Down one end of the XL Center ice, Quinnipiac’s gloves and helmets were strewn all over from its celebration after claiming a third consecutive Connecticut Ice championship. On the other side, UConn men’s hockey had to take in the defeat after falling 4-3.

The Huskies have gotten used to the feeling. UConn has watched the Bobcats raise the CT Ice trophy three years in a row — even though it held a lead in each of the last two tournaments.

In 2023, the Huskies were up 3-2 entering the third period before Quinnipiac scored twice over the final 20 minutes to pull out the victory. On Saturday, UConn went up 3-1 in the second period only for the Bobcats to score three unanswered goals to take the title.

“Congratulations to Quinnipiac. They found a way to win it — again,” head coach Mike Cavanaugh said postgame.
