Yale's hockey team will be returning to the school's ice rink one more time this season to celebrate its first NCAA championship.

Today's rally at Ingalls Rink is scheduled for 5 p.m. The doors open at 4 p.m.

The Bulldogs beat in-state rival and top-ranked Quinnipiac 4-0 in Saturday's title game, after having lost to the Bobcats three times this season. They also beat the two other top seeds to claim the title.

Yale has been playing hockey since 1896, but had reached the national semifinals just once before in 1952.

The NCAA title is the first for the school in any sport since the swim team won one in 1953.
