Teammates console MI goaltender Hayden Lavigne (30) after he allowed the go-ahead goal by Notre Dame forward Jake Evans in the final seconds of a semifinal in the NCAA men's Frozen Four college hockey tournament Thursday, April 5, 2018, in St. Paul, Minn.
Notre Dame, the second overall seed in the tournament, survived an overtime scare against upset-minded Michigan Tech in the first round then got a late goal from Dylan Malmquist to take down Providence, 2-1.
While Michigan continued to beat the Notre Dame defensemen with an aggressive forecheck and speed down the left side of the ice, the Fighting Irish kept generating odd-man rushes that all ended in acrobatic saves from Lavigne.
For the second year in a row and the fourth time in program history, Notre Dame will play in the Frozen Four semifinals for a chance to play for a national championship. "That's our hope at MI, that every sport can compete for Big Ten championships and when you compete for a Big Ten championship you can compete for a national championship". And the USA team that finished fourth at the IIHF World Junior Championships in January featured 10 Minnesotans, four from UMD - Pernovich, Tufte, and Joey and Mikey Anderson of Roseville. The UMD defense performed in the first period Thursday like it had at the West Regional two weeks prior in Sioux Falls with suffocating defense that kept attempted shots from turning to shots on goal.

"I don't know what it went off of". They don't have any real deficiencies, they have a number of guys that are high-profile offensive players, especially their top line. "And you just get on a run and keep it going, and figure out how to play tough, close games like that".
MI was not a favorite for the Frozen Four this year. "The doctors told me they're happy with where I am". Dancs scored 17 seconds into the second period on a shot that went off a Notre Dame defenseman.
Ohio State's historic season came to an end with a game in Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul, Minnesota. "Bigger city, National Hockey League arena, a lot more media, it's a lot of fun, but I think that experience is going to help us". But the Bulldogs coach has become accustomed to tight, tense games in the NCAA tournament, so a 2-1 victory over Ohio State was no surprise. "We rely on them to play a lot of quality minutes defensively, but I think Dennis especially has the ability to do more than that".
MI arguably had better quality scoring chances late in the third period, but that didn't matter when all was said and done. I didn't think (Morrison) was going to pass. "Staying in a routine is probably the biggest thing for me and just be ready to go Saturday".
