Notre Dame Hockey: Irish Shut Out Buckeyes 1-0 in Columbus

One shutout in the snow and another on the ice for the Irish today

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish closed out their series against the Ohio State Buckeyes Saturday with a 1-0 win. Following Friday’s 5-2 loss to the Buckeyes, the Irish took control in the first twenty minutes and kept it all going.

First Period

Irish forward Jack Adams nabbed his team’s first goal of the night and his first of the season not even three minutes into the first. An early penalty on Notre Dame’s Landon Slaggert for hitting from behind and a tripping call on Irish forward Tyler Carpenter provided two power play opportunities for Ohio State in the period, but the Buckeyes failed to capitalize and the two teams headed into the second, 1-0, Irish. By the end of the first period of play, the Buckeyes nearly doubled Notre Dame’s 7 shots with 13 of their own.

Second Period

A second period tiff sent Ohio State’s Patrick Guzzo and Tate Singleton along with Notre Dame’s Nick Leivermann to the box, but it wasn’t enough to change the direction of the game.

Third Period

Ohio State turned on the jets on offense in the third, eventually outshooting the Irish 19-3, but they couldn’t shift what the Irish had started. The Buckeyes pulled netminder Jakub Dobeš as the clock ran down, but the Irish had already locked it in and Notre Dame got the 1-0 shutout.
