Gophers Hockey Video: Travis Boyd scores highlight reel goal against Minnesota-Duluth

The junior forward scored his third goal of the season in spectacular fashion Friday night.

Minnesota junior forward Travis Boyd scored a highlight-reel goal in the second period Friday night to put the game out of reach at Mariucci Arena.

Boyd, a Washington Capitals draft pick, took a pass from Seth Ambroz (Columbus Blue Jackets) in the Bulldogs zone. He then deked around a laying out UMD defenseman before sniping a wrist shot past Minnesota-Duluth goaltender Aaron Crandall with 7:24 remaining in the second period to put the Gophers ahead 5-1.

The goal was Boyd's third of the season.

Boyd also sent Crandall packing from the game. UMD head coach Scott Sandelin replaced him with sophomore Matt McNeely.

Minnesota currently leads the Bulldogs 6-1 after 2 periods.
