Minnesota vs. North Dakota Line Combinations - Nick Larson Out With Injury

The first WCHA Final Five semifinal between Denver and Minnesota-Duluth is still going on tied 3-3 at the end of the first overtime, but the line combinations for the second semifinal between Minnesota and North Dakota are available.

Not surprisingly, both teams are keeping the same lineups from their previous games. The Gophers are without senior forward Nick Larson, who is out with an injury suffered in practice this week and will continue to use Nico Sacchetti and Tom Serratore in his role. In North Dakota's case, they only have 11 healthy forwards and coach Dave Hakstol was happy with how the Fighting Sioux played in yesterday's 4-1 win.

Kent Patterson gets the nod in net for Minnesota while UND's Aaron Dell starts for the second consecutive night.
