Three-goal burst gives Denver a 5-0 lead after two

CHICAGO — Three goals in the last six minutes of the second period have given Denver a 5-0 over Notre Dame after two in tonight’s NCAA national semifinal.

Evan Ritt rushed up the right wing and wristed a goal in around the top of the net at 18:18 of the second period to break the game wide open.

Dylan Gambrell scored on a wrap around at 16:31 when he took a feed from defenseman Tariq Hammond and jammed a puck past Notre Dame goalie Cal Petersen at the left post.

Hammond scored his third goal of the season at 14:07 of the period to give the Pioneers a 3-0 lead. A stumble to the ice by backskating Notre Dame defenseman Luke Ripley in the neutral zone sprung a two-on-one Denver rush. Jannsen backhanded a pass on the doorstep to Hammond, who steered it into a wide-open net.

Henrik Borgström and Emil Romig scored for Denver in the first period.

Denver had a 17-8 shot advantage in the second period and has outshot Notre Dame 29-11 through two.

Neither team has been assessed a penalty in the game.
