With Sam Warning week to week with an injury, Gophers coach Don Lucia has changed up his lines for tonight's front end of a home-and-home with Minnesota State Mankato.
Captain Zach Budish, who played on the second line the first three weekends, has been reunited with last year's linemates, Kyle Rau and Nick Bjugstad.
Third-liner Nate Condon moves up to left wing on the second line, Christian Isackson moves from the first line to the second, defenseman Ben Marshall will play left wing on the third line and defenseman Justin Holl will play right wing on the fourth line. Freshman Ryan Reilly is out.
Defenseman Brady Skjei returns from an injury, and word is that freshman Adam Wilcox was the first off the ice this morning, meaning he is likely tonight's starter.
