Minnesota vs. Alaska-Anchorage Friday Night Line Combinations

The Gophers are making two changes from their lineup in last Saturday's 2-1 win over Wisconsin. Travis Boyd, who sat out after playing with Zach Budish and Kyle Rau in the first game in the Wisconsin series, returns to the lineup as does Nico Sacchetti. Seniors Nick Larson and Joe Miller both sit in their place.

Alaska-Anchorage is without junior Mitch Bruijsten. The Seawolves' leading scorer was dismissed for academic reasons earlier in the week.

Kent Patterson starts in net for Minnesota while Chris Kamal, who has been a thorn in the Gophers' side in the past, gets the nod for the Seawolves.
