MINNEAPOLIS -- The fifth-ranked University of Minnesota hockey team continued its fast start to the season Friday night with a victory against a bitter rival.
The Gophers improved to 8-1 overall and 5-0 in the WCHA with a 2-0 victory over North Dakota (3-5-1, 1-4) at Mariucci Arena.
Minnesota goalie Kent Patterson recorded his nation-best fifth shutout of the season, stopping all 24 Fighting Sioux shots. His five shutouts have already tied a Gophers season record.
Nick Bjugstad scored his seventh goal of the season at the 12:44 mark of the second period to put the Gophers ahead, 1-0. Tom Serratore got his second goal of the season -- and Minnesota's second and final goal of the game -- at the 11:17 mark in the third period.
The two teams will meet again at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

The Minnesota football team was 1-6 going into last Saturday's game against Iowa. In a close game that went down to the wire the Golden Gophers pulled out a 22-21 victory over Iowa. It was only fitting that the students rushed the field at home considering they might not win the rest of the season. What they didn't realize was they would be met by a viscous meat eating...
The Minnesota Gophers hockey team is off to a fast start after sweeping Alaska Anchorage on the road last weekend. The Gophers, 7-1 overall and 4-0 in the WCHA, became the first team to earn a road sweep in Anchorage since St. Cloud State back in 2009.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Things are rarely settled in orderly fashion when Minnesota and North Dakota duel on the ice. So perhaps it was fitting that Saturday's dust-up wasn't decided until the final minute.
Gophers freshman Kyle Rau handed his team a 3-2, comeback victory, batting home a goal off a deflection with barely 45 seconds remaining in regulation.
North Dakota (3-6-1) had...
Free Press sports writer George Sipple looks at three story lines surrounding the Golden Gophers:
The University of Iowa men's swimming and diving team beat the Minnesota Golden Gophers for the first time since 1997 in an exciting meet at the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center Pool Friday night. The Hawkeyes claimed the victory over Minnesota with a score of 160.5-139.5, which now puts Iowa 3-0 on the season.
It’s been a while since I’ve had time to write a little weekend preview, sorry about the little hiatus. (I was in North Carolina one week and Vegas the other week.) After last weekend everyone has now played at least 2 league games (SCSU) and most have played 4 and UW, BSU, & MTU have played the most at 6.WCHA STANDINGSTeam........................W-L-T....Points1.

On Saturday, The Minnesota Golden Gophers travel to East Lansing, Mich. to take on the Michigan State Spartans. Kick-off at Spartan Stadium is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. CT and will be televised by the Big Ten Network.
The University of Iowa women's swimming and diving team hosted the Minnesota Golden Gophers Friday night at the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center Pool. The Hawkeyes put up a strong fight but the Gophers were able to hold off the Hawkeyes 205-95. Iowa is now 2-1 on the season.
First of all I have to comment that it appears that the departure of John Hill from the coaching ranks certainly improved the Minnesota Gophers. I believe their record is now 8 and 1 with 5 shut outs. That's a far cry from recent Gopher teams that had the talent but have been missing the national tournament lately.I think we all expected that as young as the Sioux team is this...
