Every goal is a memory, one that tells a story. Lost among the thirteen Minnesota scored last weekend was a special moment by redshirt junior forward Connor Reilly.
Reilly had Minnesota's seventh of nine goals Saturday against Wisconsin. His didn't stand out or make the Sportscenter Top 10 plays.
Last weekend was his first in Wisconsin since a Corbin McGuire knee to knee hit ended Reilly's sophomore season.
"Obviously it was kind of a personal weekend but I tried not to make it like that. I wanted to make sure our team got two wins," he said.
"When you're playing and you're not afraid to make mistakes it's much easier to really make the plays and really set a guy loose or create more chances, more opportunities," said Reilly. "There's also more risk with that, but the reality is I think everyone is coming along.
"Every single player is playing well for the most part. We've gotten some good production from a few guys. We're defending really well. The reality is you have to defend well if you want to win at the end of the year. I think that's been a plus for us these past few weekends too."
"I guess when one full year passes you're not going to be pissed off or angry as much as I initially was,"
said Reilly. "Scoring, I wasn't really looking for revenge or anything, but the best revenge is two wins there and sweeping them was big."
