Minnesota vs. Nebraska-Omaha Friday Night Line Combinations

With things going well last Saturday and having Seth Ambroz play a physical role on the fourth line, Gophers head coach Don Lucia is sticking to what works. The only change in Minnesota's lineup tonight is Blake Thompson in for an injured Ben Marshall. Thompson is paired with Jake Parenteau, whose normal partner Nate Schmidt moves sides to play with sophomore Mark Alt.

Kent Patterson is between the pipes for the Gophers while Ryan Massa is doing the same for Nebraska-Omaha. Massa's normal tandem partner, John Faulkner, is scratched.
