Madison, WI – After an emotional and hard-fought weekend, the Minnesota Gophers (16-7-5 Overall (3-0 OT), 7-5-2-4 B1G 29 pts) came out of Badger weekend with a win and a tie against #4-ranked Wisconsin (20-6-2 (2-1), 10-3-2-1 35 pts).

Gophers Get First Conference Sweep of Season with 6-3 Win Over Buckeyes

Minneapolis, Minn. — The expectation for Minnesota from the start of this season was to finish the year across town playing at the Frozen Four. Numerous dropped points throughout the first half served as a reminder just how difficult replacing a bunch of NHL regulars was going to be for the Gophers, but No. 10 Minnesota’s (14-6-4, 7-4-3) sweep over Ohio State (9-11-4, 1-11-2) kicked off the second half of the Big Ten conference schedule […]
