There's nothing quite like an overtime, sudden death hockey win, especially in the most meaningful of games. That's exactly what happened in the NCAA Championship at the Frozen Four as Michigan and Minnesota-Duluth headed into overtime knotted at two. Both teams were exhausted from three hard-fought periods, but laid it on the line with the NCAA's biggest prize up for grabs.
And just a few minutes into the overtime period, it was mayhem as Minnesota-Duluth found the back of the net to end the game and take home the NCAA title. Check out the video of the game-winning goal, courtesy of Bubba Prog.
The goal itself came on a scramble as Minnesota-Duluth came up with the puck in a dangerous position. Kyle Schmidt got free in front of the net, banging the puck home to give his team the walk-off victory in what has to be the most thrilling way possible in the sport of hockey.
The goal was amazing, but the celebration was even better. It was pure jubilation as Schmidt made a snow angel while sliding down the ice. His teammates followed, joining in on the action and basking in the glow of a thrilling victory. Yes, there's nothing quite like an sudden-death win, especially in a championship game.
