Minnesota-Duluth Rallies To Beat Maine 5-2

View Comments

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Jack Connolly, Caleb Herbert and Jake Hendrickson scored second-period goals as defending national champion Minnesota-Duluth rallied from a two-goal deficit for a 5-2 win over Maine on Saturday in the Northeast Regional.

The Bulldogs will face top-seeded Boston College on Sunday night in the regional final, a matchup of the past two NCAA champions. The Eagles won their 16th straight game earlier in the day, beating Air Force 2-0 on a pair of goals by Chris Kreider.

J.T. Brown added a third-period goal for the Bulldogs (25-9-6) and Hendrickson sealed it with an empty-netter in the final minute.

Spencer Abbott and Matt Mangene scored for Maine (23-14-3).
