In the first half of the series between the two, Notre Dame beat MSU, 1-0.

A series of penalties in the first period resulted in MSU sophomore forward Brent Darnell being sent off the ice for the game with a 5-game major and a game misconduct.

Darnell hit Notre Dame’s Nick Larson from behind, which turned into a scuffle involving most players on the ice. Larson was sent to the box with a roughing call.

Minutes later, Notre Dame received a penalty, giving MSU an advantage, but minutes later the Spartans found themselves having to play shorthanded for almost 2:50 minutes because of Darnell’s major.

Notre Dame’s Robbie Russo scored the only goal of the game, a wrister on a power play.

The two teams meet again tomorrow night at 7:05 p.m. at Munn Ice Arena.
