ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Erik Haula scored his 20th goal of the season, Taylor Matson added a goal and assist and No. 2 seed Minnesota beat top-seed North Dakota 5-2 to win the NCAA West Regional on Sunday.

Ben Marshall, Travis Boyd and Nate Condon also scored for Minnesota (28-13-1), which advanced to the Frozen Four for the first time since 2005. Kent Patterson made 24 saves for the Gophers.

Danny Kristo and Mario Lamoreaux scored for North Dakota (26-13-3) and Aaron Dell finished with 19 saves in goal.

Minnesota held on to its three-goal lead, something it wasn’t able to do a week earlier against UND in the WCHA playoffs.
