#10 Serratore Scores on Senior Night
Our first highlight in our Top Plays Countdown comes from a player known more for big hits than big goals. Tom Serratore may only have scored three goals as a senior last season, but his final goal of his career won’t be forgotten any time soon.
With Minnesota tied 1-1 against Penn State late in the third period on March 1, the Colorado Springs, Colo., native found a loose puck in front of the Nittany Lions goal, spun and fired a no-look shot into the net for the eventual game winner in a 2-1 Gophers victory on Senior Night.
The goal sent Serratore and the rest of the senior class out with a win in their final game at Mariucci Arena while the Gophers went 15-1-3 at their home rink last year – the fewest losses at the venue in its 20-year history.
