2012 College Hockey schedule: Notre Dame aims to rebound against Minnesota-Duluth on Friday

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish men's hockey team suffered their first loss of the season on Thursday night against Minnesota-Duluth, but they get a chance for redemption on Friday.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish men's hockey team started off the season with two consecutive wins, but Minnesota-Duluth knocked them in the loss column the first time on Thursday night. Notre Dame fell by a score of 3- 1 in the first of a two-game series that will wrap up on Friday night at 6:35 p.m.CT.

The Irish then have off until Oct. 26, when they begin a two-game road series against Northern Michigan. The week after that they have a matchup scheduled against Western Michigan.

Notre Dame still holds a solid spot in the CCHA standings at this early juncture in the season. The only teams without losses in the conference are Miami (Ohio) and Northern Michigan, and the Irish are the only other team to have compiled a winning record during the early stages of non-conference play. In an interesting twist, ND's only loss this year has come at home, while the two victories have been accomplished at neutral sites.
