AFTER FILING two separate antitrust lawsuits against the league in different states, NBA players are consolidating their efforts and have turned to the courts in Minnesota as their chosen venue. A group of named plaintiffs including Carmelo Anthony, Steve Nash and Kevin Durant filed an amended federal lawsuit against the league in Minnesota yesterday, hoping the courts there will be as favorable to them as they have been to NFL players in the past. The locked-out players filed class-action antitrust suits against the league last Tuesday in California and Minnesota.

Perhaps Brian Dozier summed up his friend Art Layton's dilemma best when he said, "I'm sure his brain will be rattling. " According to Layton, it did exactly that. But the rattling is over. Last night, Layton, a 6-foot, 2-inch, 260-pound Chester lineman, was to announce that he will attend the University of Minnesota in the fall. The decision came after a trip to the University of Maryland last weekend, a trip that Layton said had only confused matters for him. "Sunday night, it was getting on my nerves a little trying to figure out where I would go, but I want to go to Minnesota," Layton said.

Shayne Gostisbehere hopped over the boards and raced to the corner of the rink as the Wells Fargo Center horn sounded. The Union College defender tossed his stick, gloves, and helmet into the air after the Dutchmen knocked off Minnesota, 7-4, in the championship game of the NCAA Frozen Four. He scattered his equipment on the ice alongside the gear of his teammates, who had done the same. The Flyers prospect started his week in Philadelphia with a Geno's cheesesteak and ended it with white confetti falling from the rafters of his likely future home.

So what can they possibly do for an encore? Thursday's 2014 Frozen Four semifinals, which produced Saturday night's championship matchup of Minnesota and Union, were as entertaining and dramatic as anything March Madness can produce. Union held on for a 5-4 win over Boston College when a last-second Eagles shot bounded off its goalie's chest. And Minnesota topped that, scoring the winning shorthanded goal in their 2-1 triumph over North Dakota just before the final horn sounded.

The puck journeyed just to the left of one North Dakota defender, then another, then past the left leg pad of the goalie, inches inside the post - into Frozen Four history. Replays showed Minnesota defenseman senior Justin Holl's game-winning shorthanded goal Thursday night - "a good bounce of the puck," as the losing coach put it - crossed the line with six-tenths of a second left, propelling the Golden Gophers into the NCAA title game Saturday night with a 2-1 win over North Dakota.

The greatest rivalries start with this: Each participant considers the other its biggest foe. That applies Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center, when a pair of traditional college hockey powers, North Dakota and Minnesota, meet in the 8:30 nightcap of the Frozen Four doubleheader, after Union College plays Boston College. Asked to explain their far-off rivalry to locals, Minnesota coach Don Lucia mentioned the Eagles and Giants. "That's probably a good rivalry," he said. North Dakota has won seven NCAA titles.

NICK MATTSON'S first memory of one of college hockey's greatest rivalries dates to when he was in fourth or fifth grade. Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard pulled a North Dakota player's jersey over his head, skated up the ice and banged in a rebound to win the game. Raised in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen, Mattson was a Minnesota fan back then. As were - and are - all of his friends. But a few years later, a trip to the Golden Gophers' Mariucci Arena to see a game featuring UND's Jonathan Toews and T.J. Oshie started to change that.

THESE BITTER rivals had met in the Frozen Four twice before. Each won once, Minnesota claiming the 1979 national title game, North Dakota earning bragging rights in the 2005 semifinals. The rivalry's latest chapter will surely be deposited into the instant classic category. With a mere six-tenths of a second remaining in regulation, Minnesota defenseman Justin Holl flicked a shot off the right post and into the net to send the Golden Gophers past North Dakota, 2-1, and into tomorrow night's national championship game.
