SECOND PERIOD RECAP:
Minnesota’s unquestionable quality continued to shine through during Saturday’s second period, and the Gophers doubled their lead near the half-way point of the frame.

Rau’s second goal of the night, this time beating Faulkner low from close range, made the score 3-1 at 9:24 of the period. It was Rau’s second unanswered goal for the visitors, with both of his strikes coming while Minnesota was on the power play.

UNO’s penalty-killing units have been the Mavericks’ pride and joy this season, coming into Saturday’s game at the top of that statistical category in the WCHA. The Gophers had little trouble, though, in finding the net while having the numerical advantage.
