2012 NCAA Hockey scores: Golden Gophers get 21st win

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The Golden Gophers won their 21st game of the year this weekend. Let's take a look at their series with Minnesota-Duluth.

Minnesota's men's hockey team lost ground to Quinnipiac two weeks ago as it took a step down to No. 2 in the nation, and now the Golden Gophers are trying to work their way back to the top spot. The Golden Gophers managed a 5-3 victory over the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs on Friday night, following up with a 2-2 overtime tie on Saturday to finish the weekend with a 21-6-5 overall on the season.

Erik Haula scored two goals in the first game of the series, scoring his second on an empty net as the final period drew to a close. Minnesota held a 2-1 lead on Saturday night, but Jake Hendrickson tied it up with just over seven minutes to play.

Goalkeeper Adam Wilcox recorded a career-high 35 saves in the tie with Minnesota-Duluth, making three final stops in overtime. The Golden Gophers will now have a week of before the Denver Pioneers roll into town for a two-game series.
