Minnesota blown out by Penn State

Minnesota made the game one to forget almost from the drop of the puck. No. 18 Penn State (15-13-5, 8-10-5 Big Ten), with one victory in the previous nine games, had an offensive explosion against No. 8 Minnesota (19-14-2, 10-11-2 Big Ten) in a 5-1 Gophers' loss Friday. "I was shocked," head coach Don Lucia told the Gopher Radio Network. "It just wasn't our night tonight, I don't have an explanation other than we looked tired, we looked flat, we looked mentally out of it, [and] physically out of it."
