The Michigan Wolverines upended Wisconsin, but couldn't slay the Minnesota dragon at last weekend's College Hockey Showcase.
Friday in Madison, David Rohlfs and Andrew Cogliano (pictured) scored 27 seconds apart in the third period to help Michigan to a 4-3 win over the Badgers. Tim Miller and T.J. Hensick also scored and Kevin Porter and Cogliano added two assists apiece.
Billy Sauer made 34 saves in the victory.
Top-ranked Minnesota, fresh off beating Michigan State Friday, dominated the Wolverines, 8-2, Saturday night. Sauer made 44 saves and Hensick had a goal and an assist for the Wolverines. Porter scored U-M's other goal.
Michigan's five-game losing streak to Minnesota is the longest since a seven-game streak that lasted from 1979-80 through 1986-87. Michigan's last win against the Gophers came on Dec. 11, 2002.
The Wolverines (11-4-0, 7-2-0 CCHA) return to CCHA action this weekend with a home-and-home series against Western Michigan. The Wolverines host the Broncos on Friday for a 7:35 p.m. puck drop on Comcast Local. Saturday's game will be played in Kalamazoo and starts at 7:35 p.m.
