#16 Irish Skate Past Maine 3-2


Feb. 10, 2017

By Dan Colleran

PORTLAND, Maine -- The No. 16 University of Notre Dame hockey team took a 1-0 lead 65 seconds into the game on a Jack Jenkins goal and went on to post a 3-2 win over Maine on Friday night at the Cross Insurance Arena.

 

Anders Bjork and Andrew Oglevie each scored their 17th goals of the season to help Notre Dame (16-9-4, 9-5-3) push its unbeaten streak to three games.

 

Cal Petersen posted 29 saves in the Notre Dame net, while Rob McGovern and Matt Morris combined for 25 saves for Maine (10-16-3, 4-12-1).  

How It Happened

Just 65 seconds into the first period, Jack Jenkins gave the Irish a 1-0 lead when he scored his fourth of the season from just outside the goal crease. Cal Burke took a pass from Dennis Gilbert at the defensive blue line, skated by the Maine defense along the near boards and centered the puck for Jenkins.

 

Bjork made it a 2-0 Notre Dame lead at 6:22 of the first when he caught up to a loose puck, weaved through the Maine defense and fired high past McGovern's glove for his 17th goal of the season.

 

Midway through the first period, Petersen denied Chase Pearson on the doorstep for one of his best saves of the night.

 

Oglevie pushed the lead to 3-0 just 1:37 into the second period when he put a shot on goal that eluded McGovern with Jenkins providing a screen in front. Gilbert assisted on Oglevie's 17th of the season for a two-point night.

 

At 12:42 of the third Brendan Robbins got Maine on the board with his fourth goal of the season.

 

The Irish generated some quality scoring chances as the third period wore on, but Morris, who came on for the start of the third period, stopped all seven shots he faced in the final frame.

With Morris pulled and the extra attacker on, Maine made it a 3-2 game with four seconds left in the third. The goal was also a power-play tally.

Notre Dame was 0-for-4 on the power play, while Maine was 1-for-4.
