After one period of play in the NCAA Finals, Quinnipiac and Yale are scoreless. It was an intense, action-packed first period. It was a very physical period with penalties called on each team and some big hits. Quinnipiac senior defenseman Zach Tolkinen momentarily went to the locker room after a heavy hit, but returned to the bench. The Bobcats held the advantage in shots on goal at 10-9. Each team had some opportunities to score, but Yale's Jeff Malcolm and Quinnipiac's Eric Hartzell made some nice saves.
