Minnesota Squeaks Through First Round
The Golden Gophers upended University of Alaska, Anchorage's playoff hopes this past weekend taking the best of 3 series 2-1. It wasn't easy for Minnesota who were trailing the Seawolves 1-0 in the third game before rallying for three unanswered goals including the insurance shorthanded goal to put the game away at 3-1. In 3 games Okposo had 2 goals. He now has 19 goals and 20 assists on the year (season and playoffs) and is tied with Jay Barriball for the team lead in points.
