2014 Frozen Four: Semifinals

Thatcher_DemkoPHILADELPHIA — No one could ask for two more phenomenal semifinals games than what they got Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

Union College, who people seem to want to throw the underdog title on even though they are the team with the most wins coming into the tournament, ended Boston College‘s streak of even-year wins with a 5-4 victory.

The second game of the night didn’t even have half of the goals the other one did, but instead was a battle of goaltenders between the University of Minnesota and the University of North Dakota, with sophomore Adam Wilcox coming out on top. It featured a thrilling end with the game-winning goal coming with 0.6 seconds left in the game, sending the Minnesota on to fight for its sixth national title.
