Columbus, OH – A week removed from a road sweep at the hands of Penn State, the Gophers faced another steep road test at the #2 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. What a difference a few days makes. Relying on simple passing, timely scoring, and shutdown defense, the Minnesota Gophers (12-14-4 Overall, 9-9-3 B1G) took a first-period lead to the house, never looking back in a 4-3 victory over the highly-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes (19-6-4, 12-4-3).

Minneapolis, MN – Throughout the season, the Gopher hockey team has leaned heavily on goaltender Mat Robson to keep them in the game long enough to have a chance. Unfortunately, Robson can’t score goals as well. Minnesota again looked competent on the powerplay, but the lack of five-on-five scoring came back to haunt the team Friday night. In the end, the Golden Gophers (10-12-4 Overall, 7-7-3 B1G) fell 4-2 to the Michigan Wolverines (10-10-6, 6-6-4), […]
