MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Sebastian Stalberg and Connor Brickley had two goals apiece to lead Vermont past Minnesota 5-4 Sunday for a split of their weekend men’s college hockey series.

Stalberg and Brickley each scored during a four-goal outburst that led to the Golden Gophers’ first loss of the season. Minnesota (5-1-0) had taken a 3-1 lead on Nate Schmidt’s power-play goal at 5:28 of the second period.

But the next 20 minutes belonged to the Catamounts (1-1-0), who lost their season opener to Minnesota 6-0 on Friday.

Chris McCarthy had a goal and two assists for Vermont. Kyle Reynolds and Michael Paliotta each added two assists.

Schmidt had two assists and Erik Haula had three for the Gophers. Kyle Rau had a goal and an assist.

Minnesota got 20 saves from Kent Patterson. Rob Madore made 31 saves for Vermont.
