I was a goal off on my 3-1 prediction, but UMD finished off their post season run by defeating Michigan 3-2 on a pretty OT goal. What an amazing finish to the season as our Bulldogs bring home a national championship.
Much attention was paid to Minnesota-Duluth's dynamic top line of Jack Connolly, Justin Fontaine and Mike Connolly entering the Frozen Four, and rightfully so considering their 172 points this season were the most by any trio in college hockey.
Yet the Bulldogs have plenty of show horses, none more valuable than Kyle Schmidt.
Schmidt scored the goal Saturday night they'll be talking about for years in northern Minnesota, converting 3 minutes, 22 seconds into overtime to defeat Michigan 3-2 and give Minnesota-Duluth its first NCAA Division I men's hockey championship.
