Oxford, Ohio – Second period power play goals by Notre Dame’s Rob Globke (Fr., West Bloomfield, Mich.) and Brett Henning (Jr., Huntington, N.Y.) and a 31-save performance by sophomore goaltender Tony Zasowski (So., Darien, Ill.) led the Fighting Irish to a 4-2 win over the Miami University RedHawks in front of a sellout crowd of 2,850 at Miami’s Goggin Arena Friday night.
The win snapped Notre Dame’s three-game losing streak and gave the Irish their first road win of the season. ND is now 3-5-1 overall and 1-2-0 in CCHA play. Miami drops its fifth game in a row and is now 1-5-1 on the season and 0-3-0 in league play.
Notre Dame got on the board first as sophomore John Wroblewski (Neenah, Wisc.) scored his first collegiate goal at the 4:11 mark. The second-year forward picked up a bouncing puck in front of Miami goaltender David Burleigh and drilled it through his pads. The bouncing puck came courtesy of defenseman Brett Lebda (Fr., Buffalo Grove, Ill.) whose shot from the left point hit a stick and bounced high in the air.
Miami tied it less than three minutes later when the RedHawks top sniper, junior center Jason Deskins, picked off an errant ND clearing pass in the slot and fired it past Zasowski for his fourth goal of the season.
The RedHawks opened the second period scoring at 4:13 when Matt Chandler’s wrist shot from the left wing boards broke through Zasowski’s pads for his first goal of the season.
The Irish power play started clicking moments after getting two man-advantage goals in less than five minutes. Notre Dame came into the game having scored just three power play goals on 53 chances. On the night, the Irish converted on two of four chances.
Globke evened the score at 2-2 with his team-best fifth goal of the year. Senior Dan Carlson (Edina, Minn.) carried the puck down the left wing boards and left a drop pass for Ryan Dolder (Sr., Hutchinson, Minn.). Dolder found Globke streaking down the right side and hit him with a crisp centering pass that the rookie right wing fired past Burleigh at 10:23.
Henning got his first goal of the season moments after junior center David Inman (Toronto, Ont.) was carried off the ice after taking a hard open-ice hit from Miami’s Deskins. Inman was down on the ice for 10 minutes and attended to by both Notre Dame’s and Miami’s training staffs before being taken to a local hospital. X-rays and tests were negative and Inman was treated and released.
Henning cashed in for his first goal of the season off hard work by Connor Dunlop (So., St. Louis, Mo.) and Jay Kopischke (Sr., Alexandria, Minn.). Dunlop won a face-off to the right of Burleigh to Kopischke. The converted forward moved the puck back to Dunlop who centered in front to Henning who one-timed a blast past Burleigh at 15:04.
Notre Dame added empty net goals in the final 1:30 of the game by Carlson and Dolder for the final score of 5-2.
On the night, Miami outshot Notre Dame, 33-23. ND’s Zasowski picked up his first win of the season by making 31 saves on the night. Burleigh made 18 stops for the RedHawks.
The two teams play the second game of the weekend series on Saturday night in Oxford, Ohio with a 7:35 p.m. face-off.
