Gophers Hockey Fight to the Finish

Things really heated up near the end of Saturday's Minnesota-Michigan Tech game. The Gophers were comfortably ahead, 6-2, near the end of the game. Players and coaches were involved when Seth Helgeson (Minnesota) and Carl Nielsen (Michigan Tech) went at it in front of the Gopher's bench.

Both players' helmets were ripped off, and Nielson got many punches in - a major no-no in college hockey. Both players were sent off the ice with penalties and the teams continued to jaw at each other.

The coaches became involved when Tech assistant coach Bill Muckalt walked toward the Minnesota bench and began gesturing at the coaches.

Minnesota went on to win.
