Michigan (3-5-0 CCHA, 5-7-0 overall) finally broke their five game losing streak with a dominating 4-1 win over Bowling Green last Saturday and they're looking to keep the momentum going. Standing in their way is the Minnesota Golden Gophers, who are in a similar boat as the Wolverines.
The Gophers are 4-7-1 overall and limp in to Yost on a three game losing streak. When's the last time both teams faced off at the College Hockey Showcase with losing records? And just like Michigan this past week losing Robbie Czarnik to the OHL, the Gophers lost defenseman Sam Lofquist to major juniors a few weeks ago.
Both teams are trying to right the ship and desperately need a win tonight.
Tonight's game can only be seen on Fox Sports North beginning at 7:35 p.m. ET. If you can't watch the game, I'll be live at Yost Ice Arena providing play-by-play and, as always, you can chat with your fellow fans.
