Frozen Four 2012: Minnesota vs. Boston College Line Combinations

Gameday is here and the Minnesota Golden Gophers are keeping the same line combinations that netted them two wins in the West Regional. Freshman Travis Boyd continues to center Nate Condon and Taylor Matson in a line that scored three goals in the 5-2 West Region final over North Dakota and the top-six remains unchanged.

Kent Patterson is in the net for Minnesota while Parker Milner is the starting goalie for Boston College.
