Striving for the University's first-ever NCAA National Championship in any sport, the Clarkson Women's Hockey team will battle two-time defending National Champion University of Minnesota in the 2014 Frozen Four Championship game on Sunday afternoon.
The Golden Knights, who defeated Mercyhurst 5-1 in Friday's semifinal game, will face off against the Golden Gophers at 3:00 p.m. at the High Points Solutions Arena at the TD Bank Sports Center on the campus of Quinnipiac University. Minnesota (38-1-1) advances for their third consecutive showing in the national title game after defeating Wisconsin 5-3 in the other semifinal contest. The Knights and Minnesota are the only two teams in Division I women's hockey to reach the 30-win mark this season, and this is the first time Clarkson has ever won more than 28 games.
The Green and Gold stand at 30-5-5 overall and won the ECAC Hockey regular season title with a 16-2-4 conference mark. The Knights are 5-1 in postseason action this year with their only playoff blemish being a 1-0 loss to Cornell in the ECAC Hockey Tournament Championship game on March 9 at Cheel Arena.
