The Wisconsin Badgers were one of the hottest teams in College Hockey, entering last weekend's series with Northern Michigan at the Kohl Center with a 10-1-2 mark in the past 13 games. Bucky came crashing back to earn after losing twice to the Wildcats over the weekend, including Saturday's 6-5 overtime loss.
Wisconsin (10-9-3, 7-5-2 WCHA) surrendered a 5-2 lead in the 3rd period before losing in OT. The Wildcats (5-12-3, 2-9-3 CCHA) tied the game with less than a minute left in the third period, sending the team into overtime. Northern scored three minutes in to knock off the 14th ranked Badgers.
Sophomore Brendan Smith and Junior John Mitchell both scored two goals in the loss for the Badgers, who hit the road and return to WCHA play this weekend with a 2-game series at Alaska-Anchorage.
