    After splitting a pair of games with Bowling Green at home last weekend, #9/#9 Notre Dame returned to the Compton Family Ice Arena this evening where it took on #5/#6 Ferris State in a CCHA matchup.

    Unfortunately for the Fighting Irish, they will have to look for a road victory tomorrow night to salvage the home-and-home series, as they fell to the Bulldogs, 3-0 in front of the sellout home crowd.

    After a scoreless first, Ferris State got a pair of goals from junior left wing Kyle Bonis in the second period. In the third period, senior center Derek Graham netted a score for the first-place Bulldogs, who improved to 19-8-4 overall, and 13-6-4-1 in the conference.

    The loss drops the Irish to 16-12-3 overall and 11-9-3 in the CCHA. The teams split a pair of games in December, so the Bulldogs lead the season series 2-1.

    Just five games remain on the regular season schedule. Notre Dame travels to Oxford, Ohio for two games with Miami next weekend, before closing out February with a home series against Michigan State.

    But first, head coach Jeff Jackson's squad will seek to split the weekend with Ferris State tomorrow in Big Rapids, Mich. The puck drops a 7:08 pm ET at Ewigleben Arena and you can catch the action live on Comcast Channel 3 in the South Bend area. Matt Shepard, Sean Ritchlin and Rob Otto will have the call.
