You can't deny how great the Gopher hockey defense has looked this year... on the ice or on paper. They haven't allowed a goal yet!
Few rivalries are more storied or speckled with glory than the competitive rivalry between Minnesota and Minnesota Duluth. The Gophers lead the all-time series with a 129-72-15 record, but the Bulldogs have made a stunning comeback, winning six of the last 10 meetings.
The teams played four really fantastic and close games last season and split the season series 1-1-2.
Minnesota will be heading to Duluth to play the national champion this weekend to begin WCHA play. Since the Gophers won back-to-back national championships in 2002 and 2003, they have played 12 games against the defending national champions. Minnesota is 9-3-1 in those games.
