1/13/17 Game Story For St. Paul Pioneer Press
MINNEAPOLIS- Kicking off a nine-week stretch with games every weekend to end the regular season, Minnesota began by building on opportunities given and took advantage of early chances with a three-goal first period in a 5-2 victory over Michigan on Friday night at Mariucci Arena.
Sophomore forward Tyler Sheehy scored two goals for the fourth time this season, and five players had multiple points as the Gophers (12-5-2, 4-1-0-0 Big Ten) won their fifth consecutive game and for the seventh time in their past eight games.
“It’s great. Any time you have diverse scoring out there, it’s good for the team,” said Sheehy, who has a team-leading and career-high 14 goals. “It’s awesome to see those guys put the puck in the net, and hopefully we can keep putting the puck in the net.”
