Sophomore goalie Mat Robson got his first victory as the No. 10 Gophers beat Army 4-1 on Saturday night to sweep the nonconference men's hockey series at 3M Arena at Mariucci.
Robson, a sophomore from Mississauga, Ontario, made his second start in goal for Minnesota (12-9-1) since becoming eligible this month — he lost 4-1 at Ohio State on Dec. 9 in his debut. He made 25 saves against the Black Knights (8-10-2) and had a shutout for nearly 2½ periods.
Minnesota (12-9-1) took a 2-0 lead in the opening period on goals by Tyler Sheehy and Tyler Nanne, the second with 21 seconds left in the period.
Mike Szmatula made it 3-0 Minnesota just 1:17 into the second. Sam Rossini added an unassisted goal at 8:15 of the third.
Brendan Soucie scored for Army 68 seconds later. Jared Dempsey had 28 saves for Army.
The Gophers, who won 3-0 Friday, are now 10-2 at home.
