Frozen Four: Notre Dame Punches Ticket to Finals In Dramatic Fashion!

Frozen Four: Notre Dame Punches Ticket to Finals In Dramatic Fashion!

The winners of those two games play for the national title on Saturday.

MI coach Mel Pearson was still numb more than 20 minutes after the loss.

Only Notre Dame, Michigan's arch rival, stands in the way. Notre Dame looked like a completely different team.

Cal Burke gave the Irish a 3-2 lead 1:35 into the third period, but freshman forward Michael Pastujov scored at 14:38 to tie the game for the Wolverines. "That's our hope at MI, that every sport can compete for Big Ten championships and when you compete for a Big Ten championship you can compete for a national championship".

When Cam Morrison scored at 9:23 of overtime, Bulldog players went insane, celebrating in the locker room.

Michigan Hockey's rollercoaster season came to an end late Thursday night when Jake Evans and Notre Dame defeated the the Wolverines 4-3. Though the Wolverines have the most Frozen Four appearances (25, tied with Boston College) and national titles (nine), they are comfortable playing the role of underdog. In another two-game home-and-home series between the two in mid-February, Michigan won both games by 4-2 and 1-0 scores. Minutes later, it was a time game thanks to who? I'm still not sure how he wasn't named a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award. It is the second time Jackson has won the award after previously winning it in 2007 during his second year at Notre Dame.

Beilein said he'll be watching on Thursday.

"You gotta tip your cap to Duluth, but our guys felt we were on our heels right away", Ohio State coach Steve Rohlik said. "It's the sign of a team that's gaining confidence". I give them credit. [Michigan sophomore goaltender Hayden] Lavigne has played well, and I think that has solidified their team more than anything now that he's at a high level. Freshman defenseman Quinn Hughes drove down the ice with electric dangles and delivered a pass through the crease that just missed its mark. But good play by them. Calderone and junior defenseman Joseph Cecconi got the assists.

MI finishes the season 22-15-3, but most in the college hockey world didn't think that was possible after the team was picked to finish sixth in the Big Ten. "We rely on them to play a lot of quality minutes defensively, but I think Dennis especially has the ability to do more than that". Those two guys have been instrumental in our success. The championship game is set for Saturday, April 7. The Big Ten will be represented well with three of the four teams remaining in the tournament hailing from the conference. "I think everybody anticipated that it would be even better than it was past year".

"It's been kind of an up-and-down year", said Garner, who turned 40 last month. A MI forward did a great job screening Morris on the shot, making it hard for him to locate the puck. That success, they said, is what MI strives for in all its athletic programs.

"I tried to get out there and make sure he wasn't going to put one in short side". "Their system, the youth level, in high school, they do a tremendous job in their development and skill".

The Bulldogs scored twice in the first three minutes, four seconds.
