Denver Post recap:Minnesota 4 Boston University 2.pdf

Since Minnesota is playing Boston University this week in the NCAA tournament we thought it would be fun to look back at previous games between the two teams. Boston University leads the all-time series 12-11-2, but Minnesota staked a 4-2 win in the most memorable game between the two teams.

That game was a 1976 national semifinal tilt in Denver and featured a 10-minute skirmish just 68 seconds into the game.

Minnesota, which trailed 2-1 after 40 minutes, scored three times in the third period to win 4-2 and secure a place in the NCAA championship game. The Gophers then defeated Michigan Tech to capture their second national championship
