TAMPA, Fla. — Quinnipiac goalie Michael Garteig raised his arms in triumph and bounced on his skates in front of the Bobcats' net.
The 3-2 victory over Boston College on Thursday night sent the tiny Connecticut school at the foot of Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden to the NCAA hockey title game for the second time in four years.
And it took every one of Garteig's 34 saves for the Bobcats to advance.
"Garzie is a winner. All year long he has been going up head to head with the top goalies in the country, and he finds a way to win," Quinnipiac coach Rand Pecknold said. "That's what he does."
