After a 9-0 win Friday night, Coach Don Lucia promised to change things up for Saturday’s rematch with Sacred Heart and that is exactly what the Minnesota Golden Gophers head coach has done. Three players from last night – forwards Nico Sacchetti, Travis Boyd and defenseman Blake Thompson – are scratched while Nick Larson, Jake Parenteau and freshman Christian Isackson make their 2011-2012 Gophers debut.
