The University of Minnesota Golden Gophers Mens Hockey Team continues to bring joy to my life. The Gophers swept Colorado College this weekend in grand fashion. Freshman center Mike Carman scored two goals and sophomore goaltender Jeff Frazee made 31 saves on Saturday February 17th to lead the second-ranked Gophers hockey team to a 3-2 win and a two-game sweep of Colorado College. The Golden Gophers win moved Minnesota's lead in the WCHA standings to seven points over second-place St. Cloud State.
With the playoffs nearing ever closer, it feels good to know that Gophers have all the bases covered. We can shoot, we can defend and the goal tending has been solid. The maroon and gold now look ahead to next weekend's series against fourth-ranked St. Cloud State. The Gophers need to win at least one of the games to keep the momentum going and to silence the St Cloud uprising. Friday's game is in St. Cloud, while Saturday's face off is at Mariucci Arena. Both contests begin at 7:07 p.m., and will be televised on FSN North – I will be sitting front and center on my comfy sofa for both games! Go Gophers!
