Badgers tie Michigan Tech 3-3

The Wisconsin Badger hockey team tied the Michigan Tech Huskies 3-3 in a game that saw over 60 shots on goal.

The Badgers (2-7-5, 2-5-5 WCHA) had 37 shots on goal, and scored two goals in the first period.  Junior forward Tyler Barnes opened the Badger scoring at the 6:29 mark, and was followed by sophomore forward Brendan Woods at the 8:56 mark in the first period.

Michigan Tech was able to respond to the Badger’s first goal in the opening period with a score from Malcolm Gould at the 7:43 mark.

The second period saw a 2-1 Badger advantage, and was increased to 3-1 thanks to a goal from sophomore forward Joseph LaBate at the 4:04 mark.

Michigan Tech rallied with a goal four minutes later thanks to Steven Seigo to make the game 3-2 at the 8:39 mark.

The third period saw the equalizer from the Huskies to tie the game up at 3-3 through a Blake Hietala goal at the 3:06 mark.  Overtime could not separate the two teams, and the game ended in a draw.

The Badgers, who are undefeated in their last four games (1-0-3), look to continue this undefeated streak at home December 13 and 14 as they take on Alabama-Huntsville in a two-game series.
