Frozen Four: Michigan's Season Ends With Heartbreak At The Buzzer

It was his second goal of the night, and it officially punched Notre Dame's ticket to the national title game on Saturday night against the University of Minnesota Duluth. The Irish have never won the national title.

"Minnesota does the best job in the country of developing young players", Notre Dame coach Jeff Jackson said.

It is the fifth straight postseason game that Notre Dame has scored in the final minute or overtime.

The other game will see Big Ten champion Notre Dame and Blackhawks defenseman prospect Dennis Gilbert take on MI.

When Cam Morrison scored at 9:23 of overtime, Bulldog players went insane, celebrating in the locker room. Notre Dame came back from early deficits in both games.

Malmquist padded his postseason resume with another highlight play Thursday night on a splendid assist that set up a go-ahead goal in the third period of the Frozen Four semifinals at Xcel Energy Center. The Fighting Irish are the top remaining seed in the tournament after beating Michigan Tech and Providence in their first two contests. Jared Thomas then converted a wide-open breakaway less than two minutes later to make it 2-0. Minutes later, it was a time game thanks to who?

Notre Dame quickly retaliated twice, once on the man-advantage.

Jackson said he knows the challenge MI will present to his team Thursday. "We're good on our gaps, our guys are up on their guys and there aren't a lot of lanes for them to shoot". "It's the sign of a team that's gaining confidence".

"I don't think there was one day all year when I had to get on them, " Rohlik said. MI is one of the best offensive teams in the NCAA, so this was expected.

Three of the four teams have goaltenders that previously played in the NAHL. They also have Quinn Hughes on defense. But good play by them.

Notre Dame, which fell to Boston College for the 2008 title, will face Minnesota Duluth Saturday for the title. 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. Those two guys have been instrumental in our success.

Charging down the slot, Evans redirected a pass from Cam Morrison off the left pad of sliding goalie Hayden Lavigne and into the net to send the Irish to their second championship game in school history. He said it shows how strong the conference is getting. But, we weren't going to get here without those guys. They're great people and I'm proud of them for what they did for me this year. "This is right up there as one of my most enjoyable years and even though we didn't win a national championship, I'm glad our seniors got to experience the Frozen Four". A MI forward did a great job screening Morris on the shot, making it hard for him to locate the puck. You look at all of the programs, there aren't any weak programs amongst them, and that says a lot about the quality of the programs.
