NCAA Frozen Four: North Dakota Loses to Minnesota In Final Second

If you were watching ESPN2 last night, you might have caught the incredible ending to the second Frozen Four semifinal game between North Dakota and Minnesota. Two hated hockey rivals who now play in separate conferences thanks to conference realignment.

North Dakota is on a power-play, and then this happened.
That's right.  Minnesota's Justin Holl scores a short-handed goal with just 0.6 seconds to defeat North Dakota 2-1.

Last second losses are nothing new for North Dakota, though. UNO did it in November 2010 when Alex Hudson scored just before the clock hit 0:00.0 to give the Mavs a 1-0 victory.

Note that the referee signals goal just a fraction of a second before the green light lights up to signal the clock has run out.


No wonder North Dakota fans drink heavily.
