Badger hockey draws with Michigan Tech

The Wisconsin Badger hockey team could not be separated from the Michigan Tech Huskies Friday night, as the teams drew 1-1.

The Badgers (2-7-4) and Huskies (4-8-2) could only muster six shots each in the first period.

The second period was a different story as each team had 11 shots, but could not find the back of the net.

At the 8:42 mark in the third period, sophomore forward Blake Pietila lit the lamp to give Michigan Tech the lead at 1-0.

12 minutes later, at the 16:49 mark, the Badgers equalized on a power play through junior forward Tyler Barnes.

Neither team could break the 1-1 tie at the end of regulation, and while Wisconsin held a 4-3 shooting advantage in overtime, the game ended 1-1.

Wisconsin goalkeeper Landon Peterson and Michigan Tech goalkeeper Kevin Genoe each recorded 30 saves in the game.

The Badgers take on the Huskies for the second of their two game series at the Kohl Center Saturday night.
