Minnesotans Hoping to Lead Minnesota-Duluth to Hockey National Championship


Perhaps it will always be that way.

MI finishes the season 22-15-3, but most in the college hockey world didn't think that was possible after the team was picked to finish sixth in the Big Ten. With AP Photos.Louie Roehl and Jared Thomas scored in the first 3:04 and Minnesota Duluth held off Ohio State 2-1 night to reach the NCAA championship game for the second straight year. They got a couple of teams in previous year. Despite the momentum boost, the Fighting Irish were in a good spot going into the third and didn't waste time proving it.

Jake Evans scored his second goal of the game with 5.2 seconds left and Notre Dame beat MI 4-3 on Thursday night in the Frozen Four semifinals.

Notre Dame faces Minnesota-Duluth for the national championship Saturday at 7:30 PM ET.

"I knew there was a little bit of time left and thought I'd give it one last rush", said Evans.

"We lost seven (seniors), and three guys left early to the National Hockey League". "A lot of those guys on the UMD team are from northern Minnesota, and it's just a really special opportunity to come together with the Irish, and hopefully we can really do something sweet tomorrow night".

"We knew we'd have some growing pains, too".

Though OSU increasingly sustained offensive pressure as the game went on, Shepard seemed to tighten the seal on his net more and more. "When they came back and we got healthy, the guys gained a lot of confidence". After going 23-16-3 during the regular season, the Bulldogs put together close wins over Minnesota State and Air Force to advance to this stage. The Irish are seeking their first hockey national championship. Following some tests in Duluth, he was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome, which in his case was a precursor to leukemia. "I expect it to be the same thing because we've got tremendous fans".

Garner was referred to an oncologist in Duluth, who referred him to specialists at Mayo Clinic to treat his MDS.

"He's the loudest and most energetic, and he's just fun to be around", Evans said. "They made a good play". I couldn't be prouder of them and to hear them say (that this was the best year of their lives). I'm still on a steady stream of drugs, but I feel decent most days. "I got a big chunk of it and it kind of slipped through".

Garner's long-term outlook is positive, and his energy has been boosted by the Bulldogs' somewhat unlikely run to the Frozen Four.

The Bulldogs earned another chance to show the world that they're, possibly, the best team in the game on Saturday night. The Bulldogs were the last at-large entrant to make the 16-team NCAA field. The victor will take on the victor of Ohio State and Minnesota-Duluth for the national championship Saturday night. We can all surprise you and have a 5-4 game. It's us against three Big Ten teams. But it's a team that just really stays with the game. "Their system, the youth level, in high school, they do a tremendous job in their development and skill".

Jackson said he knows the challenge MI will present to his team Thursday. And I'll support the guys. "And I was pretty exhausted".
