UMass hockey wins 1st national title by dominating St. Cloud State

PITTSBURGH - The second time around, the UMass hockey team ensured it finished the job.

The Minutemen won their first-ever national championship Saturday night, dominating St. Cloud State, 5-0. The game was in hand for the entire third period, so they had an opportunity to savor the accomplishment before the final horn blew when they piled on goalie Filip Lindberg.

"It's crazy. It's literally unbelievable. I'm so happy for this group," UMass junior Bobby Trivigno said. "Watching the clock tick down, we earned this win for sure. I'm just so happy to be part of it. So happy to be part of a great program. And it's just the best feeling in the world right now."

UMass was shut out by Minnesota Duluth in 2019 but didn't take long to light the lamp and trigger firework showers at PPG Paints Arena.

Hat tip, WBZ

I thought I'd give the Daily Hampshire Gazette a big surprise.

From the Associated Press:

UMass beats St. Cloud State 5-0 to win first NCAA men's hockey title

Associated Press 10:04 PM ET

PITTSBURGH -- Filip Lindberg had 25 saves, Aaron Bohlinger scored his first career goal and Massachusetts beat St. Cloud State 5-0 on Saturday night to win the program's first NCAA men's hockey title.

After a St. Cloud State turnover, Bohlinger led a breakaway and dropped the puck to Ryan Sullivan, whose one-touch pass set up Bohlinger's one-timer to open the scoring about 7 minutes into the game. Reed Lebster's wrap-around goal with about a minute left in the first gave the Minutemen a 2-0 lead.

UMass (20-5-4), which extended its unbeaten streak to a program-record 14 games, made its third NCAA tournament appearance. The Minutemen lost 3-0 to Minnesota Duluth -- which UMass beat in Thursday's semifinals -- in the 2019 title game. The 2020 Frozen Four was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

David Hrenak had 17 saves for St. Cloud State (20-11-0), which made the program's first title game appearance. ... "It was closer than the score," UMass coach Greg Carvel said. "We were opportunistic."
