Minnesota vs. Bemidji State Friday Night Line Combinations

Minnesota is going back to a lineup which has worked in the past tonight. With Kyle Rau back after serving his one-game suspension last Saturday, Gophers head coach Don Lucia reunited the top line of Rau, Nick Bjugstad and Zach Budish. He had split up the pair against Denver, pairing Bjugstad with Erik Haula on a wing. Haula returns to center tonight along a player who had sat the past few games, Travis Boyd. Boyd takes the place of Christian Isackson.

Kent Patterson continues his streak of starts in goal for Minnesota while Bemidji State has Dan Bakala in net.
