Yale shuts down Quinnipiac 4-0 to win first NCAA hockey title

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Jeff Malcolm of Lethbridge, Alta., stopped 36 shots and Yale won its first NCAA hockey championship with a 4-0 victory over top-seeded Quinnipiac on Saturday night.

Clinton Bourbonais, Charles Orzetti, Andrew Miller and Jesse Root scored for the Bulldogs (22-12-3), who avenged three earlier losses to the Connecticut-rival Bobcats this season by stunning the nation's No. 1 team on the biggest stage of all.

Bourbonais scored with four seconds left in the second period to give Yale the lead, then the Bulldogs (30-80-5) added three more in the third to win going away. Yale became the first ECAC team since Harvard in 1989 to capture the national title.

Quinnipiac's Eric Hartzell stopped 27 shots, but the Hobey Baker finalist was beaten between the legs three times, including a breakaway goal by Miller midway through the third to give Yale a commanding 3-0 lead.

Quote of the Day

Because of the way they play and their skill set I don't think they're fourth-line players, so in my mind I'm looking at one of those guys I'll have to move over to the wing.
