Another 40 minutes of strong play against one of the nation’s top teams, and once again nothing to show for it.A night after breaking a 38-game unbeaten streak when leading after two periods and costing themselves a chance at a marquee win, the No. 12 Wisconsin men’s hockey team (4-5-1 Big Ten, 10-9-2 overall) was once again done in by a late-game offensive surge by No. 4 Notre Dame (10-0-0, 16-3-1) as they fell 6-2 Saturday night at the Kohl Center.The two teams traded goals for much of the first two periods, with the Irish taking a pair of one-goal leads on a power play tally from sophomore forward Cal Burke and a shorthanded strike from junior defenseman Dennis Gilbert.

No power play goals, no problem: Wisconsin earns 3-1 win over the Bulldogs despite no special teams goals
The Wisconsin Badgers (10-0-0 WCHA, 19-1-0 overall) defeated the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs (5-7-0 WCHA, 9-10-0) by a score of 3-1 on Saturday afternoon, earning their 19th win of the season.
No. 1 Wisconsin (18-1-0) handled Minnesota Duluth (9-9-0) with ease Friday afternoon, beating up on the Bulldogs, winning 5-1.
With recent surprise losses to 1-12-1 St. Lawrence, a Michigan State team that is 1-4-1 in the Big Ten and 5-5-2 Mercyhurst, the Badgers have dropped from No. 5 in the nation to No. 14, and easily could be feeling the pressure of an upcoming weekend trip to No. 7 Minnesota (3-4-1 Big Ten, 9-6-1 overall). But, despite its recent losses — dropping from a championship contender to a fringe tournament team and traveling to a challenging atmosphere to play a difficult opponent — Wisconsin (3-2-1-0, 9-6-2-0) is not letting the pressure get to them.

ARLINGTON, VA — Wisconsin’s trip to the nation’s capitol was supposed to serve as a chance for a pair of additional non-conference games, as well as continue Head Coach Mark Johnson’s tradition of playing neutral site games in areas without a women’s collegiate program.But instead the number-one ranked Badgers (16-1-0) were dealt their first loss of the season Friday in a monumental upset, as they fell to upstart Northeastern (8-7-1) 3-2 in suburban Washington D.C.The Huskies capitalized on a slow start from UW and a sterling, 39-save performance from freshman goalie Aerin Frankel to become the first unranked team to beat Wisconsin since Bemidji State in January of 2015.“We didn’t capitalize on our opportunities and their goaltender played really well,” Johnson said.It didn’t take Northeastern long to jump out to a surprising lead.
They were losing, then winning, then losing again and then they ultimately tied.Saturday night’s matchup with Michigan (2-2-1-1 Big Ten, 6-4-2 overall) followed an unusual, yet familiar story for Wisconsin’s men’s hockey team (3-2-1-0, 8-5-2), as they mounted a comeback to erase an early deficit but couldn’t seal the deal in an eventful 4-4 tie.The stage was set dramatically in the first seven minutes as the Badgers dug themselves a quick two-goal hole on goals from Michigan’s Cooper Marody and Tony Calderone.
