Denver leads Notre Dame 2-0 after first period on goals by Romig, Borgström

CHICAGO — Denver leads Notre Dame 2-0 after the first period in today’s second NCAA national semifinal.

Pioneer defenseman and member of the Hobey Hat Trick Will Butcher set up Denver’s second goal when he carried the puck around the net from right to left. With no room to put it in near side and with Notre Dame goalie Cal Petersen’s paddle on the ice, Butcher slid a pass just past the end of Petersen’s stick. Henrik Borgström tapped it in at 14:50 of the period.

Emil Romig made it 1-0 Denver at 8:18, speeding out from behind the net and roofing a sharp angle shot on a feed from Colin Staub.

Denver outshot Notre Dame 12-3 in the period. Neither team was penalized.
