Go Gophers!
Editor's Note: The 2011-12 Minnesota men's hockey season was filled with memorable moments and dramatic comebacks that eventually culminated in a WCHA championship and the Gophers 20th NCAA Frozen Four appearance. This month, we take a lot back at the Top 10 memorable moments from the 2011-12 season. Special thanks to the incomparable Frank Mazzocco, who hosts the countdown for us.

No. 9 - Sam Warning's Late Goal Beats St. Cloud State
No. 10 - Rau Rolls The Dice

It was one of those nights.

Minnesota was thoroughly dominating St. Cloud State on Jan. 28, but was having trouble putting away the pesky Huskies on the road. The Gophers would outshoot St. Cloud State 46-12 for the game, but the two teams were deadlocked 2-2 with less than 90 seconds to play.

That is when Jake Hansen, Justin Holl and Sam Warning broke out on a three-on-two rush and used quick, crisp passing to secure the Minnesota win. Hansen found Holl who quickly found Warning who found the back of the net to lift Minnesota to a 3-2 win in St. Cloud.

The goal was Warning's first since Oct. 21 and was his fourth of the season, as he ended a lengthy goal-scoring drought. It was also his first WCHA point.
