A sour weekend just passed as the Golden Gophers were swept by the University of North Dakota FIghting Sioux (is that politically correct?) in their two-game set. The Gophers have now lost three straight Friday games and have fallen to a record of 21-5-3. It was ND's first sweep in Minnesota in over 25 years dating back to February 1980.
One of the bright spots of the weeked for Minnesota was the 4 assist performace of Kyle over those two games (2 assists per night). Okposo failed to tally a goal, though, managing only 5 shots in total, all in the first game. With his recent points surge Kyle has climbed back in to second on the team in points with 29, two behind Alex Goligoski. We here at OkposoNet hold out hope that Kyle will find the net this weekend as the Gophers hit the road to take on the University of Alaska, Anchorage Seawolves.
