Hockey Badgers look to bounce back (AUDIO)

Last weekend did not go the way Wisconsin Men’s Hockey Coach Mike Eaves would have liked it to.  The #19 Badgers went on the road to North Dakota and only managed one point falling back further in a tight WCHA race.

Wisconsin entered last weekend tied for 4th in the League at 21-points and were just 4-points out of 1st.  After the weekend, they dropped to 6th in the conference and are 7-points behind leader St. Cloud State.  After skating to 1-1 tie with the Fighting Sioux Friday, the Badgers dropped a 4-1 decision Saturday.  Coach Mike Eaves on the way it ended:

Bemidji State is in Madison for the weekend starting with a 7:00 face-off Friday night at the Kohl Center.  The Beavers have struggled this season notching just 12-points in conference play.  Saturday’s faceoff is also 7:00.

The #8 Badger Women travel to St. Cloud State for games Friday and Saturday afternoons. Each day’s faceoff is scheduled for 2 PM.  Wisconsin enters the weekend in a 3rd place tie with Ohio State and Minnesota-Duluth.
