Notre Dame Hockey | Nov. 8, 2013 | Notre Dame Athletics
The University of Minnesota made its first visit to Notre Dame since 1980 on Friday night and the Fighting Irish team made it a night that they would soon forget as they handed the top-ranked Gophers a 4-1 loss in front of a sellout crowd of 5,022 at the Compton Family Ice Arena.
Senior goaltender Steven Summerhays made a season-high 31 saves and got goals from Bryan Rust (ppg), Sam Herr (ppg), Garrett Peterson and Jeff Costello in the win. Minnesota's lone goal came off the stick of Ben Marshall in the second period.
The victory extended Notre Dame's home winning streak to 11 games, a streak that started last Jan. 26 with a win over Ferris State. The Irish are 4-0-0 this season at Compton Family Ice Arena.
