The Gophers hockey team dropped the first game of a big weekend Big Ten series at Penn State 3-2, Friday night.

Vince Pedrie's overtime goal ended the game at the 3:57 mark of overtime. The win pulled Penn State even with Minnesota in the Big Ten Conference point standings.

After a scoreless first period, the Nittany Lions scored twice in the second on goals from Andrew Sturtz and Zach Saar.

Minnesota rallied in the third on a pair of goals from Brent Gates.

But Minnesota's rally wasn't enough as Pedrie put the game away in o-t. The same two teams will continue the series Saturday evening at Penn State.

St. Cloud State 2, Colorado College 1

The St. Cloud State Huskies held off Colorado College 2-1 Friday night.

Colorado College's Cody Bradley scored in the second period to make it a one-goal game, but they couldn't get any closer.
