The Notre Dame Fighting Irish hockey team took to the road last night to open a road series with the Ohio State Buckeyes. Notre Dame was able to grab a lead in the second period before Ohio State tied it. The Buckeyes rallied late to score two goals and adding a third with an empty net to win the game.
Game Summary (Notre Dame 2 - Ohio State 5)
Ohio State was able to grab an early lead, jumping out with a goal four minutes into the game. With under a minute left in the period Notre Dame tied the game. Chase Blackmun grabbed a rebound and carried behind the net to the right hand faceoff circle. He let a pass go across ice to the opposite faceoff circle where Trevor Janicke one-timed the shot into the open net before Jakub Dobes could recover.
Early in the second period it was Notre Dame’s turn to score. The puck made it’s way around the boards where Fin Williams grabbed it in the corner. He took a tough angle shot from nearly the goal line that managed to squeeze past Dobes for his first career goal.
The lead was short lived though, as Ohio State was able to grab a goal of their own only three minutes later.
The third period was not kind to Notre Dame. The first half of the period went by without consequence, but Ohio State grabbed the lead again 12 minutes in. They added another goal two minutes later for a two goal lead and sealed the win with an empty net goal.
