Haula led the Gophers in scoring in each of the past two seasons and ranks 49th on the school’s all-time scoring list with 124 points.

Haula scored on the Wild’s first shot of the game after he blocked Erik Cole’s shot inside the blue line and cleverly chipped the puck off the glass to create a breakaway for himself.

Haula turned on his high-speed jets, caught up to the puck and beat Lehtonen blocker-side for a 1-0 lead.

“Something you dream about,” Haula said. “It was unbelievable. Just the reaction of the crowd. Standing ovation. It took awhile for me to get over it and the chills to go away.”
