I making my Gophers versus Notre Dame pick today due to the game being played tonight instead of the normal weekend games. This is a single game before they each get back to conference schedule games this weekend.
Notre Dame @ Minnesota Twin Cities: Notre Dame has had a 24 day break and should be either well rested or rusty, which one won't be known until game time. The Gophers played well during their Holiday tournament and should be up for a tough competitor. The home ice should help the Gophers prevail with a win.
