Minnetonka vs. Brainerd/Little Falls

7:15 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 9

With the exception of No. 2-2A Edina, which begins the week with a 16-game winning streak, there isn't a hotter team in the state than No. 3-2A Minnetonka, which is unbeaten since suffering a 4-1 loss to the Hornets on Dec. 7.

Before their much-anticipated rematch with rival Edina on Jan. 11, the Skippers (14-2-1, 3-1-1) and their standout junior goaltender Brynn Dulac (.937 save percentage) head north to Little Falls for a showdown with last season’s Class 2A runner-up Brainerd/Little Falls.

Senior Gabbie Smith’s 16 goals leads all Warriors (12-5-0, 6-0-0) players by seven.
