Michigan Hockey falls to Fighting Irish in Frozen Four

The theme of UMD's run to the title game has been its young defensive corps that had to regroup after losing five of its members to graduation or pro contracts with five freshmen, but the Bulldogs had to replace a goaltender, too.

In the spring of 2010, about a year before UMD won its first - and, for now, only - men's hockey national championship, Garner went to an emergency room in Duluth because of a nosebleed that had gone on for hours. "It's not like we were defending for our life - we only gave up 13 shots after two periods". But we had a good. our forward group, we had a lot of depth coming back.

MI blew a 2-0 second period lead, allowing three straight Notre Dame goals before tying the game back up in the third period with just over five minutes left to play.

Notre Dame, which won the Big Ten regular season and playoff titles, will face Minnesota Duluth in the championship on Saturday.

Pretty much any goaltender can catch fire and carry his team through a game. "That's a strong suit for us". Let us know in the comments. "When we jump on teams fast, it's hard for them to recover from that and come back on us". He played for Dave Esse and the Cloquet-Esko-Carlton Lumberjacks through his junior year and was coached by Jim Montgomery - now Denver's head coach - for parts of two seasons with the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the U.S. Hockey League.

They have yet to reach an NCAA title game. In fact, it's been commonplace in recent seasons.

Patrolling Michigan's blue line is freshman Quinn Hughes, who is tied as the highest- scoring defenseman in the conference with 29 points.

In addition to the six goalless periods that Shepard delivered, the defense held opponents without a shot in one period in each of the Bulldogs' regional wins.

The Irish rallied from a two-goal deficit via goals by Andrew Oglevie, Evans and Cal Burke.

Lavigne finished with 25 saves for the Wolverines.

Three weeks ago at Xcel during the NCHC Frozen Faceoff, there was no home-ice advantage for the Bulldogs.

He's relishing the excitement the two teams have brought to campus and fans.

This reaction says it all as we at A Winning Habit were fired up for the goal. "It's so fun playing in front of a crowd like this, especially when they are on your side this time". Minnesota-Duluth was the only non-Big Ten team represented.

"I don't know", Sandelin said in response to a question about this journey after the win. "Because I remember in 2011 when we came out, the building was electric". I don't know if there's any easy way to lose. "If we can get timely scoring that's the most important thing".

Senior forwards Tony Calderone and Dexter Dancs each had a goal and an assist to help give MI a 2-0 lead.

Tufte said after the game he's been dealing with an ankle sprain "for a while now", but at the time of the hit he thought the injury was much worse.

"I was thinking to myself, 'I'm not ready for this to be done, '" Kuhlman said.

It wasn't broken, just aggravated. "Kudos to the guys for battling and putting ourselves in a good spot", said Mackay. They started defending better, only allowing MI seven total shots in the period.
