The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for the Wolverines as they were coming off sweeps of No. 10 UMass and Big Ten rival Penn State. Michigan had risen back up to No. 3 in the country but that is once again in jeopardy due to the loss on Friday night.
Saturday, though, they will look to earn a split with rival Minnesota and keep pace with Ohio State at the top of the conference standings.
The Golden Gophers will look to finish the sweep and take the season series against Michigan. The teams split a two-game series at Michigan earlier this year.
Minnesota has now won six of seven and is playing its best hockey of the season. The Gophers' one loss during that time was a tough 3-2 defeat to Alaska.
