ITHACA, New York — The Quinnipiac Bobcats are going to the ECACHL Final Four after beating Cornell 3-2 on Saturday to sweep their best of three series at hostile Lynah Rink.
Ben Nelson scored the game winning goal with 4:21 left in the third period, nearing the end of a 5 minute major penalty against Cornell’s Raymond Sawada for boarding Bobcats defenseman Sami Liimatanen. After starting the weekend by going 0-12 on the man advantage, the Bobcats finally put home a power play goal, and it turned out to be the game winner. It was also Nelson’s 50th collegiate goal.
The win also gives Quinnipiac another 20-win season. It is their 8th 20 win season in the last 9 years.
The Bobcats advance to the ECACHL Final Four at the Times Union Center in Albany, N.Y. The Bobcats will play top-ranked St. Lawrence in the first game of Friday’s session at 4:30.
