Big stretch for Gophers football recruiting + drama at the PWHL draft

Introduction: Host Michael Rand starts with the Twins, who shut out Colorado 5-0 behind a strong outing from starting pitcher Chris Paddack to start a 10-game homestand. Paddack has been very good this season against lesser competition but not so much against elite teams. He is a symbol of this year's Twins, and a key to how things go the rest of the way. Plus the drama of the PWHL Draft in St. Paul, just days after GM Natalie Darwitz was ousted from Minnesota following their championship.
