Hockey Loses in Overtime

Lake Superior Defeats Notre Dame, 2-1

SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich.- The Notre Dame Hockey team dropped a tough 2-1 contest to the Lake Superior Lakers on Saturday night. At 1:09 of the overtime period senor Laker defenseman Ted Laviolette picked up a centering passs from Ben Keup at the center line and and fired a slapshot througha screen and underneath the arm Irish goalie Matt Eisler. The win sent the Lakers to 15-13-4 (12-11-4 CCHA) on the season, and the Irish fell to 15-16-4 on the year. Eisler stopped ten shots in the first period, incuding three power play ones. Likewise, Laker goalie Jayne Platt turned away all eight Notre Dame shots in the opening frame.

The game remained scoreless for over thirteen minutes into the second period, but the Irish finally broke through at the 13:19 mark when Dan Carlson capatilized on a Benoit Cotnoir rebound to put the Irish up 1-0. It was Carlson's tenth goal of the season. The Lakers responded just three minutes later when Mike Kusculain picked up an Irish turnover in the slot and put a backhander past Eisler. The game got a little fiesty toward the end of the second period and the result was six minutes of penalties to the Lakers, while the Irish received just two minutes. The Irish started the final period with a four minute power play.

The Lakers killed off the Irish power play, and the game remained at 1-1. Both teams had some quality scoring chances, but niether could find the back of the net, setting up Laviolette's overtime heroics. The Irisish return to action when they host Northern Michigan for two games next weekend.
