Notebook: Gophers embarassed after sweep by Minnesota-Duluth

MINNEAPOLIS -- Atrocious. That was the word Gophers forward Connor Reilly used to describe last Friday's performance by Minnesota. The Gophers were blanked 3-0 at home by rival Minnesota Duluth, and the Bulldogs went on to sweep Minnesota with a 2-1 win Saturday.
