Overview

On April 13, 2013, two teams separated by less than eight miles in southern Connecticut played before a packed house in Pittsburgh and a national TV audience for college hockey’s national championship. Quinnipiac and Yale, different in so many ways, had one thing in common other than geography: Both proved doubters wrong, topping traditional heavyweights on their way to the title game. The game’s result was perhaps as surprising as the season itself: Yale, a heavy underdog and one of the last teams to get into the NCAA tournament, routed topseeded Quinnipiac 4-0. Hockey Haven, written by New Haven Register reporters Chip Malafronte and Jim Shelton, tells the inside story of how skill, hard work and smart planning brought the two teams to that night in Pittsburgh.

Good recap of the 2012-13 season for two schools that don't have much in common other than both being located in New Haven.  College hockey fans will enjoy the book as it tells of how both Yale and Quinnipiac built their respective programs to get to the 2013 championship game.  The only downfall of the book is that the chapter of that game is far too short.  For all the build up to the game a little more time could have been spent on describing everything from both locker rooms for that moment.  Otherwise a solid book on a topic in which it is hard to find a book.
