Goals by Wes O'Neil and Brock Shehan were enough for the Irish to handle Lake Superior State, 3-0 as Notre Dame advanced to the post-season finals of the CCHA in Detroit on Friday.
Christian Hanson added an empty net marker for the 3-0 final. Irish goalie David Brown wasn't tested too much early but late in the third period he made several outstanding stops to keep the Soo Lakers at bay.
It's Notre Dame and Michigan Saturday night at The Joe for the title. NCAA bids will be announced on Sunday.
