Game 1 versus the Golden Gophers last Saturday wasn’t an ideal outcome for the Nittany Lions. Minnesota, who went 1-for-3 on the power play, and out shot PSU by a 36-31 margin in the contest. Kenny Brooks’ power-play goal gave Penn State the early lead, but Minnesota was too tough as Penn State fell to No. 2 Minnesota, 5-1.
