ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Brock Nelson and Carter Rowney scored 46 seconds apart in the first period for North Dakota in a 4-0 victory over Denver on Saturday, giving the Fighting Sioux their third straight WCHA playoff championship.

Michael Parks added a power-play goal in the second period and Aaron Dell made 22 saves for his ninth career shutout to improve to 6-0 in WCHA playoff games over three seasons with the Fighting Sioux (24-13-3).

Mark MacMillan’s short-handed breakaway shot in the third period knocked the water bottle off the top of the net and sealed their seventh consecutive victory overall and 13th WCHA playoff win in a row.

The Pioneers (25-13-4) watched North Dakota take the Broadmoor Trophy in the title tilt for the second year in a row.
