The Maverick men's hockey team had one penalty for two minutes in last night's 3-1 WCHA win at the University of Minnesota. Highly unusual for any team, let alone for a team that heads into tonight's game in Mankato vs. the Gophers ranking 12th in the nation in penalty minutes per game with a 16.6 mark. In any event, the last time something like this happened was Nov. 7, 2003 when MSU did not have a penalty in a 3-2 home win over Alaska-Anchorage. Ironically enough, the head coach at Alaska-Anchorage at the time was John Hill. Hill currently serves as an assistant coach with the University of Minnesota.
