MINNEAPOLIS ( - Hudson Fasching tallied the game-winning goal plus an assist and both Mike Reilly and Travis Boyd added two assists as the No. 2 Minnesota men's hockey team topped Penn State by a 5-1 margin on Friday night at Mariucci Arena.

Sam Warning, Kyle Rau, Taylor Cammarata and Nate Condon also tallied goals for Minnesota while Adam Wilcox made 30 saves to pick up the win in net.

After Kenny Brooks scored 3:12 into the game, Minnesota (22-4-5 overall, 11-2-2-0 Big Ten) rallied off five-straight goals in front of the 9,929 fans in attendance as the Gophers kicked off the final home series of the season.

Sam Warning evened the game at 1-1 at 7:55 of the first with his 12th goal of the year and team-leading 31st point after being set up by a Mike Reilly takeaway.
