BOSTON -- Connor Hellebuyck posted his second consecutive shutout in goal as UMass Lowell beat the University of New Hampshire, 4-0, in the Hockey East Tournament championship game at the TD Garden Saturday night.

The River Hawks won the Hockey East Tournament for the second straight season. Last year they advanced all the way to the Frozen Four.

Hellebuyck continued his mastery at the TD Garden, where he is unbeaten.

UMass Lowell will now wait to find out where it is seeded in the NCAA Division 1 Tournament, which will be announced Sunday.
