History-making season comes to a close

And it’s a final here in Cincinnati: North Dakota 6, Northeastern 2. The Huskies struck first in the third period on a goal from Matt Benning, assisted by Mike McMurtry and Kevin Roy, at 5:25. North Dakota though closed out the scoring with a late goal at 16:28. In an ironic twist, the 6-2 final matches the score from the last time Northeastern and North Dakota met in the NCAA tournament. That was in 1982.

Following the traditional handshake line, the Huskies raised their sticks in the air, acknowledging the Northeastern fans who stood and cheered, before leaving the ice for the locker room.
