Minnesota vs. Nebraska-Omaha Saturday Night Line Combinations

The Gophers are making one change from last night's 3-2 overtime victory over Nebraska-Omaha. Senior forward Joey Miller is taking the place of sophomore Tom Serratore on the fourth line while Blake Thompson will once again play tonight for an injured Ben Marshall.

The Mavericks, meanwhile, have made three changes from Friday night. Defenseman Kyle Ensign will be playing forward tonight for Zahn Raubenheimer while Tony Turgeon takes his place. Raubenheimer had a moment late in the game where it looked like he injured his knee but as of right now there's no injury news. In addition, Andrew Schmit takes the place of Brian O'Rourke.

Kent Patterson starts in goal for the Gophers.
