"A Good Rivalry" = A Great Game


This weekend the Huskies will face their long standing I-94 rival the University of Minnesota Gophers. If you have been following the Gophers thus far this season, to say they are doing very well is an understatement. Going into the weekend the Gophers are 7-1 WCHA, 10-2 overall and are coming off a split at Wisconsin. Meanwhile the Huskies are 3-2-1, 5-5-2 and are coming off a split at MSU-Mankato. This weekends games should be a big test for the Huskies and a great opportunity for them to prove that they are still strong despite the major losses of captains Drew LeBlanc and Mike Lee. Gophers Coach Don Lucia had this to say about the Huskies:
"We know that when we go to St. Cloud, the place is going to be packed and the students are excited. I am sure they will have a little high-fuel octane in their system when we get there. But that is what makes it fun. It is a good atmosphere. It is a good rivalry." 
The Huskies will face the Gophers at the National Hockey Center on Friday night. Fans can watch the game on Fox Sports North. Saturday night the rivalry continues down at Mariucci. Because of the Wild game, you will have to find the game on an alternate channel (check here). Fans can expect a high-energy, exciting game so be sure to watch. Go Huskies!
