Gophers Sweep Rival Badgers

This weekend the Minnesota Golden Gophers swept the defending national champion Wisconsin Badgers. After a semi disappointing series against the St. Cloud State Huskies the Gophers looked to come out strong against the Badgers, and did they ever. Minnesota won the the first game in a narrow 3 - 2 final score. The second game looked to be controlled by the Badgers until a goal in the third period put them right back in the game. Lucia broke the tie by scoring his first goal of his collegiant career. The Gophers made a statement this weekend, and hope to continue rolling next weekend when they faceoff against Michigan State and Michigan.
