Minnesota vs. Wisconsin Saturday Night Line Combinations - Nick Bjugstad Back In Lineup

The Gophers are only making one change Saturday night against Wisconsin but it's a big one.

Nick Bjugstad, Minnesota's leading goal scorer, returns to the lineup Saturday after missing Friday's 4-1 loss to the Badgers. He was injured in the second period of last week's 3-2 win over Nebraska-Omaha and did not return to that game as a precaution. He replaces Travis Boyd, who sits in favor of senior Joey Miller.

Wisconsin made no changes from their Friday lineup.

Kent Patterson is in net again for the Gophers after being pulled for Michael Shibrowski Friday. Joel Rumpel gets the nod again for the Badgers.
