Up North Sports Report: Dugas to get the start vs. Gophers, pregame notes

I'm killing some time here in the press box at Mariucci Arena with two hours to go before game time. Here's some pregame info for you.

Quick lineup items to note.

-Freshman backup goalie Mathieu Dugas will get the start in net for the Beavers instead of Dan Bakala. He started in BSU's 5-0 win over Northern Michigan and had 13 saves in the shutout. Bakala played Saturday vs. Minnesota.

-On defense, Dan MacIntyre replaces Matt Carlson on the fourth pairing with Ryan Adams.
