Quinnipiac is on the verge of guaranteeing an all-Connecticut, ECAC final in the NCAA Championship Game Saturday night at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh. The Bobcats lead St. Cloud State 4-1 with 15:40 to go in the third period. The Bobcats have been buzzing all night and senior goaltender Eric Hartzell has made some incredible saves.
