Joey Benik has 2 goals and an assist, St. Cloud State beats Notre Dame 5-1 in NCAA tournament

TOLEDO, Ohio - Joey Benik had two goals and an assist to help fourth-seeded St. Cloud State beat top-seeded Notre Dame 5-1 on Saturday in the NCAA Midwest Regional semifinals.

The Huskies (24-15-1) will face Miami (Ohio) or Minnesota State on Sunday for a spot in the Frozen Four in Pittsburgh.

Benik, Cory Thorson and Jonny Brodzinski scored on St. Cloud State's first seven shots of the second period to make it 4-0. Ben Hanowski also scored, and Ryan Faragher made 17 saves.

Mike Voran had a short-handed goal in the third period for Notre Dame (25-13-3). The Irish entered the game with a seven-game winning streak after winning the final Central Collegiate Hockey Association tournament championship.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
