The Short Story The Gophers opened the scoring with an unassisted goal at 4:06, answered by Cam Thiesing for the Buckeyes just 12 seconds later. Patrick Guzzo put the Buckeyes in the lead with a power play goal at 7:57 but back-to-back Minnesota goals, on a major power play at 9:58 and even strength at 16:58, gave the Gophers a 3-2 lead. Each team scored once in the second. Stephen Halliday knotted the score at 12:36 but the Gophers responded just over four minutes later and carried a 4-3 lead into the third. Minnesota pushed the lead to two for the first time with a power play goal at 7:28 of the third and at 15:14 Buckeye Damien Carfagna again made it a one-goal game (5-4). The Buckeyes skated with the net empty for much of the final two minutes but were unable to get the equalizer. Shots were 38-25 in favor of Ohio State, with the Buckeyes ahead 29-12 in the final 40 minutes. How it Happened • Minnesota’s Jimmy Snuggerud scored unassisted at 4:06 following a turnover in the Buckeye defensive zone to open the scoring. • Just 12 seconds later Ohio State deadlocked the game, when Thomas Weis picked off a clearing attempt along the wall by the Gopher goalie and found Cam Thiesing in front. • After review, a Buckeye was assessed a major penalty and Minnesota took advantage, tallying just eight seconds into the major power play. Ohio State killed off the rest of the five-minute chance, allowing just one shot on goal. • At 16:58 Rhett Pitlick put the Gophers ahead, scoring on the rush. • In the second, Buckeye Stephen Halliday made it a 3-3 game, as he put in the rebound of a Davis Burnside shot at 12:36. Nathan McBrayer had the second assist, his first point as a Buckeye. • Minnesota responded at 16:37 as Connor Kurth tallied and put the Gophers up 4-3. • Ohio State outshot Minnesota, 17-8, in the second period. • At 7:28 Brody Lamb gave the Gophers a 5-3 advantage with a power play goal. • Buckeye Damien Carfagna’s shot at 15:14 from the faceoff circle got through the Gopher goalie for a 5-4 game. Caden Brown and Brent Johnson assisted on the tally. • Ohio State pulled its goalie with a little more than two minutes remaining but the comeback fell short. Shots were 12-4 in favor of the Buckeyes in the third. • For the game, Ohio State had the shot advantage, 38-25. Logan Terness played the first period for Ohio State in goal and had 10 saves on 13 shots. Kristoffer Eberly came in at the start of the second and had 10 saves on 12 shots in 38:11. • Ohio State blocked 11 Gopher shots, led by Ryan Gordon with three. • The Buckeyes were 1-for-2 on the power play and the Gophers were 2-for-4. Buckeye This and That • McBrayer is the 20th Buckeye to record a point this season. • Halliday has a team-high nine assists and 13 points. He is tied with Burnside and Johnson for third on the team with four goals each. • Guzzo moved into a share of the team lead with his fifth goal of the season. He is first on the squad with four power play tallies and has a goal in three of the last four games. • Brickey also has five goals this year and he is third with 11 points. • Burnside is tied for second in assists with a career-high eight and is second with 12 points.
