Montreal Canadiens: Jake Evans sends Notre Dame to the Frozen Four Finals

Montreal Canadiens: Jake Evans sends Notre Dame to the Frozen Four Finals

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. "I know, it sounds nearly criminal to grow up in Minnesota and not know how to skate, but that was me just seven years ago".

Glory was there for the taking.

Tanner Laczynski would convert on the power play in the third period for the Scarlet and Gray, but that would not be enough to counter the tallies by Louie Roehl and Jared Thomas.

The Buckeyes were left wondering, "what if?"

"(Faceoffs were) a point of emphasis all week in practice, believe it or not, because MI (dominated faceoffs) when we faced them earlier", said Notre Dame coach Jeff Jackson. "And we're going to come out and have that in the back of our mind that there's some unfinished business with Minnesota Duluth".

The win Thursday was the latest in a series of heart-stopping wins for Notre Dame. "They made a good play". The No. 1-seeded Irish have a ton to prove this year in the Frozen Four, but not as much as the conference they play in: the Big Ten.

"I owe Jeff Jackson a lot", UMD coach Scott Sandelin said.

Ohio State did so by not only taking care of business in Big Ten play, but by going 6-0-2 in nonconference play.

MI hockey coach Mel Pearson told Hayden Lavigne he no longer had to look over his shoulder as the team's starting goaltender. "To go into overtime and win a national championship, nothing could be more exciting than that".

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.

"My health has been very good", said Garner, who played hockey at Mayo and was on the Spartans' 1997 state-tournament team. Penn State's fledgling program made a second straight NCAA Tournament appearance. They started defending better, only allowing MI seven total shots in the period. This is the first time ever these two have met in the Frozen Four.




But the idea that the Bulldogs have won three tournament games as an underdog is not foreign.

Two charter planes carrying two different University of MI athletic teams crossed paths on the tarmac at Willow Run Airport on Tuesday.

"We've been battling all year to get a spot in the tournament, and it's great to see our team come together as one", he said.

MI faces a bit of an uphill battle here, but look for them to establish good puck movement from their defensemen to keep the big Notre Dame players moving all game.

The Irish need to make the most of their special teams chances.

Raabe scored 58 points (22 goals, 36 assists) in 58 games in the 2016-17 season with Wenatchee before enrolling at MI.

Gone from Columbus, Ohio, are Gust and the goaltender Raskob beat in OT, Matt Tompkins.

But with five minutes to play, freshman forward Mike Pastujov slashed one past Morris to tie the game at three.

"There was a lot leading up to it", said Kuhlman, who has 12 goals and five assists this year.

This reaction says it all as we at A Winning Habit were fired up for the goal.
