Men's Hockey

Max Zimmer tied the game and forced overtime off a rocket of a shot late in the third period.

UW earns emotional two points in comeback against Penn State

It wasn’t a win, but you couldn’t have told that from the reaction of Wisconsin’s bench as they streamed onto the ice. The emotional outpouring, from Jack Berry’s exuberant sliding fist pump to Peter Tischke’s elated hugs, wasn’t about the extra point in the conference standings that the Badgers had just earned as much as the expression of a team that has finally found its confidence after months of underperforming expectations.

Seamus Malone tallied the opening goal against Michigan Tech, but it wasn't enough as the Badgers allowed too many penalties, and goals, to give themselves a chance at the win.

Consistency, depth lifts Wisconsin to 4-2 victory over Penn State

For the majority of Wisconsin’s games this season, the story has been this: UW played well, but it still couldn’t win. With only a few series to go and No. 18 UW (7-8-2 Big Ten, 13-12-3 overall) sitting outside the top-16, close losses and moral victories are no longer enough for the Badgers. And while No. 14 Penn State (6-8-3-2, 13-11-3) led Wisconsin for the majority of the night, and the story of UW’s season looked like it was destined to repeat itself, the Badgers found a way to rewrite the script and come from behind in a thrilling 4-2 victory.

Senior Cameron Hughes and junior Seamus Malone struggled to muster many scoring chances in Wisconsin's 6-2 loss to Notre Dame. 

UW comes up short yet again in 6-2 loss to Notre Dame

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.

Even after recent struggles, Wisconsin not feeling pressure in preparation for Minnesota

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.

Senior captain Cameron Hughes and the Badgers lost two four-goal contests against Ohio State in Columbus.

Badgers almost complete comeback, ultimately tie Michigan 4-4 for four-point weekend

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.
