brown

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - Max Novak scored twice and Union won its second straight ECAC hockey championship by beating Brown 3-1 on Saturday night.

Union (21-12-15) has won six straight games. The fourth-seeded Dutchmen earned the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, where they will attempt to make a second consecutive run to the Frozen Four.

Union scored the first two goals, the second on a snap shot by Novak that beat goalie Anthony Borelli from the high slot through traffic with 13 seconds remaining in the first period.

Novak scored again on a rebound in the second to make it 3-0.

Brown (16-14-6) got its lone goal on the power play in the second period when Dennis Robertson wristed a shot past Troy Grosenick, who made 31 saves. The seventh-seeded Bears were playing in their first conference championship game since 1993 after upsetting top-seeded Quinnipiac 4-0 on Friday.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
