Hockey: Irish Blank Boston University, 2-0

Notre Dame Hockey | Feb. 23, 2014 | Notre Dame Athletics

For the third consecutive game, Notre Dame senior goaltender Steven Summerhays was on as he combined with fellow senior Joe Rogers to stop all 22 shots they faced in a 2-0 shutout win over Boston University in front of a sellout crowd of 5,022 at the Compton Family Ice Arena.

Jeff Costello and Austin Wuthrich provided the offense with third-period goals to snap a 0-0 tie. On the night, Notre Dame out shot the Terriers by a 40-22 margin. Boston University sophomore goaltender Sean Maguire finished the night with 38 saves.

The win gives the Irish their first sweep of a Hockey East weekend series and improved their current unbeaten streak to five games (4-0-1) dating back to Feb. 8. Notre Dame is now 19-12-2 overall and 8-9-2 in conference play, good for 18 points and a seventh-place tie with the University of Vermont. The Catamounts have one game in hand (19-18) on the Irish.
