Mavericks Sweep Gophers During Weekend Series

The Minnesota Gophers have lost an entire series this weekend against the Mankato Mavericks. According to The Star Tribune, this is the first time the Marvericks have sweep the Gophers in mens hockey since they began in 1997.

Minnesota lost 2-6 on Friday night as well as 1-3 Saturday. Many attribute the loses to multiply player penalties.

"Obviously, losing those two guys in the second period really hurt us," Gophers forward Ryan Flynn tells The Pioneer Press.

Although the Gophers were earning more penalties than shots on the goal, coach Tony Lucia said "It wasn't the result we wanted," he said, "but I have no issue with how hard the kids played tonight."
