Tynan was named the Icebreaker’s most valuable player…UNO freshman goaltender Anthony Stolarz made his official collegiate debut against Notre Dame on Saturday. The 2012 second-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Flyers gave up a flukey goal on the first shot on target he faced, but he had a solid debut otherwise, ending the night with 23 saves…Notre Dame freshman forward Thomas DiPauli‘s first-ever goal for the Fighting Irish proved to be Saturday’s game winner…Maine beat Army 4-3 in Saturday’s Icebreaker consolation game to clinch a third-place finish in the tournament…With the loss in Saturday’s final, UNO’s record dropped to 1-1-0, while Notre Dame improved to 2-0-0. UNO faces Northern Michigan at home next weekend. Notre Dame is also at home next weekend, with the Irish opening a two-game set against Minnesota Duluth.
