College Hockey schedule 2012: Second-ranked Notre Dame faces Bowling Green

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

A matchup between No. 2 Notre Dame and Bowling Green highlights Tuesday's college hockey schedule. Can the Irish avoid their second loss of the week?

With this weekend's college hockey action out the way, the spotlight should be on a big matchup between the second-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Bowling Green Falcons for Tuesday's short schedule. One of just two games going on, it gives the Irish a chance to get back some ground on top-ranked Minnesota with the pollsters.

While the Irish have played extremely well over the past couple months, they missed a key opportunity to shake up the top of the national rankings by losing 4-1 to the Golden Gophers last Tuesday. The only regular season matchup between the two teams this season, a win likely would've bumped Notre Dame to the top of the national poll.

In Tuesday's second game, the Penn St. Nittany Lions take on the Neumann Knights. It's been a rough year for Penn State, which has been below .500 for weeks, but Neumann has actually played quite well of late. After a bad stretch in early December, the Knights have won five consecutive games.
