Syracuse Rallies for First Lead and Victory over Denver at 0:19

After Maltz's go-ahead goal, Denver won the faceoff and called a timeout with seven seconds remaining. The Pioneers triggered play, but never got off a shot and the Orange advanced to the NCAA title game for the 17th time in its illustrious history.

Law led the Pioneers with three goals. Adamson had two.

Syracuse outshot Denver 40-24 for the game and held a 24-23 edge in ground balls.

The Orange improved its record in NCAA semifinal games to 17-10 and the team is 65- 21 in the NCAA Tournament overall.

Game Notes: The Orange advances to the NCAA title game for the first time since 2009 when it defeated Cornell, 10-9, in overtime to win its record 11th NCAA national championship ... Syracuse's 16 wins this season ties the school record ... The Orange also won 16 games in 1922, 2008 and 2009 ... Desko improved to 31-8 all-time in the NCAA Tournament and 14-5 in head-to-head coaching match-ups with Bill Tierney ... Syracuse is now 7-3 in one-goal games this season and 5-1 this year when trailing after three quarters.
