Running on Empty: Minnesota-Duluth Tops Michigan in Overtime to Claim NCAA Hockey National Championship

“What a Year – When you sit down and think about it, really look at the year, this is a team that should be celebrated.

Upsetting the No.1 team in the country in the NCAA semis. It was awesome.”
