Minnesota nets 4 in 3rd period to beat Denver

MINNEAPOLIS – Minnesota scored three times in four minutes of the third period to beat Denver 5-1 and keep alive its hopes of a Western Collegiate Hockey Association title.

Nick Bjugstad's power-play goal at 9:52 of the third period Saturday awakened the Gophers, who scored again at 12:24 and 13:44. Minnesota was just 1-for-9 on the power play in the series.

Zach Budish added an empty-net goal.
