Louie Roehl and Jared Thomas scored in the first 3:04 and Minnesota Duluth held off Ohio State 2-1 on Thursday night to reach the NCAA championship game for the second straight year.
Duluth's lone NCAA title came in 2011 when the Bulldogs beat MI 3-2 in overtime, the last time the Frozen Four was played at Xcel Energy Center.
Jake Evans of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish celebrates his game winning goal with teammates on the bench in the final seconds against the Michigan Wolverines during the semifinals of the NCAA Hockey Championship on April 5, 2018, in St Paul, Minnesota.
Top-seeded Notre Dame (27-9-2) faces second-seeded MI (22-14-3) in the other semifinal at 8:30 p.m.
Lavigne made 25 saves. And the US team that finished fourth at the IIHF World Junior Championships in January featured 10 Minnesotans, four from UMD - Pernovich, Tufte, and Joey and Mikey Anderson of Roseville. That's fine, but the next and final destination for Evans and Notre Dame is just that, the finals. "But UMD is a great team and (Scott) Sandelin is a great coach and he seems to get the best out of the team, so I'd still be hopeful". "And again we have 26 players on our team and those guys have all contributed this year".
"I was a baseball kid growing up and didn't even know how to ice skate", Griffiths said.

"I don't think there was one day all year when I had to get on them, " Rohlik said.Читайте также: Local Business Owner Hosts Annual Easter Egg Hunt
It was the fifth meeting of the year between MI and Notre Dame after each won twice in the regular season.
"Tough way to start a hockey game against a really good hockey team", Buckeyes coach Steve Rohlik said.
There's a chance for a UMD-Michigan rematch Saturday in the championship game. "Staying in a routine is probably the biggest thing for me and just be ready to go Saturday". "A lot of people didn't believe in us". We didn't have the most talent, but in the four years I've been here this is the best team I've been a part of.
In both games, the Bulldogs didn't give up a shot on goal once the opposition pulled its goaltender. "We had high expectations going into the season".
Kuhlman - who along with Joey Anderson has scored the Bulldogs' first goal a team-high five times this season - admitted his big play against the Mavericks was a bit self-serving.
"I tried to get out there and make sure he wasn't going to put one in short side".
MI arguably had better quality scoring chances late in the third period, but that didn't matter when all was said and done.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
