The Minnesota Golden Gophers Hockey team has left us wanting more quite often this season. Last Friday it seemed that they were going to do it again... and they did (kinda). The Minnesota Gophers Hockey team took on the Minnesota State Mavericks Friday and Saturday, first in Minneapolis at Mariucci Arena and then on Saturday in Mankato.
Friday night's Gopher Hockey Game, could have gone better. Despite the home ice advantage, the Gopher Hockey Roster lost the game 3-1. Kent Patterson had a career high 39 saves, topping his previous career high from just one game earlier, but even that wasn't enough to help the Gophers hold on.
Saturday night, was a totally different story. The Minnesota Golden Gophers took the Mankato Ice looking good and ready to win. The Golden Gopher Roster gave some youngsters a chance, and 3 Gopher Hockey players scored their first ever goals as Minnesota Gophers. The University of Minnesota walked away from the night with a 6-2 win!!
If you are looking for Gopher Hockey Tickets you better be willing to travel or wait, the Golden Gophers don't play in Mariucci Arena again until January!
