Minnesota vs. St. Cloud State Saturday Night Line Combinations

The Gophers are making a couple lineup changes from last night's 2-1 win over St. Cloud State. Minnesota head coach Don Lucia is bringing in Joe Miller and Christian Isackson in place of Tom Serratore and Travis Boyd. I'm not surprised to see Boyd out because he played poorly Friday but Serratore had his moments. Everything else remains the same, with Kent Patterson making his 50th straight start in net for the Gophers

St. Cloud State, on the other hand, is making wholesale changes throughout their lineup after Travis Novak was injured last night. He's out and the Huskies are left with only ten healthy forwards. Two defensemen, Sam Zabkowicz and Brandon Burrell, are on the SCSU fourth forward line tonight instead.

As Bob Motzko said last night, Ryan Faragher gets the start for St. Cloud State after Mike Lee made 24 saves in a losing effort Friday.
