Watch Evans' last-second goal to send Notre Dame to title game

With the season series tied 2-2, it was only fitting the fifth and final meeting between Notre Dame and Michigan hockey ended in dramatic fashion.

In the closing moments of Thursday's Frozen Four semifinals with a championship berth on the line, Fighting Irish senior forward Jake Evans delivered the game-winning goal with 3.7 seconds remaining to give Notre Dame a 4-3 victory. Notre Dame will now make its first appearance in the national championship game since 2008.

Evans received an unbelievable pass from Cam Morrison on the rush to beat Michigan goaltender Hayden Lagnive between the legs in front of the net. The Irish's captain scored two goals on the evening and assisted on another as Notre Dame and the Wolverines battled back and forth in St. Paul. With the win, the Irish will face Minnesota Duluth Saturday night in the championship game.
