Andrew Oglevie scored 90 seconds into the game, Cal Burke added an empty net goal with 14 seconds left in the third and Cale Morris stopped all 23 shots he faced to lead the No. 3/4 Fighting Irish to a 2-0 win at Michigan State on Saturday night at the Munn Ice Arena (5,698).
The win was Notre Dame's 11th in a row, which marks the longest winning streak under head coach Jeff Jackson and the third-longest winning streak in program history. The Irish (14-3-1, 8-0-0-0 B1G) also remained undefeated in Big Ten play.
By stopping all 23 shots he faced, Morris earned his fourth shutout of the season. At the 8:30 mark of the first period, he made a point blank stop on Michigan's State's Austin Kamer to keep the Irish in front 1-0. He also made back-to-back saves from Spartan shots in close with 6:00 left in the third.
In the Michigan State (7-8-1, 1-6-1-1) net, Lethemon made 27 saves.
NOTRE DAME SCORING
1-0 | Andrew Oglevie gave the Irish a 1-0 lead just 90 seconds into the first period. After a long stretch of offensive zone pressure that included a line change, Colin Theisen one-timed an Oglevie pass that Spartan Goaltender John Lethemon fought off. Dylan Malmquist kept the rebound alive in front and Oglevie was then able to knock in the loose puck from just outside the goal crease for his seventh of the season.
2-0 | Jake Evans picked up a deflected Michigan State shot at the top of the offensive zone and slid the puck to Cal Burke in the neutral zone, who backhanded in his ninth of the year into the empty net.
