Matthew Knies Overtime Game Winning Goal Vs 7 North Dakota

4.2 5 312

Playing in front of an over-capacity crowd of 10,418, the Golden Gophers tied the game with the goalie pulled when Mason Nevers jumped off the bench and found the back of the net from the high slot as the clock hit 1:24 remaining in regulation to force overtime. It was pure tenacity from Knies getting the game winner as the sophomore muscled his way to the net winning a one-on-one battle and while falling, slid the puck under the goalie’s pads 21 seconds into OT.
