Gophers women's hockey advances to NCAA championship game

March 22, 2019 08:25 PM

Nicole Schammel scored off a rebound midway through the second period and goalie Alex Gulstene made it stand, lifting Minnesota over Cornell 2-0 Friday to earn a spot in the NCAA championship game.
    
Sarah Potomak scored an empty-net goal in the final minute of the Frozen Four game. The Golden Gophers will play Wisconsin on Sunday. Minnesota is seeking its eighth national championship and hasn't played in the final since 2016.
    
Gulstene stopped 16 shots in a perfect effort to back Schammel's goal moments after a Minnesota power play expired. Cornell entered the game killing penalties at better than 90 percent.
