The Gophers are returning to a familiar lineup in the first game of their two game series against the Michigan Tech Huskies. Sam Warning returns to the lineup after being scratched Saturday against Minnesota State. The freshman has six points in 16 games but an erratic game Friday gave Christian Isackson a chance Saturday.
As always, Kent Patterson is between the pipes for Minnesotan while Josh Robinson gets the start for the Huskies.
