Michigan hockey falls again to Notre Dame for series sweep

Gregory Shamus

Three third-period goals sealed a 4-1 loss for the Michigan ice hockey team Friday, completing Notre Dame's first sweep of a Wolverines home series since 1978.

The No. 13 Michigan Wolverines gave up three goals in the third period in a 4-1 loss Friday to No. 7 Notre Dame at Yost Ice Arena in Ann Arbor, completing a season sweep for the Fighting Irish.

Freshman defenseman Jacob Trouba scored the lone goal for the Wolverines (4-6-1, 2-5-1-1 CCHA). For Notre Dame (8-3-0, 5-1-0-0 CCHA), the sweep was the first of a Michigan home series since 1978.

The Fighting Irish struck first on a first-period power play when sophomore defenseman Robbie Russo scored on a shot from the blue line. Both teams had three power plays in the first frame, but the Wolverines were unable to cash in.

Trouba answered in the second period when he picked off Notre Dame's attempt to clear the puck in Michigan's zone and slapped a shot past junior goalie Steven Summerhays, who saved 27-of-28. Wolverines freshman goalie Steve Racine stopped 15-of-18.

The Wolverines next face Bowling Green on Wednesday at Yost Ice Arena.
