The opening round of the "Border Battle" with the Wisconsin Badgers belongs to Minnesota Friday.
The Badgers were called for two major penalties that helped the Gophers build a big edge in shots on goal in Western Collegiate Hockey Association play in front of a full house of more than 10,079 on Friday night, Nov.16, at Mariucci Arena, reported by the Star Tribune.
The two teams entered the third period tied at 2-2, but Peterson held his ground the rest of the way and finished with 41 saves, reported by the Minnesota Daily.
The Gophers and Badgers will conclude their weekend series Saturday at Mariucci Arena.
