Updates with new lead. The Bulldogs (28-11-2) advanced to their third consecutive championship game with a 4-1 win over Providence. Dylan Samberg scored the first before Justin Richards tacked on his second tally of the game. Shepard made four saves and the Bulldogs won three of four face-offs during the extended man-advantage.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Coach Scott Sandelin isn't taking Minnesota Duluth's third consecutive trip to the Frozen Four championship game for granted because of how hard it is to get there.
The Minutemen had squandered a 3-1 lead in the third period and were now headed to overtime with Denver, and coach Greg Carvel did not like what he saw in the locker room heading to the extra session.
For Bulldogs senior wing Billy Exell, the hero in Thursday's 4-1 semifinal win over Providence and a three-time national championship game participant, history is far from what motivates him to win another national championship Saturday.
Filip Lindberg kept UMass afloat early as Minnesota Duluth carried the play for most of the period and led 1-0 at the first intermission. "To be able to do that at that time of the game was a big-time moment". "It was a ideal pass, right in my wheelhouse, flawless speed, so I just got a hold of it and it went in". With Chaffee ejected from the game and the Pioneers on another five-minute power play, they tested Lindberg late in the period, but didn't score.
Shepard had his seventh shutout of the season and nation-leading 29th victory, improving his NCAA Tournament record to 8-0.
"Marc's a hell of a hockey player, " said Carvel.
Now one of 35 coaches to win an NCAA title and one of 20 to win two or more, a third national championship would tie Sandelin with the giants of the sport, such as Boston University's Jack Parker, Michigan Tech legend John Macinnes, Wisconsin's "Badger" Bob Johnson, former RPI and Cornell coach Ned Harkness, John "Gino" Gasparini - Sandelin's former coach at North Dakota - and Minnesota's Herb Brooks.
The Bulldogs will face the victor of the UMass-Denver game in the national championship game on Saturday at 8 p.m.
MA will play for its first national championship on Saturday night.
Carvel would be the 11th coach to win the NCAA title and national coach of the year award in the same season, and eighth coach to win a national championship in his first NCAA tournament appearance. That was the big weakness of us in the game. "It's never easy. It doesn't always happen right away. I knew he would have a good year here". When they swept Providence - ranked No. 4/3 at the time - in November, people started to believe.
UMass' turnaround in the third set the stage for Del Gaizo's heroics. Exell was already driving to the net when he chipped a bouncing puck over Hawkey's out-stretched glove. He picked up the second penalty in breaking up a scoring chance by slashing Providence's Jack Dugan from behind while driving alone to the net. "In terms of Marc, you're able to get treatment whenever". "I said, 'Fellas, done". "We fully respect they're the defending champion".
"The faceoffs were the biggest weakness for us in the game", said Leaman, whose team lost 22-15 on the dot to UMD.
The special teams trouble was an issue for the Pioneers not just on Thursday, but all season, as their penalty kill and power play often struggled.
"You've just got to stay in it and just be ready to go at any minute", Keats said. Maybe a little bit on the bench. "We generated 16 shots on the power play, so I'm very happy with it. Credit their goaltender for making the stops".
The Friars tied the game at 1-1 with a power-play goal 11 seconds into a cross-checking minor against junior defenseman Nick Wolff.

But the sophomore is just part of the reason the unit came into the Frozen Four with a combined 38 goals. Friars associate head coach Ron Rolston made a homecoming after coaching the Buffalo Sabres spanning the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons.
