Keys to the Game: Notre Dame vs Michigan Hockey

07 Апреля 2018

Ohio State had more than a handful of good looks that night, but nothing looked better than what stood before senior wing David Gust in overtime.

Glory was there for the taking.

It marked the fifth time in as many postseason games the Irish won a one-goal game with a score late.

The Buckeyes were left wondering, "what if?" We knew we had some good freshmen coming in.

IL is in the Big Ten queue for a potential expansion to eight teams, with fundraising in the works for a proposed new arena that would allow the university, which has a popular club team, to establish an NCAA Division I program.

The 2018 Frozen Four got underway Thursday in St. Paul, Minn., and it featured three Big Ten teams in semifinal action. Though the stakes are higher than usual this week, he won't change his daily routine, just as UMD's coaches and players won't change theirs.

The Bulldogs, meanwhile, are a No. 3 seed and the tournament's 12th overall seed. He played for Dave Esse and the Cloquet-Esko-Carlton Lumberjacks through his junior year and was coached by Jim Montgomery - now Denver's head coach - for parts of two seasons with the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the U.S. Hockey League.

"Props to the Big Ten". Despite the momentum boost, the Fighting Irish were in a good spot going into the third and didn't waste time proving it.

With the final seconds ticking off the clock in a tie game, Notre Dame senior forward Jake Evans received a pass from sophomore forward Cam Morrison and slid the puck past U-M sophomore goalie Hayden Lavigne with 5.2 seconds to break the tie.

"You gotta tip your cap to Duluth, but our guys felt we were on our heels right away", Ohio State coach Steve Rohlik said.

What didn't change, however, was the team's luck in the NCAA tournament. Dancs scored 17 seconds into the second period on a shot that went off a Notre Dame defenseman.

But this NCAA tournament, he doesn't needed to put up gaudy save totals because he hasn't needed to. It has failed to put a team in the Frozen Four since 2014 as the Hockey East and ECAC have consistently put teams in the Frozen Four. You take that group a year ago and who knows where we're headed?

"Honestly, I knew it was coming close to the end, and I was pretty exhausted, but I saw Cam [Morrison] flying down... and he's got really good speed, so I knew he was going to try and make a play, so I thought why not get one more shot", said Evans, on his game-winning tally.

"[I'm] real excited for our guys, how they've grown through the year and to be able to play in the final game of the year is pretty special", Sandelin said. "It's nice to have a chance again this year to play the same team". The storybook season, instead of the happy ending, had its pages slammed shut without warning. Roehl is one of five freshmen playing defense for the Bulldogs. Gone from Duluth are all three of that night's heroes, Raskob, Iafallo and Miska.

"It's been kind of an up-and-down year", said Garner, who turned 40 last month.

"Last goal we weren't too concerned", he said. "They had a couple of point-blank looks that Miska came up with enormous saves for us that kept us in the game".
