Bulldogs Advance to Title Game
UMD Beat Harvard 2-1 on Thursday
CHICAGO – The energy nothing less than electric as UMD took the ice for their first Frozen Four since 2011.
Chicago’s United Center soon became a dog house and UMD swept the Harvard Crimson out of the Windy City and punched their ticket to a national championship.
“I just think we’re a really composed team,” said forward Joey Anderson. “As the game moves on we play a really good style that allows us to maintain our game and finish chances whne we get them and that’s the way we’ve done it lately.”
Anderson scored to tie the game at one late in the first period. Alex Iafallo’s goal gave the Bulldogs the win.
“Been resilient all year, that’s been our mindset going into the 3rd or overtime,” said Iafallo. “I’m just glad we didn’t go into overtime this time here.”
UMD Coach Scott Sandelin can win his second title Saturday.
“It was a battle, we knew its was going to be. No surprising, both goalies were good, fortunately we made a play at the end and got a little puck luck,” said Sandelin.
And so just a single game remains between UMD and college hockey immortality as the Bulldogs seek to capture thier second national title in program history.
