The Irish headed up North to take on the Michigan State Spartans. Notre Dame nearly took it to the last minute to tie it at one goal each, but got the extra conference point in the second OT.

First Period

The first twenty minutes were scoreless, but the Irish proved themselves the most agressive of the two teams on offense. The guys in gold and blue outshot the Spartans 9-3 in the first and at one point in the game doubled the Spartans shots on goal 68-34.

Second Period

After the two squads had moved on from a first period deadlock, It was Michigan State’s Sam Saliba who claimed the first goal of the game in the second period.

Third Period

In the final 20 minutes, the Irish pulled Cale Morris from the net to get an extra attacker on the ice. Michael Graham got the Irish on the board with a goal and extended the game.

OT

The Irish defense said “not today,” and one OT just wasn’t enough.

Second OT

Tory Dello came through for the Irish in a shootout and chalked up the last point to get the advantage in the B1G standings.
