The Irish wasted no time setting the tone of the game. Following an interference penalty on Wisconsin’s Jack Gorniak just less than two minutes into play, Jesse Lansdell found the back of the net on the power play for the Irish. By the end of the period, the Badgers had outshot the Irish 21-17.
Notre Dame’s Hunter Strand doubled the Irish score a little more than six and a half minutes into the second with his sixth goal of the season. It wasn’t until Wisconsin’s Mathieu de St. Phalle scored just less than 17 minutes into the period on the power play that the Badgers got on the board and the two teams headed into the third 2-1, Irish.
The Badgers didn’t have enough momentum to carry into the third, and Trevor Janicke scored Notre Dame’s third goal of the night and his twelfth of the season a little less than eight minutes into the period. Zach Urdahl snagged a goal to double the Badgers’ score just about five minutes later, but it was too late to shift the game in Wisconsin’s favor. With just about a minute and a half left to play, an elbowing call on Wisconsin’s Roman Ahcan earned him five minutes and a game misconduct, but the Irish had scored their last goal of the game. The Irish finished the night with the 3-2 win and by the end of the game, the Irish had outshot the Badgers 61-52.
