Tonight marks potentially the final game at the Kohl Center for Wisconsin seniors Ryan Little, Derek Lee and John Ramage. Next weekend Wisconsin will be in Omaha, and will host St. Cloud at the Coliseum in two weeks because of a scheduling conflict with the WIAA Boys Basketball tournament.
Of course, Wisconsin is hoping to earn a top six spot in the WCHA standings which would mean that they would host a first round playoff series at the Kohl Center March 15th & 16th.
Landon Peterson will start between the pipes for Wisconsin. Joel Rumpel has started the previous three games for the Badgers. Other changes for the Badgers include Eddie Wittchow in on defense for Chase Drake, and Brad Navin replacing Matt Paape on the fourth line.
