No. 5 Wisconsin men’s hockey loses to St. Lawrence 6–3

The Badgers dropped the home game to the Saints.

For a growing team, there will be lumps along the way. Saturday’s game against St. Lawrence was pretty darned lumpy for No. 5 Wisconsin.

After defeating the Saints 3–2 in game one of the series, the Badgers (6-3-1 overall, 1–1–0 Big Ten) dropped a howler 6–3 to the previously winless team.

Twice the Badgers battled back from deficits to tie the game, but St. Lawrence broke it open with three goals in the third period to bury the Badgers.

Right wing Ryan Wagner scored two goals in the losing effort. He is now tied for the team lead with five goals. Captain Cameron Hughes added a third for the Badgers.

Sophomore Jack Berry managed just seven saves on 11 shots before being pulled in the third period. It was Berry’s second start of the year coming after last week’s 4–0 shutout of Northern Michigan.

Wisconsin hosts No. 4 North Dakota Nov. 3–4 at the Kohl Center in a showdown of top-10 teams. The Fighting Hawks are coming off of a split two-game series at Colorado College.
