Goal:

Sauer

And as I type this, Notre Dame has scored two goals in a 42 second span. With exactly five minutes gone in the opening period, Calle Ridderwall, with just three goals on the season to date, scored a goal scorer’s goal, beating two defenseman and then Michigan goalie Billy Sauer to make it 1-0.

Just 42 seconds later, Mark Van Guilder put a wrist shot on net that appeared to change direction on Sauer, beating him under the glove arm to make it 2-0.

As we stand now, there’s 7:50 to play in the first and it’s still 2-0 Notre Dame. Michigan has successfully killed off a couple of Notre Dame power plays and is trying to swing the momentum its way.
