— The Hockey East Association has announced that the Notre Dame – Northeastern game that was suspended after two periods of play on Nov. 13 has been officially called a tie, as the score was 0-0 when a zamboni breakdown and subsequent poor ice conditions forced a game suspension at Matthews Arena.

Notre Dame goaltender Cal Petersen made 16 saves in what proved to be his sixth career shutout.

Petersen was called upon to make key saves throughout the first 40 minutes. Early in the first period, he denied Garrett Cockerill from the low slot. Petersen’s top plays in the second period included stopping Adam Gaudette with a glove save at 6:04, along with back-to-back right pad saves to close out the frame.

Northeastern goaltender Jake Theut stopped all 22 shots he faced in the first two periods of play in the first start of his career.


The Fighting Irish play host to fifth-ranked UMass Lowell on Thursday, Nov. 17 and Friday, Nov. 18. Both games against the No. 5/6 Riverhawks will begin at 7:35 p.m.
