We’re entering another weekend of non-conference hockey action but Big Ten play also begins this week. We touch on last week’s games and look ahead to this weekend. Plus, watch our weekly BTN Hockey Report video show in this post as well.
Michelle McMahon and Dan Kelly bring you the debut of the “BTN Hockey Report” with their early impressions and an update on the Big Ten/Hockey East Challenge.
Which college hockey team gets your vote for the greatest of all time? Vote for one of three Big Ten finalists in the Frozen Four Finest contest.
Two Big Ten teams were selected Sunday to participate in the 2014 NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Championship. Minnesota, the inaugural Big Ten regular-season champ, earned the No. 1 overall seed and Wisconsin, the inaugural Big Ten tourney champ, earned the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region.
Considering three of the previous four games in the inaugural Big Ten hockey tournament went to overtime, it was only fitting that the championship game did the same. This time, it was Mark Zengerle providing the heroics with the overtime game-winner to lift Wisconsin past Ohio State and to the Big Ten tourney title.
Wisconsin senior Mark Zengerle scored the game-winner in overtime to lift the Badgers to a 5-4 win over Ohio State on Saturday night in the inaugural Big Ten Men’s Hockey Tournament Championship. Tyler Barnes, Jefferson Dahl, Morgan Zulinick and Jake McCabe all had goals for Wisconsin, while junior goalie Joel Rumpel added 28 saves in the victory.
