Our man Steve Summerhays, the Notre Dame senior goaltender from Anchorage, distinguished himself for something other than his usual excellent work between the pipes, though he did get the win in a 3-2 victory at Minnesota-Duluth tonight.
Seriously, when was the last time you heard of a goalie getting a five-minute major and game misconduct for grabbing the face mask of Minnesota-Duluth's Adam Krause? (Notre Dame coach Jeff Jackson said the last time he remembers a goalie getting the gate is the early 90s when he coached at Lake Superior.
Summerhays exit meant freshman Chad Katunar not only had to come in cold for his college debut, but had to face a 5-on-3. He gave up a goal -- that pulled Duluth to within one goal at 3-2 -- but held the fort on an extended Duluth power play that continued.
Summerhays improved to 5-0-0 with a 1.25 goals-against average and .944 save percentage.
And his 15 penalty minutes makes him the Fighting Irish's leader in PIMs!
