7:23 p.m. AND WE’RE BACK! I heard over the loudspeaker in the bathroom that this is the 87th overtime game in the history of the NCAA Tournament. It will also be Yale’s second OT tilt of their tourney. Jesse Root scored nine seconds into OT to lift the Bulldogs to an upset win over top-ranked Minnesota.
7:25 p.m. Already three big chances in this overtime period as both teams put shots on net. Yale has the puck in the UML zone and has already put up 3 big-time shots.
7:27 p.m. Not even three minutes into overtime and we’ve already had three “OHHHH!!!” reactions from the crowd. We’ve got a great one herein Pittsburgh.
7:28 p.m. Nice save from Hellebuyck as Carson Cooper unleashed a primo slap shot right from the slot. Shots are now an unbelievable 44-18 in favor of Yale. Frankly, it’s amazing that we’re in overtime now.
7:35 p.m. GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!! YALE WINS, 3-2!!! ANDREW MILLER!!!! AND YALE CELEBRATES RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE QU FANS!!
Amazing performance by Yale. They completely dominated this game and deserved to come out on top. Now Quinnipiac will look to make this a historic NCAA final. Unbelievable. Just unbelievable.
