Minnesota Gophers Alaska Anchorage Seawolves Weekend Game Reviews
This weekend (and week) was another great one for Gopher Hockey as they came away with two MORE wins against Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves. Three wins in one week. No surprises there.
And here is a short recap of the Gopher Alaska-Anchorage hockey games.
Friday 01/11/13 Minnesota Gophers vs. Alaska-Anchorage W 4-3
Saturday 01/12/13 Minnesota Gophers vs. Alaska-Anchorage W 7-1
The sophomore forward, Kyle Rau, who leads the Gophers with 13 goals, scored two goals in a span of 6 minutes to record his first collegiate hat trick and break open a close game into a 7-1 Minnesota win for the team's first WCHA sweep.
Minnesota returns to action next weekend at Mariucci Arena, hosting WCHA rival North Dakota for the final time in the regular season as members of the WCHA. Friday's series opener is set for a 7 p.m. start while Saturday's finale will begin at 5 p.m. as part of Hockey Day Minnesota.
