“Eden Prairie senior Kyle Rau emerged from a pileup of players in front of the Wayzata goal with the puck, and he promptly deposited it underneath a sliding Trojans defenseman and into an empty net to lift the Eagles to a 4-3 double overtime triumph over Wayzata on Wednesday, March 2, in the Section 6AA championship at Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis.
Rau, one of 10 finalists for the annual Mr. Hockey award and a University of Minnesota recruit, scored with 7:41 left in the 17-minute second overtime. The game started several minutes after its scheduled 8 p.m. face-off, ended around 11 p.m. and lasted 68 minutes, 19 seconds of elapsed time.
Junior Mario Lucia and senior Bryan Tabery scored in the third period as Wayzata (20-6-2), the section’s No. 2 seed, rallied from a 3-1 deficit to send the game into overtime.”
