Denver University Crowned NCAA Frozen Four Champions

[Via University of Denver Athletics]
Freshman Paul Stastny scored twice, giving the Pioneers the lead in the second period and then supplementing it in the third as they defeated North Dakota 4-1 Saturday. Denver became the seventh team to earn two straight titles with a solid 44-save performance in goal from freshman Peter Mannino, the Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player.
Congratulations to the team that wasn't really the heavily favored in this year's NCAA tournament.

It's surprising that they took out the North Dakota squad which has skyrocketed to becoming a hockey hotbed of young talent in America. Look out Minnesota and Boston area! The playing field just got evened out!
