"We're not going to the beach, we're not going to the pool, we're not going jetskiing. We're here to win a hockey game... we'll enjoy this win in late April, May and June. We can enjoy it all summer, but right now we have to start reloading and getting ready for a good Minnesota team," Pecknold said.
Thursday night's win marked Quinnipiac's 33rd of the season, a new program record for the Bobcats.
Puck drop for Saturday night's National Championship is slated for 8 p.m.
Quinnipiac has never won a national title in men's ice hockey.
