Notre Dame Hockey: Irish Outdo Michigan Wolverines 3-2 in Overtime

The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Irish.


The Notre Dame Fighting Irish finished their series against the Michigan Wolverines Saturday in South Bend with a 3-2 OT win. Things had cooled between the two teams since Friday’s physical opener in which the Irish lost 5-1, but the Irish found their flow in the second period, in particular.

First Period

The Wolverines wasted no time getting after it on offense; Michigan’s Ethan Edwards nabbed the first goal of the night just about four minutes in.

Following a slashing call on Notre Dame’s Solag Bakich, Michigan’s Mackie Samoskevich doubled his team’s score on the power play as the period neared its end. By the end of the first, the Wolverines outshot the Irish 14-10.

Second Period

After about half a period of back and forth, Notre Dame’s Tyler Carpenter put the Irish on the board. As the clock ran down, Irish forward Chayse Primeau netted his team’s sole power play goal of the night after a call on Michigan for too many men on the ice.

Third Period

A roughing penalty on Michigan’s Luca Fantilli marked the only power play opportunity for either team in the third, but the Irish failed to capitalize.

The Irish outshot the Wolverines 13-9 in the period, but it wasn’t enough to snap the tie and the game headed into OT with a 2-2 score.


Notre Dame’s Grant Silianoff snagged a third goal for his squad to end the night 3-2, Irish.
