Talk about good timing.
Jake Parenteau scored his first career goal in overtime at Nebraska Omaha to lift Minnesota to a huge 3-2 road win.
The Gophers were trailing 2-1 entering the third period, but a backhand goal by Nick Bjugstad leveled the score at 2-2 and forced the extra five-minute session.
That is when Parenteau went to work. Taylor Matson got his stick on a loose puck and then Nate Condon picked it up and found a waiting Parenteau. The sophomore blueliner then unleashed a shot from the top of the circles and gave Minnesota the overtime win.
The Gophers would complete the sweep of the Mavericks the following night with another 3-2 win. The two, big road wins helped pave the way for Minnesota to win the MacNaughton Cup.
