BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Freshman goalie Adam Wilcox made 26 saves to help the Minnesota Gophers beat Vermont 3-1 Saturday for a sweep of their men’s college hockey series.

Wilcox also was in nets in Friday’s 5-1 win by the fourth-ranked Gophers (9-2-2). For the weekend, Wilcox stopped 48 of 50 shots and held the Catamounts (2-6-2) scoreless on eight power plays.

Minnesota got single points from nine different players.

The Gophers scored twice in a span of 1:10 in the second period, getting goals from Tom Serratore and A.J. Michaelson to go up 2-0 at 3:59 of the period.

“We made some good plays in the second period,” Minnesota coach Don Lucia said. “I think the second period was our best.”

Vermont got within a score on Jacob Fallon’s goal early in the third. But Nate Condon tossed in an empty-netter to seal it with 54 seconds left.

Minnesota is unbeaten in its last seven games.

“It’s hard to win two in a row on the road. We ground it out and found a way to get it done,” Lucia said.

Brody Hoffman had 30 saves for the Catamounts.

The two teams combined to go 0-for-9 on the power play.
