MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — St. Cloud State sophomore goalie Mike Lee was on his game and the Minnesota Golden Gophers followed a familiar script Friday, as the Huskies beat Minnesota 5-2 in Western Collegiate Hockey Association play.
Lee made 40 saves and five different St. Cloud State players scored goals.
“We needed this effort tonight,” Lee said. “Our defense makes my job easy.”
Lee had 27 saves in the first two periods as the Huskies (2-2-1, 1-0-0) built a 5-0 lead. Jared Festler and Tony Mosey had power-play goals and Garrett Roe scored short-handed. Brian Volpei and Nic Dowd also scored their first goals.
