So Yale never had a chance against Quinnipiac. Luckily, the Bulldogs didn’t listen.
Yale won the Frozen Four tonight, beating the QU Bobcats 4-0. Goaltender Jeff Malcolm had the 36 save shutout and captain Andrew Miller scored on a breakaway to make it 3-0. Miller, who scored the game winner in OT on Thursday was the tournament Outstanding Player.
Quinnipiac, which had a phenomenal season, just couldn’t quite get things going, and when they did have scoring chances the puck wouldn’t find the net.
Yale played a good game, throwing the Bobcats off their tempo, and made the most of their opportunities. They are the first 15th Seed to win the title. In their playoff run, they beat the second, seventh, third, and number one seed. Certainly deserving of the title.
Congrats to the Yale Bulldogs for an impressive playoff run, and their first national title in hockey.
