The Minnesota Golden Gophers are going the Big Ten Hockey Tournament semifinals, and they can thank freshman forward Ben Meyers for having his first career multi-goal game at the perfect time.

In the third game of the series, Meyers scored twice in the Gophers’ 3-2 win over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

After Notre Dame sophomore forward Alex Steeves scored in the first period, Meyers tied the game in the second on a power play goal.

Minnesota sophomore forward Sampo Ranta followed that by giving the Gophers the lead with 8:54 left in the second period.

Meyers got his second goal on another power play with a little under four minutes remaining in the period.

The Gophers will travel to play in single-game semifinal match up at Penn State on Saturday at 6 p.m.
