MICHIGAN 7, PENN STATE 2: The third-seeded Penn State men?s hockey ended its 2015-16 campaign in the Big Ten Semifinals to second-seeded and seventh-ranked Michigan, 7-2, on Friday at Xcel Energy Center. Penn State out-shot Michigan, but it was the Wolverines who were able to find the back of the net early in the first, and then often in the second, to build a 5-0 lead. The Nittany Lions received power-play goals from defensive pairing Kevin Kerr and Luke Juha. Michigan?s Kyle Connor scored four goals including a natural hat trick to pace the Wolverine offense.
MINNESOTA 4, OHIO STATE 2: Taylor Cammarata scored twice and Tyler Sheehy added three points as the No. 20 Gopher Hockey program topped Ohio State 4-2 in Friday's semifinal matchup for the 2016 Big Ten Tournament at Xcel Energy Center.
