After getting two even-strength goals in their last 11 games, Minnesota head coach Don Lucia is finally tinkering with the Gophers' second line. The only change from Friday's 2-1 loss to UND is Sam Warning, who was non-existent Friday, sitting in favor of senior Joey Miller.
Kent Patterson is between the pipes for Minnesota. North Dakota is using the same lineup as last night, which includes Danny Kristo. The junior received a game misconduct in the first period for checking Minnesota's Ben Marshall from behind.
Minnesota Golden Gophers Line Combinations

Joey Miller - Erik Haula - Jake Hansen
Nate Condon - Taylor Matson - Seth Ambroz
