The women’s hockey program at Clarkson University in rural Potsdam, New York has put the school in the national spotlight.

The Golden Knights have ended Minnesota’s two-year reign as NCAA hockey champions with a 5-4 win on Sunday in Hamden, Connecticut.

Clarkson, who ends the season at 31-5-5, is the first hockey team other than Minnesota, Wisconsin or Minnesota-Duluth to win the women’s national title.

#1-ranked Minnesota ends the season at 38-2-1 and had their 26-game winning streak snapped.

Shannon MacAulay scored on a breakaway down the ice in the third period with 4:16 to go for the game-winner. MacAulay also scored on a backhanded shot earlier in the contest. All told, she had two goals, two assists for Clarkson.

Members of the ECAC since 2003, Clarkson has a unique situation with Matt and Shannon Desrosiers serving as co-coaches.

For the past two months, the Columbus Blue Jackets have been in every game and have played playoff-style hockey which this town has been waiting for since the last playoff berth four years ago.

But on Sunday night in a key matchup versus Minnesota, they lacked energy and it cost them dearly.

The Wild used their energy to score two power-play goals in a 3-0 shutout before a dazed crowd of 15,909 at Nationwide Arena.

The loss ended the Blue Jackets’ 12-game home points streak (9-0-3), which is a franchise record.

The loss also hurt their playoff chances. The CBJ remain four points behind Detroit for the eighth playoff spot in the West and only nine games remaining in the season.

Columbus never really tested Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom with only 24 shots on goal.

The Blues simply have the Blue Jackets number

COLUMBUS, O. — The theme of the Columbus Blue Jackets thus far this season is S-L-O-W  S-T-A-R-T-S and head coach Todd Richards blasted the team earlier in the week in a loss at Minnesota.

So in Thursday’s home game against Central Division rival St. Louis, you’d expect a great game from the team against a hated rival?

The team did the opposite, again!

After playing well for the first three shifts of the game, the Blue Jackets found themselves trailing again 1-0 at the 2:19 mark as Blues defenseman Barret Jackman used screens by his teammates to float a puck past goalie Sergei Bobrovsky from the blueline.

St. Louis was not done yet.

Center Patrik Berglund scored at 10:23 on a power-play goal for a 2-0 advantage and Bobrovsky’s night was done when rookie right winger Vladimir Tarasenko scored a goal while falling backwards after running into CBJ defenseman James Wisniewski. An upset Richards had seen enough, as he put it in the postgame, “Sergei has to get better and I wanted to shock the team by switching goaltenders.”

Entering the game was Steve Mason, who the fans are lukewarm with due to his past failures, but on this night, he was a hero playing solid and confident stopping all 13 shots by the Blues.

The fourth goal by the Blues was scored by right winger David Backes, an empty-netter with 21 seconds to go.

Derick Brassard scored the Blue Jackets only goal

CBJ center Derick Brassard scored the lone CBJ goal on a power-play at 16;51 of the second period to make the score 3-1. The team could not get anything else past goalie Brian Elliott who always seems to beat Columbus as a backup goaltender.

The game had a common thread, the Blue Jackets lost to the Blues again, going 8-2 in the last 10, 5-2-0 at Nationwide Arena, 5-2-0 in the past 7 in Columbus and overall 31-25-13.

The game had several fights which are common in division games with several players getting game misconducts, Jared Boll of Columbus and Ryan Reaves of St. Louis.

Barret Jackman, one of the Blues' leaders got the team off to a good start on Thursday night

The crowd of 11,155 fans went left the arena unhappy again with the Blue Jackets dropping another home game.


*Barret Jackman, D, Blues: Got his team off to a good start in a road contest early.

*Brian Elliott, G, Blues: Survived on 25 shots allowing only one goal, but the CBJ kept him undersieged.

*Steve Mason, G, Blue Jackets: Looked quick in goal and confident. The only real bright spot from the game for the home team.

Mets appeal Dickey’s one-hitter; feels he had no-hitter

The New York Mets have filed an appeal with the commissioner’s office that their pitcher R.A. Dickey threw a no-hitter.

Dickey allowed an infield single on Wednesday night in the Mets 9-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

The team would like MLB to overturn the official scorer’s decision on a hit by B.J. Upton.

Major League Baseball can review official scoring decisions and reverse them if it feels an honest mistake was made.

In the first inning, Upton hit a high chopper that Mets’ third baseman David Wright could not field with his bare hand. The official scorer ruled it a hit.

The 37-year-old Dickey has had a rebirth in his career with the Mets after pitching for Texas, Seattle and Minnesota previously.
