Special teams costs ND in loss

Starting a push toward winning the conference championship eluded the Notre Dame hockey team Friday on the road.

League-leading Miami killed off six penalties, scored two second period goals and received a 20-save effort for goaltender Ryan McKay en route to a 3-1 win in front of its home crowd. Three more points puts the RedHawks two points ahead of Western Michigan atop the Central Collegiate Hockey Association standings.

Notre Dame (18-12-1, 14-8-1-1 CCHA) sits in third place, six points behind Miami and five ahead of Ferris State.

Steven Spinell opened the scoring with a power-play goal at 13:24 of the second period with his first goal of the season. Blake Coleman scored his seventh just 30 seconds later, flipping his own rebound over Irish goaltender Steven Summerhays for a 2-0 lead.

Summerhays made 19 saves total.

Miami (19-7-5, 14-5-4-4 CCHA) held its two-goal lead late in the third period when Steven Fogarty put Notre Dame on the board with his third goal of the season at 17:37. Head coach Jeff Jackson pulled Summerhays in favor of an extra attacker after the Fogarty goal but Miami's Marc Hagel put the puck into an empty net at 18:58 to seal the 3-1 final.

Notre Dame missed on all six of its power plays and mustered just nine shots in the first two periods combined.

The series will conclude at 1 p.m. eastern on Sunday at the OfficeMax Hockey City Classic in Chicago, an outdoor game at Soldier Field.
