In the ECAC semifinals Friday afternoon, Cornell goalie Matthew Galajda (undrafted) pitched a 30-save shutout of the Bears to lead the Big Red to a berth in the ECAC finals against Clarkson. Tristan Mullin (undrafted) lead Cornell offensively with a goal and an assist.

On Saturday night, Mullin notched the equalizer in the 3rd to force overtime after a pair of 1st period power-play markers from Devin Brosseau (undrafted) had given the Golden Knights the 2-1 lead. Brosseau set up Chris Klack (undrafted) for the OT game winner for Clarkson and the 2019 ECAC tournament championship. The goal itself was controversial, the result of an un-whistled offsides, but one that was non-reviewable because the Golden Knights had briefly brought the puck back into the neutral zone. The game-winner was scored on Cornell goalie Austin McGrath (undrafted), seeing his first action in 5 weeks when he had to relieve Galajda in OT after Galajda was bizarrely injured when the goal fell onto his back during play.

Both teams will certainly earn a berth in the NCAA tournament when the tournament selections will be televised on ESPNU Sunday night, March 24.
