The Wisconsin Badgers scored four third-period goals to knock off the 2nd seeded Denver Pioneers 6-2 on Saturday night in the NCAA Midwest Regional at the Kohl Center.
Michael Davies tallied two goals and an assist to set up a Regional Final game against North Dakota Sunday night.
Wisconsin (16-16-7) is the fourth team in history to enter the tournament with a sub-.500 record. But it's the Badgers that moved within one win of a trip to the Frozen Four, ironically in Denver. The Pioneers finished the season 26-14-1, won't get to participate in the Frozen Four tournament on their home ice.
