On the game winner, Wilcox (pictured, Minnesota Daily photo) made the initial save from in front, but the puck skittered to his left where an unmarked Brett Knowles potted home the winner. Wilcox and the Mavericks' Stephon Williams (undrafted) came into the weekend first and second, respectively, in the WCHA in goals against average. Williams made 37 saves in the win.

    Adam Wilcox (pictured, Univ. of Minnesota photo) continued his stellar play as a freshman, stopping 24 of 25 shots as top-ranked Minnesota beat rival North Dakota, 5-1. UND scored the game’s first goal on the power play before the Gophers answered with five unanswered goals. Wilcox leads the WCHA in wins and his 2.04 GAA in conference play is second best. Friday was his 20th straight start. Wilcox has allowed three total goals against then No. 1 Boston College, then No. 2 Notre Dame, and against rival UND. Minnesota and UND face off again on Saturday. Lightning prospect Brendan O’Donnell should be back in the lineup for the second game; he’s been a scratch on Fridays recently.

    Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves 3 @ No. 1 Minnesota Golden Gophers 4

    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.

    Harvard Crimson 6 @ No. 8 Boston University Terriers 5 (OT)

    F Brian Hart, HAR: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 11 GP, 3-2-5, +1, 6 PIM

    Harvard overcame a 5-2 third period deficit to force overtime and steal a win against their rivals. The highly entertaining game was broadcast on NHL Network. Hart’s third goal of the year was scored on the power play when he took a pass at the top of the right circle and fired home a half-slapper blocker side. He showed good speed during the game, playing alongside USA World Juniors gold medalist Jimmy Vesey (Predators). Hart’s best play may have been when he sprinted back down the center of the ice on defense to tie up a trailing forward in front of the net just as he received a pass late in the game. The puck skittered safely to the corner and the game remained tied at the moment. Hart had two shifts in overtime and led at least one 2-on-1 break. Conor Morrison scored in overtime for the Crimson on a shot off an off-wing rush. It was his first goal of the season.

    No. 2 Notre Dame Fighting Irish 1 @ No. 1 Minnesota Golden Gophers 4

    G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Win, 22 saves on 23 shots, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 18 GP, 13-2-2, 1.60 GAA, .929 sv%, 3 SO

    Adam Wilcox was named second star on Tuesday night as he backstopped the No. 1 Golden Gophers to a big win over a top-2 team for the second game in a row. The Gophers defeated the visiting No. 2 Irish, 4-1, taking a 2-0 lead early, adding some insurance to make it 3-1, then finishing up with an empty net goal late. Last week they beat then-No. 1 Boston College, 8-1. Wilcox continues to be one of the best stories in the WCHA this year. He has made 17 consecutive starts for Minnesota, who is now ranked No. 1. He wasn’t at his absolute best on Tuesday night, as the shot that beat him was a rolling puck that entered the crease and bounced over his laid-down paddle and through his legs. He made up for it later with a full-extension toe save on a breakaway attempt by Notre Dame. Minnesota plays two against Alaska-Anchorage this weekend before they meet their rivals, North Dakota, in two weeks.

    After outshooting Denver 38-25 but losing 5-1 Friday night, Cornell was outshot 36-20 on Saturday night, but made a much closer game of it. Denver scored at 7:45 of the third period to break a 1-1 tie and come away with the weekend sweep.

    Harvard Crimson 2 @ No. 5 Quinnipiac Bobcats 6

    F Brian Hart, HAR: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 1-1-2, +1, 2 PIM, 3 SOG, *First Star*
    Season totals: 19 GP, 6-4-10, +4, 14 PIM

    The Bobcats won their 14th straight game, defeating Harvard, 6-2, in a game broadcast on NESN. Matt Peca (pictured) had two points and is now over .5 points per game. It’s not the point-per-game he averaged last year as a freshman, but it’s a start.

    No. 20 Holy Cross Crusaders 2 @ No. 7 North Dakota 3

    F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 18 GP, 1-5-6, -3, 12 PIM

    F Brian Hart, HAR: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 9 GP, 2-2-4, +1, 6 PIM

    Harvard continues to struggle, this time falling in overtime at Princeton. The Crimson is now 4-6-1 this season after starting ranked among the top teams in the nation. Brian Hart was minus-2 on Friday. He was on the ice for the Tigers’ overtime winner.

    No. 20 Holy Cross Crusaders 2 @ No. 7 North Dakota 5

    F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 17 GP, 5-3-8, +4, 10 PIM

    Quinnipiac completed the 2-game sweep of the Mavericks with a 3-1 win on Sunday. Lightning prospect Matt Peca had an assist in the game to give him three points for the weekend and possibly get himself back on track toward last year’s point-per-game pace.

    No. 1 Boston College Eagles 1 @ No. 4 Minnesota Golden Gophers 8

    G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Win, 32 saves on 33 shots, 1 assist, *First Star*
    Season totals: 17 GP, 12-2-2, 1.63 GAA, .927 sv%, 3 SO

    Adam Wilcox (pictured) was named tournament MVP as Minnesota crushed top-ranked Boston College to win the Mariucci Classic championship. Wilcox, who was also named to the all-tournament team, was solid all night and spectacular when he needed to be, stopping 32 shots. BC’s lone goal came with the Gophers up 7-0 late in the third period and trying to kill off a 5-on-3 power play. Steven Whitney scored on a slapshot from the circles through traffic that went over Wilcox’s shoulder as he crouched to see the shot. Wilcox stopped at least five prime scoring chances in the first period when it was a close game, then in the second came up huge multiple times, including a highlight-reel glove save on a 2-on-1. The puck carrier had his passing option taken away from him on the rush, so after trying to out-wait Wilcox, fired high glove side. Wilcox snared the puck and snapped it into his body, reminiscent of Patrick Roy in his prime.

    He came into the game seventh in the nation in goals against average and drew endless praise from Fox Sports commentators, who called Wilcox a “star” and “one of the top goalies in the country.” Noted Minnesota hockey journalist Michael Russo called him “the real deal.”

    Wilcox also had his first collegiate assist in the game. Although he likes to play the puck, his helper came when he re-directed a bad angle shot up the center of the ice. The puck split the BC defensemen and Minnesota's Sam Warning (undrafted) pulled away from the defense to corral the puck and deke the goalie for a shorthanded goal.

    Wilcox helped the Gophers exact some revenge on BC, who beat Minnesota, 6-1, in the Frozen Four last year on the Lightning’s home ice in Tampa. Things don’t get any easier for the Gophers as their next match is against No. 2 Notre Dame a week from Tuesday.

    No. 8 Western Michigan Broncos 0 @ Michigan Tech Huskies 4

    D Luke Witkowski, WMU: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 18 GP, 1-3-4, -6, 14 PIM

    WMU came up short in their bid to win the Great Lakes Invitational title, falling to unranked Michigan Tech, 4-0. Witkowski was on the ice for what turned out to be the game-winning goal, although he wasn’t directly involved in the play. A Bronco was tripped in the corner which resulted in a Tech shot from a bad angle that beat the Western goaltender, Frank Slubowski, who was not as sharp as he usually is during the game. Witkowski had a couple scoring chances, including a shot on the power play after he pinched down the weak side. His shot was disrupted as he pulled the puck from receiving it on his backhand to his forehand. One notable comment from the Fox Sports Detroit commentators was their suggestion that Witkowski and his defensive partner, Danny DeKeyser, be allowed to rush the puck more. Former NHL coach Andy Murray has WMU playing a staunch defensive system and the defense rarely jumps into the play. Scoring chances are not abundant and they only scored one goal in the 2-game tournament.

    Tech’s Phoenix Copley didn’t allow a goal in the tournament and stopped 32 shots on Sunday for the shutout – his second career shutout. Copley, who hails from North Pole, Alaska, was the backup to Lightning prospect Adam Wilcox for some of last season at USHL Tri-City.
