Both Gopher teams got big wins yesterday with the women defeating UMD 7-1 and the Men crushing Michigan 6-2.  Tonight we have two more important games for both teams.

The Gopher Women can clinch the WCHA Championship with a win and a Wisconsin loss at Ohio State. (Ohio State led 1-0 after the first period).  If WI wins, no matter what the Gophers do they can not clinch tonight.  Its Senior Day for the Gophers, who will be honoring the four seniors on the roster in Rachel Ramsey, Rachael Bona. Meghan Lorence, and Shyler Sleta.

The Gopher men are just 3 points out of first place in the Big Ten.  Michigan leads with 24 points, Penn State has 22, and the Gophers have 21.  A win by MN would put them in a tie with the Wolverines possibly for first place depending on how Penn State does against Michigan State.  It also sets up another HUGE series next week for the Gophers at Penn State.
