The Minnesota Golden Gophers (5-5) are looking to become bowl eligible today when they face the #23 Northwestern Wildcats (7-3) in Evanston, Illinois. The #6 St. John's Johnnies (9-1) are on the road to face #9 North Central College (9-1) in the opening round of the NCAA D-III playoff…
Jordan Murphy, Reggie Lynch and Amir Coffey each scored 18 points to lead Minnesota to the win. All five Gophers starters scored in double figures, with Murphy, Lynch and Nate Mason each posting double-doubles.
The St. Cloud State Huskies Men's Hockey team (7-2-0) has dropped to #2 in this week's USCHO and USA Today polls following this past weekend's sweep by Denver, who has climbed from #3 back into the top spot.
By all accounts, the Minnesota Wild's start to the 2017-18 season has been underwhelming -- sitting in last place in the Central Division. After a 5-7-2 start and three straight losses the Wild have rebounded for two straight shutouts.
