Tied 2-2 with after two periods of play, the No. 8/9  University of Notre Dame hockey team came out of the second intermission and scored 1:42 into the third period en route to a 4-2 win over Arizona State on Saturday night at the Compton Family Ice Arena (3,554).

The teams traded goals for the first two periods of play and then Anders Bjork knocked home what proved to be the game winner early in the third period before Dylan Malmquist iced the game with an empty net tally late in the final frame.

Bjork had a hand in each of Notre Dame’s four goals, finishing with two goals and two assists, while Connor Hurley added the other Irish tally as well as two assists.

In net, junior captain Cal Petersen made 23 saves, while Arizona State’s Robert Levin totaled 33 on the night.

The Irish finished 1-for-9 on the power play, while Arizona State was 1-for-4.
