UMD wins its first national men's ice hockey championship
ST. PAUL -- After 50 years of Division I hockey, Minnesota Duluth still had one small matter to settle Saturday night at Xcel Energy Center.
The Bulldogs had yet to win an NCAA Division I championship.
No. 5-ranked Michigan came into the title game as the NCAA leader with nine championships and had pushed through the Division I tournament by beating three straight Western Collegiate Hockey Association teams.
