G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Win, 17 saves on 20 shots
Season totals: 19 GP, 14-2-3, 1.67 GAA, .925 sv%, 3 SO
Adam Wilcox started his 18th straight game, but top-ranked Minnesota needed to come from behind to steal a win in a classic trap game. The Seawolves scored twice in just over three minutes as the third period was starting to wind down, but the Gophers scored twice late, including the game-winner in the last minute. Minnesota is coming off wins over then-No. 1 Boston College and No. 2 Notre Dame. They face their WCHA rivals, North Dakota, next weekend. Beware of trap games.

WMU peppered LSSU goalie Kevin Kapalka (undrafted) with 44 shots, including nine in overtime, but the game officially ended in a 1-1 tie. LSSU won the shootout, 2-1.
