ND notches first shutout since 1984

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Third-ranked Notre Dame's stifling defense and outstanding goaltending play combined to post the second shutout in program history with Saturday's 9-0 blanking of No. 15 Ohio State at Arlotta Stadium.

Notre Dame's Shane Doss started in net and stopped 11 Buckeye shots, then Conor Kelly came off the bench to play the final 4:25 of the game and made two saves to preserve the shutout. Notre Dame's only other clean sheet in program history came in a 15-0 win against Mount Union on April 10, 1984.

The Fighting Irish defense forced 22 turnovers, including a game-high four caused turnovers from defenseman Garrett Epple. Notre Dame's man-down defensive unit halted all five of Ohio State's man-up chances.

Offensively, midfielder Nick Ossello paced the Fighting Irish with three goals, which matched a career high. Conor Doyle had two goals and one assist for the Irish.

"It was a really solid all-around game for us," Notre Dame head coach Kevin Corrigan said. "We rode well and we cleared well. They tried some 10-man [ride] and we handled that. Offensively I thought we played well, but their goalie [Tom Carey] was terrific. We kept the pressure on him and didn't let him off the hook because they have a good defensive team.

"Defensively, when we weren't up to the task, Shane Doss was. He was terrific and our whole defense played well."
