Michigan Tech 2, Wisconsin 1: The winning goal was controversial, but Michigan Tech is undefeated in conference play. Jordan Baker got the GWG and Josh Robinson made 23 saves. Most impressively, the Huskies outshot Wisconsin 38-24.
Minnesota 5, Minnesota-Duluth 4: The Gophers got an OT win in Duluth, and did it via great effort from some youngsters. Erik Haula and Kyle Rau each had two goals and Nick Bjugstad had 2 assists. Senior Kent Patterson made an incredible 46 saves in the win.
Denver 4, Boston College 2: Jason Zucker scored less than 4 minutes in and later added an assist on Drew Shore’s game winner as Denver is a win vs. BU tomorrow away from staking its claim as the best team in the country (I know, I know. It’s early). For their part, BC looked great offensively but Adam Murray allowed 3 goals on just 21 shots, and I think some questions need to be asked there.
North Dakota 3, Maine 1: In the best sweater matchup of the season, the Sioux got goals late from Ben Blood and Corban Knight to seal it. Missouri native Michael Parks had his first career goal in the win as well, and Brad Eidsness made 30 saves in the win. Unfortunately for Maine, their main highlight was Joey Diamond taking three penalties in the third period.
Providence 5, BU 3: In the upset of the night, the Friars won in Nate Leaman’s debut, jumping out to a 3-0 first period lead and adding two more in the 3rd, getting all of their goals from five different players.
