MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesota senior goalie Kent Patterson is off to a perfect start, and so are the Golden Gophers.

Patterson made 20 saves for the second straight night, notching his second straight shutout and leading Minnesota to a 6-0 thrashing of Sacred Heart.

Patterson came into the season never having logged a shutout. He got his first in Friday’s 9-0 win over the Pioneers.

The Gophers (2-0-0) dominated the two-game series. They outshot Sacred Heart 92-40. Ten Minnesota (2-0-0) players had points Saturday; 15 on Friday.
Pioneers (0-2-0) goalie Andrew Bodnarchuk made 39 saves.

Minnesota’s Erik Huala scored two goals, giving him three this season. He also assisted on a goal.

Sam Warning notched a goal and two assists and Jake Hansen assisted on four goals.

Ben Marshall, Taylor Matson and Zach Budish also had goals for Minnesota, which outshot Sacred Heart 45-20.

Friday’s shutout was the first opening-night blanking by the Gophers since 1985.
