The Minnesota Golden Gophers Men's Hockey Team opened their season Friday against North Dakota and in one word the game, SUCKED.
The Men's Gopher Hockey Team lost to North Dakota 0-4. North Dakota scored twice on a power play and the Gophers seemed to be lost as to what to do when they were in the same position. This was the first season opener in 3 seasons that the Gophers lost.
Saturday night's game against the Fighting Sioux was slightly better with the final score being 3-3. The Minnesota Golden Gophers are now 0-1-1 overall, while North Dakota is 3-0-1 and extended its home unbeaten streak to 16 games. If the Gophers want to have a prayer of turning their season around they will need to win against Denver this weekend. Minnesota takes on Denver at Mariucci Arena Friday at 7:00.
