Hockey: Irish Win First HOCKEY EAST Match, 3-2

Notre Dame Hockey | Nov. 3, 2013 | Notre Dame Athletics

Steven Summerhays Hockey vs Bowling Green

For just over 53 minutes on Saturday night, it looked like everything that Notre Dame threw at Vermont goaltender Mike Santaguida, the 5-9, 175-pound netminder or his defense would stop it.

Enter Irish sophomore left wing Sam Herr who in the space of 1:02 late in the third period helped Notre Dame snatch its first-ever Hockey East victory from the jaws of defeat. Trailing 2-1, Herr beat Santaguida first on a wrist shot from a bad angle over the goaltender's right shoulder and under the cross bar to tie the game at 2-2 at the 13:18 mark. 

Just over 60 seconds later, on an almost identical play, Herr raced down the left wing and laced a wrist shot that beat the Vermont goaltender low and inside the far post to give the Irish their only lead of the weekend and a 3-2 victory.
