Yale beats UMass Lowell 3-2 in a Final Four overtime thriller (video)

After squandering a two-goal first period lead, Yale regrouped and held UMass Lowell in check for the rest of regulation with the Bulldogs ultimately beating the River Hawks by a score of 3-2 in a Frozen Four overtime thriller.

UMass Lowell’s Connor Hellebuyck made 44 saves but couldn’t stop Yale senior captain Andrew Miller, who scored 6:59 into the overtime session. With the semifinals win, Yale advances to the Men’s Division 1 National Championship Game on Saturday, where the team will take on either Quinnipiac or St. Cloud State, two teams that took the ice shortly after Yale’s win in Pittsburgh on Thursday night.
