NCAA Hockey Tournament: Minnesota vs. Boston University Lines

The Gophers made a few changes from their normal lineup for their first NCAA Tournament game since 2008. Senior Nick Larson remains out with an injury but normal center Taylor Matson is being moved to wing on the 3rd line. In his place between Matson and Nate Condon is Travis Boyd.

Normal third line winger Seth Ambroz is instead moved to the fourth line. Kent Patterson starts for the Gophers while Boston University stalwart Kieren Millan is in net for the Terriers.

Today's game begins at 4:00 p.m. CT and airs on Fox Sports North Plus in Minnesota, NESN in Boston and ESPN3 online nationally.
