Oxford, Ohio – The Notre Dame hockey team was looking to pick up four points in the CCHA standings in its weekend series at Miami. After battling the RedHawks for 65 minutes and a 1-1 tie at sold-out Goggin Arena, the Irish will have to settle for three big road points in their first road games of the year.
The tie gives the Irish a 3-5-2 overall record and a 1-2-1 mark in the CCHA. Miami is now 1-5-2 for the year and 0-3-1 in league play.
This game started fast as Notre Dame wasted little time getting on the scoreboard, scoring on its first shot of the game, just 16 seconds into the contest.
Senior left wing Dan Carlson (Edina, Minn.) got his second goal in as many nights as he one-timed a centering pass from center Chad Chipchase (Sr., Clinton, Ont.) past Miami’s David Burleigh. Carlson finished the weekend with four points and raised his career totals to 37 goals and 61 points.
Miami got what proved to be the final goal of the game at 4:17 of the second period as senior defenseman Ernie Hartlieb scored his first goal of the season off a scramble in front of Irish goaltender Tony Zasowski. Forward Derek Edwardson got the initial shot on goal which ND’s sophomore netminder stopped but couldn’t control the rebounds.
Hartlieb moved in from his right point spot and jammed the rebound past Zasowski for his first goal of the season.
The RedHawks had several excellent scoring chances late in the third period, but Zasowski was equal to the task as he twice stopped Miami’s Ken Leahy point-blank on power play chances and again came up big late in the game on Miami’s top scorer Jason Deskins.
For the night, Zasowski made 26 saves in his second consecutive strong performance. Burleigh made 21 saves for the RedHawks.
After scoring two power play goals on Friday night, the Irish were 0-for-5 in Saturday’s game. Notre Dame did kill off all four Miami power play chances, shutting Miami out on the weekend on nine chances with the man-advantage.
Notre Dame returns to action on Friday, November 10th when the Irish play host to one of the nation’s top teams -the Boston College Eagles. The Irish have already played Boston College this season, dropping a 4-1 decision at the Maverick Stampede on October 13th. Face-off at the Joyce Center Friday is 7:05 p.m
