Final Stats

Oxford, Ohio - The Miami RedHawks got two second-period goals from Steven Spinell and Blake Coleman 30 seconds apart and freshman goaltender Ryan McKay stopped 20 of the 21 shots on the way to a 3-1 win over Notre Dame Friday night at Steve Cady Arena.

Marc Hagel scored the final RedHawk goal into an open net. Freshman center Steven Fogarty notched the lone Notre Dame goal, getting his fifth of the season with less than three minutes left in the game. Goaltender Steven Summerhays finished with 19 saves on the night.

Notre Dame had its chances, getting six power plays on the night but failed to convert. The RedHawks were 1-for-3 with the power play on the night.

The loss drops the 12th ranked Irish to 18-12-1 on the season and 14-8-1-1- in CCHA play. Miami, ranked third in the nation goes to 19-7-5 overall and 14-5-4-4 in the conference. The RedHawks have 50 points in the CCHA and are in first place, two points ahead of second-place Western Michigan (48) and six ahead of Notre Dame in third place.

Miami out shot the Irish, 8-2 in the opening period but neither team was able to get on the scoreboard. The best chance in the period for Notre Dame came with just over 11 minutes left in the first when defenseman Sam Calabrese rang one off the post to the right of McKay. The Irish had three chances on the power play to two for the RedHawks.

After the scoreless first period, Miami finally broke through at 13:24 of the second period, getting a power-play goal by Spinell.

With the puck deep in the Notre Dame zone, Sean Kuraly fired a pass from the goal line to the center point where Spinnell drilled a slap shot past goaltender Steven Summerhays for his first goal of the season.

Spinnell's goal hadn't even been announced when Miami was back at it again with Coleman getting his seventh of the season 30 seconds later at 13:54. The sophomore center carried the puck down the right side while left wing Max Cook drove to the goal. Coleman fired a shot that Summerhays stopped but Coleman got his own rebound and flipped it over the Irish netminder under the cross bar to make it 2-0 Miami.

 

 

The Irish carried the play in the third period as they out shot Miami by a 12-5 margin but could score just once as Fogarty cut the lead to 2-1 at 17:37 with his fifth goal of the year.

Defenseman Shayne Taker was able to find Fogarty inside the RedHawk blue line and the freshman moved in on McKay and beat him with a nice shot to give the Irish a shot to tie the game.

The hopes of evening the score came to an end with Summerhays pulled in the final minute-and-a-half as the Red Hawks cleared a Notre Dame scoring bid up the ice to Hagel who scored into an open net for the final of 3-1.

Miami out shot the Irish, 22-21, in the game.

The two teams will be off on Saturday as they travel to Chicago, Ill., to prepare for the OfficeMax Hockey City Classic game at 12:05 p.m. (CT) on Sunday at historic Soldier Field. This will be the first outdoor game for the Irish in the 45 years they have played at the Division I level. Wisconsin and Minnesota will play in the second game of the doubleheader. The game will be televised by Fox Sports Detroit and Comcast Chicago.
