U-M Hockey Headed To Frozen Four
The University of Michigan basketball team isn't the only Maize and Blue team headed to the NCAA's national semifinals.
That's because on Sunday afternoon, the Michigan hockey team sealed their place to the Frozen Four with a convincing 6-3 victory over Boston University in the Northeast regional final in Worcester, Massachusetts.
The Wolverines broke a 3-3 tie in the third period with Jake Slaker's unassisted goal at 6:27. That was followed by a pair of goals two minute apart late in the period to clinch the game. Quinn Hughes, Tony Calderone, Brendan Warren, Nicholas Boka, and Nick Pastujov were the other Michigan goalscorers. Gaoalie Hayden Lavigne stopped 24 Terrier shots to get the win.
With the victory, the Wolverines head to the Frozen Four for the 25th time in their history. They will face Big Ten champion Notre Dame in the semifinals on April 5th in St. Paul, Minnesota's Xcel Energy Center. Minnesota-Duluth will face Ohio State in the other semifinal on the 5th.
