Gophers sweep Mavs in WCHA tournament
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Danny Irmen scored his third goal of the weekend and added an assist as Minnesota beat Minnesota State, Mankato, 5-3 on Saturday to win a best-of-three WCHA playoff series.
Irmen, who had two goals in Friday's 7-2 Gophers' win, scored a power-play goal and assisted on the eventual game-winner.
The victory gave Minnesota (26-12-1) its seventh consecutive trip to the WCHA Final Five. The Gophers will play Colorado College Friday night in the semifinals at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
"It's just huge for us to survive this weekend and advance," Minnesota coach Don Lucia said after his team improved to 22-0 in WCHA playoff games held at Mariucci Arena. "I thought for the most part we played well this weekend."
Senior forward Brad Thompson ended his college hockey career on a high note, scoring a goal and adding two assists for the Mavericks (13-19-6).
