Late goal sends Notre Dame to Frozen Four final

Notre Dame and MI will face off in the Frozen Four on Thursday around 9:30pm.

MI took on No. 2 Notre Dame at the Frozen Four in St. Paul, Minnesota on Thursday, April 5. My heart rate has yet to return to a normal level and I doubt it will before the puck drops on Saturday night, when the Irish play Minnesota-Duluth in the title game.

Gross initiated the breakout pass that set up Notre Dame's final rush and Evans' game-winner.

On Tuesday, Notre Dame head coach Jeff Jackson was named the recipient of the 2018 Spencer Penrose Award, given annually to the best coach in Division l ice hockey.

ESPN Incorporates Alternate Views, Historical Hockey Music into TelecastESPN's coverage will feature Ref Cam for the second consecutive year, allowing viewers to experience the game through the eyes of the referee while utilizing the vantage point mostly in replays throughout the three games.

Notre Dame outshot the Wolverines, 29-28.

Jackson said he knows the challenge MI will present to his team Thursday.

But they're both back here.

"He grabbed the net a little bit in November and we changed the plan a little bit and let him play back-to-back games", Sandelin said.

"It's good for me, because when you only see 20-25 shots a game it's easy to stay fresh". "As a defenseman, when a guy is flying at you like that, it's hard to make a good play with the puck".

Michigan, which used a strong second half of the season to finish third in the Big Ten and earn an NCAA at-large berth, drew motivation from the school's men's basketball team, the NCAA tournament runner-up to Villanova.

"Whether that's a character thing, I don't know, but it's awesome". "He reminds me a lot of the kid we had a year ago [Petersen]".

UMD qualified for the national tournament on the final day of conference playoffs, when six conference championship games across the country had to go its way. It's us against three Big Ten teams.

- As the NCAA Final Four came to a close this week all eyes turned to Minneapolis as next year's host, though St. Paul is looking at holding a major sporting event of its own this week. You look at programs on the rise like Michigan, Michigan State was much improved this year, Ohio State has made great gains in their program, so did Penn State. Kuhlman was the one who started the rally 6:38 into the second period with an unassisted goal. It wasn't the most talented team I've had here in four years but it was the best team and we just loved being around each other.
