St. Cloud State blanked by UMass in national championship game

Minnesota had three teams in the Frozen Four but didn't claim the national title.

Three teams from Minnesota entered the Frozen Four and none skated away with the national championship trophy in the men's college hockey tournament. 

Saint Cloud State lost to Massachusetts 5-0 in the national championship game Saturday night in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 

UMass scored twice in the first period and two more times in the second period to take a commanding lead into the final 20 minutes, where they added another goal and kept the Huskies off the board for the shutout victory. 

The Minutemen earned the first national title in its men's hockey program's history, while the Huskies fell shy of winning the first national championship in school history. 

The Huskies reached the title game after defeating Minnesota State-Mankato 5-4 in the national semifinals on Thursday. Minnesota-Duluth, the two-time defending champions, lost to UMass 3-2 in overtime in the Frozen Four. 

UMass lost to UMD in last year's national title game.
