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."
