Badger hockey unbeaten in last eight games

The Wisconsin Badger hockey team swept the Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves with a 1-0 win Saturday night.

The Badgers (6-7-5, 4-5-5 WCHA) have won their last four games, and have recovered well from a dismal 1-7-2 start to their season.

Currently, Wisconsin sits two points away from securing a home playoff spot in the WCHA tournament with an important road series against Minnesota State next weekend.

In the win Saturday night, Derek Lee scored the lone goal in the second period at the 2:56 mark.

Alaska-Anchorage goalkeeper Rob Gunderson was kept busy the entire game making 21 saves for the Seawolves.

Badger goalkeeper Joel Rumpel was forced to make 12 saves in the shutout.

Wisconsin travels to Minnesota State next weekend and will try and continue this winning streak they have created.
