WISCONSIN 5, MICHIGAN STATE 2 | RECAP

The Wisconsin men’s hockey team has struggled on the power play this season, entering Friday’s contest against Michigan State (9-14-7, 3-6-6-4 Big Ten) having converted on just over 15 percent of their attempts. Turns out some things have to get worse before they get better. The Badgers (18-9-2, 9-5-1-0) allowed a short-handed score on their first power play of the game before redeeming themselves with tallies on their next two chances to fuel a 5-2 victory at the Kohl Center.

After sophomore Casey Bailey tied the game with five seconds left in regulation, freshman David Goodwin completed the comeback as his overtime game-winner lifted the Penn State men’s hockey team to a 5-4 victory against No. 10 Michigan at Yost Ice Arena. The Nittany Lions, who improved to 6-19-2 overall and 2-10-1-0 in the Big Ten, exploded for five goals against a Michigan (14-10-3, 6-6-1-1 Big Ten) defense that entered the game averaging fewer than two goals against per game at home. Penn State, which defeated the Wolverines Feb. 8 for its first conference win, sent Michigan to its fourth straight loss with its first conference road victory.
