If No. 12 Wisconsin fails to make the NCAA tournament this year, Friday’s 3–2 loss to Notre Dame may be a game the Badgers look back at with regret.

Notre Dame’s Dylan Malmquist book-ended a pair of goals, including the game-winner, past Wisconsin sophomore Jack Berry, the newly elevated co-No. 1 goaltender.
With graduate transfer netminder Kyle Hayton struggling this season for Wisconsin, Berry had sought to solidify the Badgers’ situation in goal, but Friday’s meltdown creates more questions for Wisconsin going forward.
Wisconsin will have another opportunity against its new Big Ten-affiliate foe on Saturday. Puck drops at 7 p.m. at the Kohl Center.
