Don Lucia became the winningest hockey coach in University of Minnesota history in the Gophers 4-2 road victory over Ohio State Friday evening.

It was the 391st victory of Lucia's career, and moved him ahead of former Gopher coach Doug Woog on Minnesota's all-time wins list.

Eleven different Gophers tallied a point in the Minnesota victory, but none had more than one.

Justin Kloos put the Gophers on the scoreboard first at the 13:06 mark of the first period, but the lead didn't last long as Ohio State's Craig Dalrymple tied it up just 12 seconds later.

Later in the first it was the same story. Sam Warning put the Gophers on top 2-1, but again Ohio State answered to tie it at two, just seconds later.

Minnesota changed their fortune in the second, as Kyle Rau and Seth Ambroz each scored to push the Gopher lead to 4-2.

Adam Wilcox stopped 24 of the 26 shots he faced in the victory.

The Gophers and Ohio State continue their series on Saturday afternoon in Columbus, Ohio.
