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. He is one of three finalists for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award given annually to college hockey's top player.
Yale defeated the Frozen Four favorite UMass-Lowell 3-2 earlier in the night on an Andrew Miller overtime goal. Quinnipiac has defeated Yale three times this season including in the ECAC Consolation game three weeks ago.
