Gophers win NCAA Hockey opener over Robert Morris

Though cliché, calling No. 1/2 Minnesota’s 7-3 victory over Robert Morris a team victory is certainly appropriate.

Condon’s second goal, a shorthanded, empty-netter late in the third period, marked the senior’s 100th career point in the Maroon & Gold. While Minnesota controlled the majority of the game, doubling up Robert Morris in shots on goal (50-25), the Colonials made the Gophers work into the
