The loss to the Fighting Hawks on Saturday called attention to an issue for the Gophers, heading into this weekend's series at No. 3 Michigan.

"Of our seven losses," Motzko said, "six are by one goal. We can't have too many more one-goal losses. We need to rectify that."

On Friday, at the Wolverines' Yost Arena, the No. 11 Gophers will be facing a talented Michigan team, which features a lineup with seven players who have been selected in the first round of the NHL draft.

Four of those players were selected in the top six picks of this year's draft: Owen Power (No. 1), Matty Beniers (No. 2), Luke Hughes (No. 4) and Kent Johnson (No. 5).

The other first-rounders are Mackie Samoskevich (No. 24 in this year's draft), Brendan Brisson (No. 29 in 2020) and Johnny Beecher (No. 30 in 2019).

I was at volleyball so I didn't see the rout at Yost. But it sure seemed impressive.

We match up really well with a team like Michigan and I think our experience was a huge factor against their youth. Was a great game and execution by the Gophs.

Another weekend another split. Wipe out a team one night, get wiped out the next. Unbelievable how inconsistent this team is. No excuse for this inconsistent play. Terrible!!
