Edina native scores OT winner in Frozen Four as UMass tops UMD

Ex-Gopher Garrett Wait scored the winning goal.

Minnesota-Duluth will not three-peat as the men's college hockey national champion after falling in the Frozen Four to Massachusetts by a score of 3-2 in overtime Thursday night.

UMD dominated regulation only to be outplayed by UMass in overtime, with the Minutemen spending the majority of the extra session in the Bulldogs' zone, finally getting one past goalie Zach Stejskal a little more than 14 minutes into overtime. 

The winning goal was scored by Edina native Garrett Wait, who tapped in Bobby Trivigno's wraparound pass from the side of the net.

Wait played two years for the Gophers before transferring to UMass for his current junior season.  

UMass outshot UMD 13-2 in overtime, ending the Bulldogs' streak of nine straight overtime victories in the NCAA tournament. 

UMass and St. Cloud State will meet in Saturday's national championship game at 6 p.m. on ESPN. The Huskies beat Minnesota State-Mankato 5-4 earlier Friday. Neither SCSU nor UMass has won a men's college hockey national title.
