Gophers Hockey: Minnesota vs. North Dakota Saturday (1/19/13) line combinations

Brace Hemmelgarn (USA Today Sports)

North Dakota is making two changes to their lineup Saturday. Freshman Zane Gothberg gets the nod in goal while Colten St. Clair is on the fourth line for Connor Gaarder. Tonight's game starts at 5 pm. and airs on Fox Sports North.

North Dakota is looking to respond from Friday's 5-1 loss with a new goalie between the pipes. After Clarke Saunders got the nod Friday, freshman Zane Gothberg (Boston Bruins) will get a chance in Saturday's contest against the rival Minnesota Golden Gophers. Gothberg is one of two changes Dave Hakstol has made to his lineup, with the other being Colten St. Clair replacing Connor Gaarder on the fourth line.

Minnesota, meanwhile is going with the same lineup. Erik Haula will once again be on the top line playing wing. The transition isn't a big deal for the junior. While Haula has spent the majority of his college career as a center, he did play on the wing growing up in Finland.
