College Hockey: Gophers win seventh straight at Penn State


A pair of second period goals was all the Minnesota Gophers would need two win their seventh straight game on Friday night, beating Penn State 2-1.

Penn State took the early lead as David Goodwin beat Gopher goaltender Adam Wilcox in the first period to put the Nittany Lions up 1-0. But that's all the home team would get off Wilcox, who shut the door the rest of the way, finishing with 35 saves.

The Gophers answered early in the second. Christian Isackson evened the score with a goal assisted by Jake Bischoff and Jack Glover.

Justin Kloos then put the Gophers on top less than three minutes later, he was assisted by Brady Skjei and Michael Brodzinski.
