Game Story: Kloos, Pitlick lead way in win over Penn State (St. Paul Pioneer Press)

2/17/2017 Game Story

Minnesota 6
Penn State 3

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Once denied, Justin Kloos and Minnesota could not be stopped a second time on the road against Penn State.

Initially believing he had given the Gophers a 4-2 lead Friday night by tipping a shot through the legs of Penn State goaltender Peyton Jones, Kloos’ first attempt at his 15th goal of the season was overturned. After a review, it was ruled Minnesota’s captain played the puck with a high stick.

Four minutes later, Kris Myllari tied the score at 3 for Penn State. No matter. Kloos put the Gophers ahead for good with six minutes remaining in regulation on the power play, one-timing the puck into the back of the net.

Minnesota scored twice more in the next 4:34 to win 6-3 over the Nittany Lions. The Gophers continue to lead the Big Ten.

“We never really felt like the game was in too much jeopardy. Obviously we got the power play pretty quickly after (Myllari’s goal) and then felt like we had the momentum from there,” said Kloos.
