No. 10 Wisconsin (3–1–0 overall, 1–1–0 Big Ten) went into Boston on Friday and snagged a quality win, knocking off Boston College 5–2. Five different Badgers netted goals in the victory over the Eagles.
Sophomore forward Trent Frederic got the scoring started late in the first period, one-timing a Linus Weissbach assist past Eagles goaltender Joe Woll. Frederic has now scored a point in each Badgers game of this young season.
BC tied the game a minute-and-a-half later on a Graham McPhee goal, but redshirt senior defenseman Tim Davison would put the Badgers back on top 2-1 at just 1:13 of the second period.
Junior forward Seamus Malone scored the game-winner midway through the period, slamming one home past Woll at close range.
(Auth. note: I’m happy to say that I correctly predicted both the Malone goal and the Badgers win in my annual conversation with our good friends at BC Interruption.)

Junior forward Matthew Freytag but the Badgers up 4–1 early in the fourth on a pretty wrister from inside the offensive zone circle.
BC would pull one back but freshman forward Tarek Baker scored his team-leading third goal of the season on an empty net to cap the 5–2 win.
