It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.
At least it is for Norwich under first-year coach Cam Ellsworth.
The third-seeded Cadets (20-5-2) advanced to yet another NEHC championship game by beating third-seeded Babson, 5-3, in Saturday’s semifinals at Kreitzberg Arena. Junior Taeron Lewis and freshman Brett Ouderkirk each had a goal and an assist to lead the offense, while co-Player of the Year in the league Tom Aubrun made 28 saves.
After starting the season 6-4-1 and dropping out of the national rankings, Norwich has gone 16 games without a loss, a streak that includes 12 straight wins.
