UMass senior Garrett Wait – the only Minutemen born in Minnesota in a Frozen Four with three teams from the land of 10,000 lakes – sent UMass back to the national championship game with an overtime winner on Thursday in the PPG Paints Arena.

Bobby Trivigno worked the puck around the back of the net and then found Wait on the other side of the gate for a tip. « Most of the credit goes to Bobby, » said UMass coach Greg Carvel. “We tried to wear them down. Use our feet. You just ran it. Well done. « 

The Minutemen beat Minnesota Duluth 3-2 and will take on St. Cloud State for the national championship at 7:00 pm. Saturday.

UMass dominated the overtime with a devastating pre-check The Minutemen, who lived in the Minnesota Duluth Zone, pummeled Bulldogs goalkeeper Zach Stejskal. They left the Bulldogs 13-2 after regulation.

« I think Duluth is out of gas because they haven’t have rolled four lines. But I think we did even better, ”said Carvel. “The special thing about this team is that they know what they are doing well. When they smelled blood in the water, I thought they had made it a little better. “

The best chance for the Bulldogs was Tanner’s loading route, but UMass was chasing him. The Minnesota Duluth fans in the building wanted a sentence and booed insatiable.

« I mean, this is hockey. I think I had a step on him, ”said Laderoute. “He may have messed me up a bit, but the Frozen Four are working overtime. You cannot ask for calls at this point. “

UMass didn’t have to kill many penalties, but it canceled the one man-up advantage it gave the Bulldogs.

The Minutemen didn’t whistle for a penalty the entire game, then Zac Jones became Asked for a cross check at 1:19, so UMass was without one of his best defenders and top penalties as the season was in limbo.

Minnesota Duluth scored a golden opportunity, but Matt Murray just kicked the puck hard that he sent him far to the left. It was one of 36 saves Murray made on his NCAA tournament debut, the most since his first season. Murray played for the first time since January 18 since goalkeeper Filip Lindberg started due to COVID-19 logs.

“It’s a great feeling. Obviously, hockey is the best thing you can do in the world. And it’s great to have such an amazing group of people to share that kind of feeling with, ”said Murray. “And as I said, they really did their part. It was a great team game. And yes, it was a great experience to be back on the ice. “

Lindberg, Carson Gicewicz, Jerry Harding and Henry Graham did not travel to Pittsburgh as they were viewed as close contacts with a COVID-19 positive. UMass announced that Lindberg, Gicewicz and Graham have cleared the protocols, will be rejoined on Friday and will be eligible to play on Saturday.

« I’m just glad to bring the band back together, » said Murray. « I think it will be hard work and a smile when everyone comes back. »

After Murray saved the UMass season with that kick-save, Minnesota Duluth asked Kobe Roth to do his own cross-check . Even the skaters had 46.6 seconds left by four each and sent UMass into overtime for the second time in a row. The Minutemen defeated Denver 4: 3 in extra time in 2019.

Anthony Del Gaizo made sure that the Mintuemen reached the extra limit in the third period. The junior replaced Gicewicz in the front row to start the game. Working at the back of the net, Del Gaizo nudged the puck shortly after attempts by Trivigno and Josh Lopina were denied. That made it 2-2 with 11:32 left.

« That’s what we hoped for from him. And that was the biggest, probably biggest, goal for us of the year – even bigger than the overtime target since the overtime target was a possibility, ”said Carvel. “But we needed this goal in the third period. It gave us a big bump and we never returned from there. “

Cole Koepke gave Minnesota Duluth a 2-1 lead by following the advice of any coach: he put the puck in the net and followed his shot. After rolling around the net, Matt Murray saved his original attempt. The puck jumped straight back to Kopek, who found a hole and the back of the net. Noha Cates and Nick Swaney helped with the play.

UMass almost cashed in immediately after Minnesota Duluth made sales, but Stejskal was able to stop Reed Lebster’s direct one-timer.

« Duluth is the best team that we played this year. They play a really tough style that we’re not used to, ”said Carvel. “We had problems with it for two periods. I don’t know if frustration is the right word, but what we usually do just didn’t work out. And so after the second period I really asked the players to realize that it was going to take longer. “

Two UMass players were dragged onto the ice at the start of the first half of Minnesota Duluth’s physical play, but the Bulldogs were not whistled for a penalty. Then at 2:57 p.m., Load Route Trivigno sent the Minutemen to the power game.

It didn’t take them long to capitalize on it. Oliver Chau drove the puck on the blue line to Matthew Kessel and then sent it over the ice to his defense partner. Jones, a prospect from the New York Rangers, searched the upper right corner of the net around a screen from Jake Gaudet 36 seconds after the man advantage.

This meant that the Minutemen were 4:27 1-0 ahead in the first half. The tour lasted only 2:17. Laderoute atone for his earlier mistake by poking the puck as it sat in the crease after Quinn Olson pushed him behind Murray after rolling around from the back of the net. Connor Kelley also recorded a template for the game.
