Gophers pad lead in Big Ten with win over PSU

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The top-ranked Minnesota men's hockey team padded its lead atop the Big Ten standings by downing Penn State 5-2, at Pegula Ice Arena on Monday night.

Sam Warning snapped a 14-game goalless drought with a pair of goals to guide the Gophers to a series sweep in the first-ever conference series at the new PSU hockey facility.

With the victory, Minnesota moved to 5-0-1-0 in league play and now sits four points ahead of second-place Wisconsin. The 15-3-2 overall record is the program's third-best through 20 games.

Adam Wilcox matched a career high by recording 36 saves on Monday.

The Gophers resume conference action Friday night at 8 p.m. when they host Ohio State in the Hockey City Classic at TCF Bank Stadium.
