Minn.-Duluth beats Minn. for second consecutive night

DULUTH, Minn. -- Minnesota-Duluth used a couple of first-period goals and another superb night of puckstopping from its rookie goaltender and held on to defeat top-ranked Minnesota 2-1 before a record crowd of 7,424. The non-conference victory was the fifth in a row for UMD and capped off the Bulldogs' first series sweep of their long-time instrastate rivals since Feb. 13-14, 2004 in Duluth.

Kasimir Kaskisuo, who blanked Minnesota 3-0 Friday evening in Minneapolis, finished with 24 saves while improving to 7-3-0 on the year. He had gone 149:37 without allowing a goal (going back to last Saturday night) before Gopher Leon Bristedt struck with just under 10 minutes to go in the third period. 

Kaskisuo's teammates picked up right where they left off in the series opener, getting a goal 28 seconds in from Dominic Toninato. A sophomore center, he jammed in a loose puck inside the Minnesota crease for his nation-leading ninth goal of the year. With 2:55 to go before intermission, Karson Kuhlman picked up the eventual game-winner when he tipped in sophomore defenseman Willie Raskob's shot from the point. That gave him four goals on the season.

The Bulldogs, who have yet to lose on a Saturday or Sunday this season (6-0-0), are now 8-4-0 overall while Minnesota, which was outshot 34-25, is 7-3-0.
