A look at Michigan's hockey season that ended in Frozen Four

UMD (23-16-3) faces Ohio State (26-9-5) at 5 p.m. Thursday in the first national semifinal game at Xcel Energy Center.

The Ohio State women's hockey team also made the Frozen Four this season, before losing 1-0 in overtime to Clarkson in the semifinals.

They'll face off on Saturday night against the victor of the Michigan - Notre Dame game.

Just three minutes into their 2-1 win over Ohio State on Thursday night in the Frozen Four, the Bulldogs had a pair of game-changing goals from Louie Roehl and Jared Thomas.

Michigan, Notre Dame and Ohio State all represented the Big Ten, guaranteeing the conference a berth in Saturday's National Championship.

MI finishes the season 22-15-3, but most in the college hockey world didn't think that was possible after the team was picked to finish sixth in the Big Ten.

Blaine high school graduate Riley Tufte, a first round pick of Dallas, is UMD's leading goal scorer, while UMD defenseman Mikey Anderson played at Hill-Murray high school.

All that has come in just the most recent weeks. This is the team's first season without Berenson behind the bench - he retired after 32 seasons as Wolverines head coach. When we've needed him the most, he's elevated his play to lift our team up and show them the way.

Prince Philip Out of Surgery After Successful Hip Replacement
During Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in June 2012, he was hospitalized for a bladder infection. Figures for the United Kingdom , excluding Scotland, show 851 people over 90 had a hip replacement in 2016.

"My health has been very good", said Garner, who played hockey at Mayo and was on the Spartans' 1997 state-tournament team. "I think being announced captain just being a senior and getting to see some of these younger guys was truly special".

The Frozen Four is the final two rounds of the NCAA Division 1 mens ice hockey tournament. I couldn't be prouder of them and to hear them say (that this was the best year of their lives).

But, since Notre Dame is involved, a one-goal game is likely to be part of the equation. Romeo's ability to settle in and turn away a number of looks kept the game close and set up a thrilling finish. "We're good on our gaps, our guys are up on their guys and there aren't a lot of lanes for them to shoot".

MI (22-15-3) led 1-0 after the first period on a Tony Calderone goal, and doubled its lead just 17 seconds into the middle period when Dexter Dancs banked a shot off the body of Irish defenseman Dennis Gilbert. We've been in these situations where if we go into overtime we're still going to be battling as hard as we can. "We rely on them to play a lot of quality minutes defensively, but I think Dennis especially has the ability to do more than that". "Staying in a routine is probably the biggest thing for me and just be ready to go Saturday".

"I was on the post and I gave the guy in front of me a quick shoulder check", Shepard said. Evans just happened to be the one to get that chance.

With Morris and Lavigne both notching nine saves in the first, there wasn't much that differentiated both teams, only further securing the fact that the game would be won with sweat and, for one team, tears.

MI arguably had better quality scoring chances late in the third period, but that didn't matter when all was said and done.
