It's becoming old habit but Gophers' head coach Don Lucia is sticking with his usual lineup for tonight's game against St. Cloud State. The top three lines have remained the same for all thirteen games this season and the same six defensemen make their seventh consecutive start. Senior goaltender Kent Patterson, who hasn't missed a minute this season, once again starts between the pipes for Minnesota.
On the St. Cloud State end, the only change from last Saturday's game against Minnesota State Mankato is freshman Joey Holka in for sophomore forward Mitch MacMillan.
