Dominant Denver beats Notre Dame 6-1 in Frozen Four semis

Dominant Denver beats Notre Dame 6-1 in Frozen Four semis

A great season came to an ugly end for the Notre Dame hockey team as the Irish Icers fell to #1 Denver 6-1 in the Frozen Four semifinals Thursday night at the United Center in Chicago.

"The games we had there, I think you can gain something from them", UMD coach Scott Sandelin said. "I'm just amazed at the effort our team produced in a big-time game against a really, really good college hockey team".

Denver will take on the University of Minnesota-Duluth in the national title game on Saturday night.

This will be the 3rd matchup between the two teams, splitting a series in December.

So this week, the number one Pios have been preparing for their next opponent, Notre Dame. The Bulldogs did it in dramatic fashion with a tiebreaking goal with 26.6 seconds remaining, while Denver took all the intrigue out early with a thrashing of Notre Dame.

However, some of the players on this top-ranked hockey team are still holding on to some emotions from last year's semifinal finish. This creates a different style of play, and teams familiar with the Olympic sheet have at least that advantage going for them. The Bulldogs won 3-1 the next night thanks to goals by senior wing Kyle Osterberg, sophomore wing Billy Exell and freshman wing Joey Anderson (empty net), plus 38 saves by freshman goaltender Hunter Miska. Borgstrom popped in the rebound. They don't give you an inch.

"I think it comes from the old money, and that rich people like to eat cake", VanVoorhis said with a laugh. Evan Janssen fed Tariq Hammond, who scored easily to make it 3-0. With a team packed with returnees, their goal this season was getting back to the Frozen Four and taking care of business.

Notre Dame was simply no match for a determined and motivated Denver team in its 10th national championship game for the first time since 2005 when George Gwozdecky was coach.

Apple To Develop Its Own Graphics Chips; UK Partner's Stock Plummets
Up until now, Apple has been licensing the PowerVR graphics processors to power up the iPhone and iPad's gaming capabilities. The news was announced Monday by Imaginations Technologies , the company who now makes the graphic chips for the iPhone.

The Pioneers did the same thing in the regionals to Western Collegiate Hockey Association playoff champion Michigan Tech - Denver led 4-0 after one period against the Huskies - and to a lesser extent against Penn State of the Big Ten.

"I felt we were turning a corner and then we had a defenseman fall down", Jackson said on the third goal. "We struggled with some turnovers in the neutral zone".

"The first time he's let it go on most of the goaltenders, I'm talking great goaltenders in the NCHC. he puts it by them", Montgomery said. Despite falling a game short of a Hockey East championship appearance, a 23-win season was more than enough to secure a bid. But the game was still too far out of reach, and at 16:42 Denver cemented its spot in the national championship as Gambrell added a second goal off a shot that glanced in off Petersen's skate.

Notre Dame has four players on its roster from the town, but Ostlie is the one VanVoorhis knows really well.

After trading first-period goals, Harvard and Minnesota-Duluth seemed destined for overtime. He starred for Team USA in January when the Americans won the gold medal in the World Junior Hockey Championships.
