Carvel could see the Minutemen's momentum sag entering the locker room after the third period.
"This is probably the coolest moment of my life", Del Gaizo said. "Right now, it seems like I'm dreaming". We're off to the national championship and that's all that matters. It's pretty insane. To be in three in a row, I would have given anything just to be in one, just to win one, just to play in one. He always does. But I'm not going to say he won the game. "I got on him and told him to shoot the puck; he didn't have a choice there".
The Minutemen used their lethal power play, ranked second in the country, to turn an early 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 lead in a blink of an eye.
Del Gaizo scored when Oliver Chau dug out a loose puck behind Denver's net and fed a pass into the left circle. A player for Denver was also ejected. It was a flawless read by Makar, who saw that Lindberg was expecting a one-timer and slid the puck to Chaffee, who had the entire net open. Gazio hesitated with the puck at center ice just long enough for Pioneers forward Ryan Barrow to level Del Gazio, drawing a five-minute penalty and a game misconduct for contact to the head. Del Gaizo one-timed the shot that beat Larsson inside the far post. Played two games for Muskegon in 2015-16 while with the New Jersey Rockets of the Eastern Hockey League (EHL) ... You work hard, get the right kids that fit in your program, you can have some success.
"If your team doesn't grow that toughness throughout the year, they don't have a chance this time of year".
The pace settled down at the end of the first period and into most of the second period before the game had its third ejection at the 16:12 mark. Denver's Ian Mitchell was cutting through the neutral zone when he was struck in the side of the head by Chaffee's right shoulder. The Tampa Bay Lightning draft pick scored twice in a span of 6 minutes, 42 seconds to erase a 3-1 hole. "Clayton, you're able to go into the gym whenever you want, regardless if it's our workout time or your individual time to go work", UMass sophomore Cale Makar said. Played in 59 games during the 2017-18 season ... And yet again, the Minutemen killed it off. The Pioneers had six players left from their 2017 championship team.
37 seconds after the Boeing penalty expired, Denver's Cole Guttman beat Lindberg high blocker to make the score 3-2. Mackay tied the game with 3:01 remaining and then scored 8:15 into overtime. The Minutemen evened the score on Bobby Trivigno's goal 25 seconds later.
"We thought we were winning the game", said Denver's Colin Staub.
The Bulldogs are leaning on the experiences gained in preparing to play their 12th tournament game in three years.
After play resumed for a few minutes, UMass head coach Greg Carvel called his timeout with 1:50 to play in the third. They were outshot 15-4 in the third period and 35-21 before overtime.
"And they've learned how to win some of those games", said Sandelin, who became the ninth coach to reach the championship game four times.
"It's incredible, I'll let it sink in later tonight", UMD senior captain Parker Mackay said. "Change. One goal. Next goal wins.' Give them credit, they came out and that's as resilient as you can be". Though expectations grew after a 17-20-2 finish a year ago, it wasn't until UMass split a two-game series at then-top-ranked Ohio State in October when the Minutemen began realizing their potential.
"I asked them to take a look at it", Carle said.
