CHICAGO -- The University of Denver men's hockey team advanced to the NCAA championship game with a 6-1 win over Notre Dame at the Frozen Four on Thursday night.

The Pioneers will go for their eighth national championship on Saturday night.

“I don’t know what to say, I’m amazed at the effort our team produced in a big time moment," coach Jim Montgomery said.

Denver’s offense was plentiful, with goals from Emil Romig, Evan Ritt, Tariq Hammond, Dylan Gambrell, Henrik Borgstrom and Evan Janssen. Goalie Tanner Jaillet registered 16 saves.

Denver (32-7-4) will face Minnesota Duluth (28-6-7) for the championship at 6 p.m. Saturday.
