Three goal 3rd period shut down Badgers

Wisconsin coughed up a 2-1 lead and fell to St. Cloud State 4-2 at the Dane County Coliseum on Friday night.  The win gives the Huskies at least a share of the WCHA’s McNaughton Cup.  The Huskies (21-13-1, 18-9-1 WCHA) can do no worse than tie with Minnesota or North Dakota, the teams closes to them with 1-game left to play.

St. Cloud State scored three times in the third period, with Nick Jensen scoring the game-winner at 16:25 of the period.

Joe LaBate and Tyler Barnes scored for Wisconsin (16-12-7, 12-8-7), which dropped the Badgers to 0-6-1 in the last 7-games against the Huskies.
