College Hockey:
No. 1 Minnesota strikes early, stops No. 2 Notre Dame

— Nate Condon scored on the first shot on goal of the game and later added an assist as No. 1 Minnesota beat No. 2 Notre Dame 4-1 on Tuesday.

It was the first time in 11 games and in over 12 years that the higher ranked team won a game matching the top two teams in the USCHO.com Division I Men’s Poll.

Sam Warning and Zach Budish also had a goal and an assist each for the Golden Gophers (14-3-3), who finished the non-conference part of their schedule 8-0.

Adam Wilcox made 22 saves for Minnesota, which also got a second-period goal from Christian Isackson and improved to 7-1 this season against ranked teams.

Jeff Costello scored for the Fighting Irish (14-5), whose winning streak ended at six games.

The game was the first after a 24-day layoff for Notre Dame, which started a stretch of four games in eight days.

Steven Summerhays stopped 22 shots for the Irish.
