MINNEAPOLIS - Adam Wilcox made a career-high 35 saves as the No. 2 Minnesota men's hockey team tied Minnesota Duluth 2-2 in overtime on Saturday at Mariucci Arena.
Mike Reilly and Tom Serratore scored for the Gophers (21-6-5 overall, 13-6-5 Western Collegiate Hockey Association) while the team's rookie netminder was solid in goal to move to 20-5-5 in his first campaign with the Maroon and Gold.
Reilly opened the night with his third goal of the year, a power-play score at 18:11 of the first period that was set up by Ben Marshall and Sam Warning.

Minnesota finished the night 1-for-4 on the power play while the Bulldogs were 1-for-5 including two-minute advantage in the overtime period.
