Philadelphia, PA (NNCNOW.com) --- Justin Holl scored a short-handed goal with 0.6 seconds left in regulation to lift Minnesota past North Dakota 2-1 at the NCAA Frozen Four semifinals on Thursday night at the Wells Faro Center in Philadelphia, Pa.

It was Holl's first goal of the season. Sam Warning put the Gophers up a goal midway through the third period before North Dakota answered 32 seconds later thanks to Connor Gaarder.
