The No. 14 Wisconsin Badgers (2-2-0, 2-2-0-0-1-0 Big Ten) were swept by the No. 6 Michigan Wolverines (4-0-0, 2-0-0-1-0-0 Big Ten) on Friday night, losing 2-1 in overtime at LaBahn Arena in Madison.

Junior Roman Ahcan notched his first goal of the season just two minutes into the second period on a perfect power-play pass from senior Tarek Baker giving the Badgers the lead and their fourth first goal in four games.

The Wolverines scored in the second period on a shot from Nick Granowicz to tie the game and send the contest into overtime after a scoreless third period. Michigan outshot Wisconsin 36-23 for the game, including 19-8 in the third and OT.

With just 26.6 seconds remaining in OT, Thomas Bordeleau scored a GREASY game-winner to give Michigan the extra points.

Goalie Robbie Beydoun had 34 saves on the night in his fourth straight start.

Here are some notes from the game:

  • Sophomore Cole Caufield posted his fourth assist of the season giving him one in each game of UW’s four games
  • Senior Tarek Baker has his third consecutive game with an assist
  • Wisconsin’s power play is 4-14 (28.6) scoring a power-play marker for the fourth consecutive contest.
