Michigan Tech swept by Gophers

By Andy Bourdeau/Michigan Tech Beat Writer

Michigan Tech went on the road for its last regular season series away from the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena and was swept by the nationally-ranked Gophers from Minnesota, 5-2 both nights.

Friday, MTU took the lead, when Daniel Holmberg buried a 2-on-1, but 23 seconds later, UM tied it, then took the lead for the remainder of the game.

The second goal came from Milos Gordic as he was able to put home a power play goal in the third to bring the game to 4-2, but it was not enough, as the Gophers added an empty-net goal with one second remaining to secure the win.

Kevin Genoe played in net for the Huskies.

Saturday, the Gophers got on the board first and never relinquished the lead. MTU received goals from Gordic and Ryan Furne and cut the lead to two for the third period. Again, MTU had sustained pressure, but were unable to get any closer. After a two-minute minor with a minute and a half remaining, the Gophers knocked in a goal which ended any hope of the Huskies coming back.

Josh Robinson started in net on Saturday for the Huskies.

The Huskies will end the regular season at home against the winners of the MacNaughton Cup, North Dakota, this weekend.
