College Hockey Roundup: Gophers fall to Penn State in overtime


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.
