UMD beats Michigan 3-2 for NCAA title

Sunday, 04.10.2011 / 1:40 AM / On Campus

Minnesota Duluth won its first NCAA hockey title when Kyle Schmidt scored 3:22 into overtime to give the Bulldogs a 3-2 victory against Michigan in the championship game at St. Paul, Minn.

Freshman Justin Faulk had a chance to give the Bulldogs the win in the opening moments of overtime, but his shot from below the left circle was stopped by Shawn Hunwick. But a few shifts later, Travis Oleksuk fed a backhand passout in front of the net to Schmidt, who one-timed it into the net for the winner.

"I didn’t get over and across in time," said Hunwick, who had no chance. "It happened so fast. I’m not sure what really happened."

UMD, Michigan to meet for NCAA title

Friday, 04.08.2011 / 12:11 AM / On Campus

Shawn Hunwick's spectacular goaltending was too much for top-seeded North Dakota.

The Fighting Sioux, the highest seed remaining in the Frozen Four, outshot Michigan 40-20 -- but Hunwick stopped all 40 shots to give the Wolverines a 2-0 victory and a berth in Saturday's NCAA championship game at St. Paul, Minn.

Michigan (29-10-4) will try for its 10th NCAA-record 10th title when it meets Minnesota-Duluth in the championship game at the Xcel Energy Center. The Bulldogs opened the Frozen Four by holding off Notre Dame 4-3. They will be making only their second trip to the championship game -- the other one was a four-OT loss to Bowling Green in 1984.

Two of the four teams that will skate in the 2011 NCAA Men's Frozen Four are titans in the sport's history, while the other two have an eye on making program history.

Michigan and North Dakota enter with 43 total Frozen Four appearances; Minnesota-Duluth and Notre Dame with a combined six.

Michigan and North Dakota have 16 national titles between them; UMD and Notre Dame each are seeking their first.

UMD and Notre Dame meet in the first semifinal, 5 p.m. ET on April 7 at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn. Michigan and North Dakota will play in the second game, scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET. The winners will play for the NCAA title at 7 p.m. ET on April 9.

Is Martin St. Louis among the greatest over-achievers in NHL history? That's up for debate, but there is no question he's right there in NCAA history.

"I've dedicated my life to being a hockey player," said St. Louis, "and the truth is I'm so focused on being a hockey player. That comes from a kid dream just trying to accomplish being the best you can."

St. Louis is hands-down the best scorer in the history of the University of Vermont, a two-hour drive from his hometown of Laval, Que.

"I felt like I could step in right away and get quality ice time," St. Louis said of his decision to play at Vermont. "It was near my house and I loved the campus and the Gutterson Fieldhouse. When I first saw a game there it was electrifying.

Sixteen teams were selected Sunday morning for the puck version of March Madness which begins this weekend at four regional sites.

Five of those teams won their league tournaments the night before, earning the automatic bid; 11 were selected at-large.

The No. 1 seeds are Miami in the Northeast regional, North Dakota in the Midwest regional, Boston College in the West regional, and Yale in the East regional.

Yale is the No. 1 seed overall.

While these four are historic powerhouses in late March, others like Western Michigan and Rensselaer assume the ultimate underdog role, possibly all the way to a final-game showdown on April 9 in St. Paul.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
