No. 14 Wisconsin men’s hockey split a weekend home series against Michigan Tech, dropping Friday’s game 6–2 but returning the favor with a 6–2 win on Saturday.
The Badgers (4–2–0) squandered a Seamus Malone goal on Friday, allowing four Huskies goals before freshman Roman Ahcan pulled one back with his first career Wisconsin score. Michigan Tech would add two more goals in the rout.
Former Wisconsin goaltender Matt Jurusik stopped 25 shots for Michigan Tech in the win. Junior Jack Berry allowed six goals on 34 Huskies shots.
Saturday was a different story, however, as the Badgers returned to their winning ways. After going down 2–1 in the first, Wisconsin rallied back with five unanswered goals in the win.
Malone and Ahcan each tallied their second goals of the series. Linus Weissbach and Wyatt Kalynuk also each scored and Max Zimmer bookended the scoring with a pair of goals.
Freshman goaltender Daniel Lebedeff made 24 saves in the win. Jurusik took the loss for the Huskies, letting in six on 40 Wisconsin shots.
